Still a victory short of qualifying for bowl eligibility, the Trojans are up against ninth-ranked Arizona today at the Coliseum.

A quarter of a ton. Five-hundred pounds. Rob Waldrop can lie on a weight-training bench and shove that much iron up over his body. The Arizona nose guard, the powerful engine driving the relentless Wildcat defense that USC faces Saturday in Tucson, has not only taken his game to the next level, he has taken it to areas largely unexplored in college football.
