HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO FIT THAT IN THE STANDINGS?: Baseball's Angels have a new name: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The change is intended to help the team market itself better in Southern California. But Anaheim will file a lawsuit to block the name change and hopes to obtain a temporary restraining order this week, city spokesman John Nicoletti said. City officials believe the change violates the terms of the team's 33-year lease with the city. "It's geographically confusing and absurd," Nicoletti said. When the franchise began in 1961, it was the Los Angeles Angels. The team became the California Angels when it moved to Anaheim in 1966. In 1997, when it was owned by Disney, the franchise became the Anaheim Angels.

JUICE IN THE HOUSE: O.J. Simpson plans to root like crazy at the Orange Bowl. "I'll be in the stands cheering as loud as anybody for USC," Simpson said. "I can't wait. I always follow SC _ always have, always will." The Heisman Trophy-winning running back said he hasn't seen his alma mater play in person for about 10 years, though he has watched most of the games on TV. Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, did not allow him to say where he will sit.
