After cutting toward the near side of the field, USC running back Stafon Johnson appeared to run toward the 7,000 fans sitting in Galen Center. Then he quickly switched directions and glided into the end zone for what would be the winning touchdown Saturday in the Trojans' 18-15 victory against Ohio State. It wasn't just the Buckeyes' defense that was deceived. Johnson's shiftiness appeared to leap out of the 40-by-22-foot screen in the middle of Galen Center, and served as the most memorable example of ESPN's first 3-D broadcast providing an in-game atmosphere for fans.

The biggest winner coming out of college football's national signing day Wednesday had to be Thursday, the day it would finally be over. Hats off to anyone who survived it — and hats on to every player who couldn't decide which one to put on his head. The experts tell us Alabama won the day, or Texas, followed by Florida State or maybe Florida. Or was it Texas first, followed by Alabama and then Ohio State? Actually, the school that best captures the premise of signing day is: Slippery Rock.

According to the Nielsen television ratings from last week's NFL and college football broadcasts, no one has to ask, "Are you ready for some football?" Yes, yes you are. According to those ratings, the Fox 1 p.m. games last weekend (Giants-Redskins, St. Louis-Seattle and San Francisco-Arizona) had 25.1 million viewers. That made it the most-watched opening Sunday NFL telecast since 1987. That's a long time in TV years. And it's not only pro football that drew you in last weekend.

Pac-12 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott's big year begins Monday as he watches two of his teams, Oregon and Stanford, perform in lucrative Bowl Championship Series games at Pasadena and Glendale, Ariz. In the fall, the conference's marquee program, USC, emerges from its two-year NCAA bowl ban with a Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback in Matt Barkley and national-title aspirations certain to draw crowds and boost television ratings for the new Pac-12 network. New coaches at UCLA, Arizona and Washington State enhance the depth.

Regarding the shortened USC-Ohio State game, Ohio State nose guard Greg Smith said: "I play for 60 minutes. Playing 58 minutes, that's not right." Wow! A real, complete 60-minute player. He should win all the lineman awards hands down. VAL RODRIGUEZ, Signal Hill

What a day -- and then USC played at Ohio State. What a day -- unless you had one of those new-fangled "motion" cameras and got chased off the field Saturday by Penn State Coach Joe Paterno. For conveying information, Joe wished people still used Pony Express. What a day -- unless you were Lou Holtz and picked Notre Dame to go undefeated, or a former USC coach who is now coaching at Tennessee. Don't worry Pete, we'll take care of Neuheisel and Chow and UCLA, you go get them in Columbus -- your friends in coaching: Lane Kiffin, Monte Kiffin, Ed Orgeron.

Chey Asimus was in a party mood as she and others in the Orange County Trojan Club gathered outside a Tustin restaurant Tuesday morning to board a charter bus for the USC-Ohio State game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. "I never went to SC, but I've been a die-hard SC fan since I moved out here in '72," said Asimus, who sported both a USC Trojans cowboy hat and sweatshirt. "I'm originally from Ohio. I'm a Buckeye!" the Irvine resident added, laughing hilariously.

Offense The line has improved over the course of training camp but remains the Trojans' biggest question mark. Center Kris O'Dowd, guard Zack Heberer and tackles Charles Brown and Butch Lewis all have made spot starts, but only Jeff Byers has started an entire season. The unit needs to mature quickly with Ohio State rolling into the Coliseum on Sept. 13. Quarterback Mark Sanchez has rebounded from a knee injury and appears on track to start the opener in front of a tailback rotation that will include Joe McKnight, Stafon Johnson, C.J. Gable and Allen Bradford.

"The Blob" is a 1958 horror film about a giant amoeba-like alien that terrorizes a small community in Pennsylvania. "The Ohio State University" has a football team that slimed its way into the last two national title games in Arizona and Louisiana and now threatens to terrorize a college football community at this year's title game in Florida. Trailer caption: "Run for your lives!" Hold it, didn't a village mob with torches run Ohio State out of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sept. 13?

ESPN is expected to announce today that the Sept. 12 USC at Ohio State football game will have a limited showing in 3-D. The 3-D version will be available at the Galen Center in Los Angeles and the ESPN Zone at LA Live as well as at a single theater in Columbus, Ohio; Hartford, Conn. (for ESPN invitees) and Hurst, Texas. The Texas site, according to Anthony Bailey, ESPN's vice president for emerging technology, was chosen because ESPN would like to see how a 3-D broadcast would do in a place unaffiliated with either team playing.

USC Coach Henry Bibby suspended three starters, including his top two scorers, lost another starter to injury, and then threw the Trojans' hopes Saturday against Ohio State to a group of mostly anonymous players. And it worked. Because the Buckeyes played that badly, and USC more like a team than it had in six previous games, the Trojans turned what could have been a miserable experience into a positive one, defeating Ohio State, 79-68, and shocking 3,497 at the Sports Arena.
