Marques Anderson has regained his job as the starting left cornerback, a move initiated last week at Washington and set to continue Saturday against USC, just in time to get part of the responsibility of containing R. Jay Soward. Anderson was in the opening lineup the first two games, only to be replaced by Ryan Roques amid harsh words by Coach Bob Toledo as part of the Sept. 21 shake-up that hit the entire secondary.

When the Bruins opened practice Saturday at Spaulding Field, it marked Anderson's first full-team participation in a little more than 20 months. He hasn't played in a game since the Rose Bowl loss to Wisconsin.

Glenn Thompkins had spent time Wednesday morning with Marc Dove, who oversees defensive backs at UCLA. The topic was playing time, which Thompkins got none of against Washington State. "He wanted to make sure I wasn't getting discouraged, that I wasn't getting down on myself or giving up," Thompkins said. "He told me to keep working hard." A few hours later he was working with the first string.
