Mayor-elect Jim Kenney met with Temple University officials Thursday and told them they must address the worries of neighbors before he can endorse the school's plan to build a football stadium on campus. "Temple asked for this meeting to explain the benefits of building their stadium," Kenney's spokeswoman, Lauren Hitt, said in a statement Thursday night. "The mayor-elect enjoyed meeting with the university's representatives, and he appreciated them working with the city on this issue.

THE STEELERS don't lose at home, and they absolutely don't lose at home to NFC teams. But nothing lasts forever, as Phillies fans found out this season. Some of the Pittsburgh defensive stalwarts aren't getting younger, quicker or healthier. Half a decade ago, the top teams in the AFC clearly were better than the top teams in the NFC. Not sure that's the case anymore. The Eagles' offense took an important step forward when it didn't turn the ball over against the Giants. Now it needs to solidify that gain, and add some efficiency to the formula, scoring touchdowns instead of field goals.

Heinz Field in Pittsburgh could be a winter wonderland by the time the New England Patriots and Steelers play their AFC championship game on Sunday night. That should make Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri very happy. Though Vinatieri is the man who kicked game-winning field goals in two of the last three Super Bowls, he might be better known in these parts for kicking an incredible 45-yarder in heavy snow against the Oakland Raiders in the playoffs three years ago. That kick sent the game into overtime, and New England won, fittingly, on another field goal by Vinatieri.

The Cincinnati Bengals yesterday said they had suspended offensive tackle Reggie Coleman for a week without pay for hitting fellow rookie Thatcher Szalay in practice on Friday. Szalay, a guard, needed dental work and will not travel with the team to Pittsburgh for today's game. Coleman has been on the inactive list for seven games since being signed Oct. 1 from the Washington Redskins practice squad. Szalay has been inactive for eight games this season. Steelers. Quarterback Tommy Maddox will dress for today's home game against the Bengals, a week after a spinal cord concussion left him temporarily paralyzed.

AGENDA : Who: Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers What: Second game of the preseason When: Tonight, 8 Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh TV: FOX29 Radio: WYSP (94.1-FM), WIP (610-AM), ESPN (97.3-FM) FIVE THINGS TO WATCH: 1. DeSean Jackson: Wideout makes his debut after about a week of camp. Wants a new deal before risking injury too extensively. Looked great at Lehigh. 2. Right tackle: This is a huge chance for a huge guy, King Dunlap, who seemed to be a bit of an afterthought until Ryan Harris' back started bothering him. 3. Kickoffs: Is that facet of the game really going to be as boring as it was last week?

To coach Bill Cowher, the Pittsburgh Steelers simply look right in white. The Steelers will buck years of tradition and wear their white away uniforms in the Super Bowl against Seattle, even though they are designated by the NFL as the home team and could wear their more imposing black jerseys. The black jerseys and gold pants are the Steelers' traditional look, and numerous sports teams have switched to black uniforms in recent years because they believe it creates a more intimidating presence.

Former Flyer Joffrey Lupul and Clarke MacArthur scored 4 minutes, 22 seconds apart in the third period as the Toronto Maple Leafs broke open a tie game and spoiled the New York Rangers' return to renovated Madison Square Garden with a 4-2 victory Thursday night.

Matthew Lombardi scored his first in the second period, and Mike Brown made it 4-1 in the third.

Y OU'RE NOT go to believe this. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney decided to name long snapper Jim Brown a captain for this week's game against Syracuse as a tribute to the great Orange running back with the same name. A nice gesture, no? Except none his players ever heard of the original Jim Brown, the Hall of Fame running back, who starred at 'Cuse from 1954-56. "One thing that's kind of funny, I've been waiting all year to name Jim Brown the captain for the Syracuse game," Swinney told Clemson reporters.

PITTSBURGH - The Steelers, like the gritty city they represent, aren't about the flash. The quarterback doesn't date starlets or supermodels. The wide receivers don't make headlines with guns in nightclubs. The coach doesn't try to run up the score or cast himself as some sort of genius. But when the Steelers meet the Arizona Cardinals on Feb. 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., it will be their seventh Super Bowl appearance. Only the Dallas Cowboys have taken more star turns on football's biggest stage.

If Big East football hasn't had enough drama lately (with all the reconstituting that's in play), more was added Saturday when the conference's two ranked teams stumbled. No. 21 Rutgers, which will leave the Big East for the Big Ten in two years, was pounded by host Pittsburgh, losing 27-6 at Heinz Field. And No. 19 Louisville, which has been rumored to be courted by other conferences, lost at home to Connecticut, 23-20, on a 30-yard field goal in the third overtime. The upsets will have little effect on the Big East championship, however, as Rutgers (9-2, 5-1 Big East)
