Two members of a West German terrorist group were sentenced to life imprisonment Wednesday for the 1977 killings of a prominent banker and a leading industrialist. Adelheid Schulz, 29, and Rolf Wagner, 40, both leading members of the Red Army Faction, a group of leftist terrorists, were sentenced by a Duesseldorf court. The life terms were imposed as terrorist activity, mounted principally by the same urban guerrilla group against military targets, continued to plague the country.

USC rush offense vs. Penn State rush defense Tailbacks Stafon Johnson, C.J. Gable and Joe McKnight each has gained more than 620 yards, but the Trojans have not established themselves as a dominant running team. Johnson is nursing a sore kneecap but is expected to play. The tailbacks will rotate in and run behind a line led by sophomore center Kristofer O'Dowd and senior guard Jeff Byers. Penn State ranks ninth nationally against the run.

Aaron Corp once again is one play away. USC Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that the redshirt freshman quarterback had performed well enough during postseason practices to be starter Mark Sanchez's backup for Thursday's Rose Bowl game against Penn State. "I feel confident and comfortable," Corp said. "I'm excited to regain the spot." Corp began the season in the same one.

What goes up, must come down. The NFL's passing numbers have come up, so the quarterbacks must come down. And there's scarcely a better time than now to stock up on those relentless pass rushers, as this NFL draft class is loaded with them. Some predictions estimate as many as half the players selected in the first round Thursday will be defensive linemen. "Everybody needs pass rushers," New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan told reporters recently. "We were [eighth] in the league last year in sacks and third in the league in defense, and yet we need pass rushers.

Reporting from New York Akeem Ayers came to New York looking for answers, but it wasn't until he returned to Los Angeles that he got them. The UCLA linebacker, who attended the first round of the NFL draft thinking he would be among the first 32 selections, flew home disappointed Friday — only to learn when he got back that the Tennessee Titans had made him the seventh pick of the second round (39th overall). He returned to the West Coast with the intention of watching the telecast of the draft with his family.

Stefen Wisniewski is 19 years old, as thick as the Hulk and as mild as a breeze. He doesn't drink, doesn't curse and spends his nights laboring over textbooks. On Sundays, you'll find him in church, head bowed in prayer, heart filled with scripture. Thursday, you'll find him playing offensive guard at the Rose Bowl, crashing his 6-foot-3, 294-pound body against USC defenders. It's all part of the family business.

Times NFL writer Sam Farmer looks at the bold (and potentially backward) draft decisions of each NFL team: Arizona Heady move: Cardinals got cornerback Patrick Peterson with the fifth pick. When they had the fifth pick four years ago, they let a guy with the same last name -- running back Adrian Peterson -- slip past in favor of tackle Levi Brown. Oops. Head scratcher: Took Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams in the second round. Cardinals used a first-round pick on Beanie Wells only two years ago, plus they already have Tim Hightower and LaRod Stephens-Howling.
