Hitting the High Notes
A B-2 stealth bomber did a flyover as the Trojan Marching Band played the national anthem before the Rose Bowl last Thursday in Pasadena. (This shot was taken from a single-engine Cessna T206 at 4,500 feet.) In front of a crowd of 93,293, USC defeated Penn State 38--24 (page 42).

Man Above Town
With the Tirolean Alps as a backdrop, Austrian ski jumper Markus Eggenhofer soared above Innsbruck, Austria, last Saturday in the third stage of the FIS Four Hills championship. He finished 28th.

Clear Reception
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's perfectly timed leap enabled him to make a 42-yard touchdown catch between Falcons defensive backs Lawyer Milloy (36) and Chris Houston (23)—a play that was captured from another angle on the jumbotron at University of Phoenix Stadium. Arizona kicked off the NFL's wild-card weekend (page 30) with a 30--24 victory last Saturday; Fitzgerald had six receptions for 101 yards.
