JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was one of the biggest, and perhaps the most quickly forgotten, interceptions in NFL playoff history. When Seattle's Richard Sherman tipped away a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in the NFC championship game, linebacker Malcolm Smith caught the ball to complete a play that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. But Smith's heads-up effort instantly became an afterthought when Sherman's emotional postgame outburst made the cornerback one of the Super Bowl's main story lines.

Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith had two huge interceptions during the postseason, including a pick-six of Denver quarterback Peyton Manning that helped him earn MVP honors at Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday night. But something strange happened after the game - Smith's postgame press conference was intercepted from him. By a guy wearing a red flannel shirt. As the third-year linebacker from USC was describing what it was like to be the Super Bowl MVP, a man identified by New Jersey State Police as Matthew Mills strolled to the podium, grabbed the microphone and rather calmly stated, "Investigate 9/11.

At the Starr house in San Diego on Sunday, there was screaming during the Super Bowl when Malcolm Smith, a 2007 Woodland Hills Taft gradate, returned an interception of a Peyton Manning pass 69 yards for a touchdown. "It was pandemonium," said Troy Starr, who coached Smith at Taft. Smith was named MVP of the Super Bowl after helping the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos, 43-8. "How cool is that?" Starr said. "It couldn't have happened to a better kid. " Starr, now the head coach at Helix High, coached Smith and his older brother, Steve, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants.

Staying under the radar might not be possible after Sunday night when the third-year linebacker from USC returned an interception for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and was voted the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLVIII. Smith also made nine tackles as the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, at MetLife Stadium.

More than $14 billion in child support was left unpaid to American parents in a single year - more than 1 out of every 3 dollars that were due, the U.S. Census Bureau announced Wednesday. Millions of parents are awarded child support every year, but getting it is another story. Fewer than half of eligible parents received all of the child support they were due in 2011, according to a newly released report based on the Current Population Survey. About a quarter got none. Most parents were granted support through formal legal agreements established by the courts or other government entities.

USC Coach Pete Carroll on Saturday all but made official what has been evident since offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian became head coach at Washington: Carl Smith appears set to rejoin the Trojans staff as quarterbacks coach. Smith, who held the same position in 2004, is observing practices this week and has been a presence around the program since the Notre Dame game last month. For the last two days, Smith has worn a USC sweat shirt and cap.

Malcolm Smith thought for a moment, smiling as always, as he pondered the question. He had just arrived home after driving at least 8,500 miles in the Paris-to-Dakar rally, 22 days across the mostly uncharted western part of Africa, zigzagging through the heartland of the Sahara Desert. "Go back? You bet I would," Smith said. "I would like to see improvement in the safety regulations, but I'd go back in a second. I hope to be there again in 1989."

A major question mark loomed when USC opened spring practice last month -- and it had nothing to do with the Trojans' quarterback situation. The competition to replace Mark Sanchez dominated the buzz before and throughout workouts, but the linebackers trying to fill the shoes of an entire NFL-bound unit also warranted scrutiny.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Their journeys to the Super Bowl might have been on different roads, but they all started from the same spot - playing college football in Los Angeles. USC and UCLA will have plenty of presence in Sunday's Super Bowl and, although most are backups, names familiar to Southern California football fans are sure to crop up. Seattle Seahawks linebackers Malcolm Smith and Mike Morgan played for the Trojans, and running back Derrick Coleman for the Bruins. Smith, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011, provided the game-saving interception in the Seahawks' NFC championship game victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Seattle Seahawks lowered the Legion of Boom on the Denver Broncos, easily rolling to a 43-8 victory in Super Bowl 2014. The Seahawks' menacingly nicknamed defense was dominant, holding the Broncos without a first down until the 20th minute of the game, and Seattle continually made Denver pay for its sloppy play, which included four turnovers. It was the first Super Bowl championship for the Seattle franchise, which was making its second Super Bowl appearance. The Seahawks struck quickly in each half, scoring points at the 12-second mark in each.
