The ball was right there where it had to be. It floated toward the receiver's chest. He only had to leap three feet forward, tuck it in and dash across the goal line six yards away. Rod Sherman put the ball away, wheeled and streaked through the end zone triumphantly. Behind him, the burned defender clasped his hands to his forehead and moaned. On the sideline, his coach did the same thing, and Life magazine forever captured the instant in a full-page photo.

When Johnnie Morton caught 88 passes two seasons ago, it was 20 more than the previous one-season USC record. But Keyshawn Johnson is on track to at least approach Morton's mark. He has caught eight passes in each of the Trojans' first two games and that average the rest of the season would take him to 88. Johnson, with 82 catches, has jumped from 21st on USC's all-time list to 13th, where he is tied with Hal Bedsole.

The last time USC and Texas played a football game was Sept. 23, 1967, and 67,705 at the Coliseum watched O.J. Simpson run for 158 yards in a 17-13 Trojan victory, prompting Texas coach Darrell Royal to say, "I hope we don't see anybody with more capabilities, and I don't think we will." Perhaps until today. Royal, recently reached by phone, said about the only difference he sees between Simpson and current Trojan running back Reggie Bush as football players is "O.J. is a few inches taller."

It was Nov. 28, 1964, and it was easy to cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish came to the Coliseum with a 9-0 record, a No. 1 national ranking and a Heisman Trophy winner with a rags-to-riches story. It was to be the cherry on top of the hot fudge sundae, a final time to shake down the thunder. Instead, it turned into a game for the ages, a legendary classic between schools that will meet in football Saturday for the 84th time. The shocking and controversial defeat for the Irish happened 48 years ago and remains etched in the minds of thousands of fans, both Irish and Trojans.
