9:25 a.m. Here they come, as on nearly every Saturday morning, dozens of cars and vans driven by cultural need and pride, streaming through the gates of the USC campus, to unload their precious cargo--the students of La Escuela Argentina de Los Angeles. They're here to pursue an academic program conducted entirely in Spanish by this unusual nonprofit organization, which is both recognized by the state of California and by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Argentina.

Michigan won two regular-season games against the Trojans, in 1957 and 1958. A look at each Rose Bowl game: JAN.

On New Year's Day 1990, the young men of the USC football team won the biggest game of their lives. Led by first-year quarterback Todd Marinovich, the Trojans fought their way past the University of Michigan Wolverines in the Rose Bowl. The score had been tied until the final two minutes, when Ricky Ervins, the diminutive tailback from Pasadena, ran in the final touchdown for a 17-10 victory and was named the Rose Bowl's most valuable player in his hometown.

Administrators of hospitals throughout the region have responded with anger and disbelief that USC might drop undergraduate nurses' training.

USC linebacker Rey Maualuga is a hitter not a hittee, so it's somewhat appropriate that the weight of this reality has not fully struck him: Life as he knows it is about to change. "I guess it really hasn't sunk in yet that tomorrow will be my last day as a college athlete," Maualuga said in a phone interview Thursday from his home in Eureka, Calif. "It's strange to think it's over." Over, and just beginning.

Rich Dimler, the rough-and-tumble New Jersey native who played nose guard for USC's 1978 national championship team, died Saturday of pancreatitis. He was 44. Dimler was the anchor of the Trojans' defensive line in the mid-1970s, big and bearded, his words thick with the accent of Bayonne, N.J. He was a four-year letter winner who served as co-captain of the championship team.

The result was a 62-13 victory over Duke.

The University of Southern California and the University of South Carolina share the same initials. But they won't be sharing a trademark logo. Not now that the administrative tribunal of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has ruled that the local USC has priority of use when it comes to the "SC" logo, including the interlocking version.
