For much of this year, the Brighton Place Apartments have been a modern ghost town, standing unfinished and unoccupied behind a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire in a blighted South Phoenix neighborhood. Work stopped last February with construction on the 80-unit, low-income housing project nearly finished. The project's developer, Future Facilities, Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to stave off foreclosure.

Three straight close victories have made an old man of Arizona State's rookie coach, John Cooper. The Sun Devils nearly lost a three-touchdown lead Saturday, but held on for a 21-16 victory over Washington State. "I aged 10 years during this one," Cooper said. "It would have been nice if we could have scored some more points early, but we missed some chances because of turnovers in the first half."

There has been an order of ascension in the tailback tradition at USC and freshmen are seldom, if ever, accorded No. 1 status. But there's a possibility that Aaron Emanuel, the highly regarded freshman from Quartz Hill High, could break tradition by becoming USC's starting tailback. USC coach Ted Tollner said Sunday night that he isn't sure of the order of rotation for his tailbacks. But he was emphatic that Emanuel has to play. So one question has been answered.

A freshman field- goal kicker with his mind on bass fishing and a senior running back preoccupied with thoughts of his recently deceased grandmother were the primary actors in a Holiday Bowl that had overtones of tragicomedy. Kendall Trainor, who relaxed by pretending he was on a quiet pond reeling in bass, kicked a 37-yard field goal with 21 seconds left to give Arkansas an 18-17 win over Arizona State before an announced crowd of 42,324 here Sunday night.

Arizona State had seven interceptions--including three by cornerback Anthony Parker and one by cornerback Jeff Joseph that he returned a school-record 93 yards for a touchdown--to take the wind out of California's otherwise productive offense and defeat the Bears, 30-8, Saturday at Berkeley. Arizona State Coach John Cooper cited Joseph's interception as a big one. "The interception just before the half really turned the game around," he said.

re is something about Sun Devil Stadium that brings out the worst in USC and, correspondingly, the best in Arizona State. It was evident again Saturday night before a near-capacity crowd of 70,710 as Arizona State trounced USC, 24-0, in the Pacific 10 opener for both schools. The Trojans did not look anything like a team that was favored to repeat as conference champion.
