LOS ANGELES -- Here's a rundown on the Rose Bowl stories in this morning's paper:
-- Rey Maualuga has overcome a rocky childhood and the death of his father to become one of the best defensive players in the country.
-- Penn State players have been constantly quizzed about their impressions of Los Angeles since their arrival last week. We asked some USC players who had never been to State College what they imagine Happy Valley would be like.
-- The quiet man, Paul Cianciolo, spoke up about this increased role as the backup quarterback now that Pat Devlin is gone.
