Tuesday Injury Report: Adoree' Practices; Bowman, Pullard Sit

Tuesday Injury Report: Adoree' Practices; Bowman, Pullard Sit

Despite destroying Colorado 56-28 on Saturday, the USC Trojans still had worries entering this week's practice schedule -- injury worries. Several key players came out of the game nicked up even though the Trojans substituted heavily in the second half. One of the biggest concerns was acquiesced on Tuesday when freshman cornerback Adoree' Jackson practiced. Jackson did not play after the first couple of series of Saturday's game because he re-aggravated his hip flexor injury on the Trojans' opening kickoff return. The injury occurred when he tried to leap over a diving defender. "Coming...

USC vs. Washington State Football: Game Time & TV Information Announced

1:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks. On Monday, the Pac-12 announced the game times and TV network information for next weekend's conference matchups on Saturday, November 1. The Trojans' road trip to Washington State wasn't selected by FOX or ESPN with the Stanford/Oregon, Arizona/UCLA and Utah/Arizona State games also on the slate. Instead, the USC Trojans will take on the Cougars in an afternoon battle at 1:30 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks.

Vegas Not Impressed By Colorado Win; USC & Buck Allen Hold Steady

Despite resounding win, Vegas odds stay the same for USC. Despite USC's 56-28 easy win over Colorado on Saturday, Vegas was not necessarily impressed. The Trojans' odds to win the national championship stayed steady at 75/1. Following the Ducks throttling of rival Washington, Oregon rose from 14/1 to 15/2. UCLA won a tight game with Cal and saw its odds rise from 100/1 to 75/1 -- equal with USC. Despite controlling their own destiny in the Pac-12 South, the Arizona State Sun Devils still sit behind USC and UCLA in the national championship odds. They currently have 100/1 odds, along with...

Block U Q/A Preview: Ute Fans Now Have Their Wish In Ranked Showdown

Block U Q/A Preview: Ute Fans Now Have Their Wish In Ranked Showdown

We would like to thanks Shane Roberts for sharing his worthwhile insight. 1. The quarterback position has been back and forth to say the least, but coach Wittingham is going with Travis Wilson from the start. Should USC expect both QB's to play and what can Wilson do well against this defense? I'd expect to see both quarterbacks in some capacity, but unless Utah's offense is inept, Kendal Thompson will be put in for situational plays. Wilson is a sneaky good dual threat QB, but his main skill is slinging it around the yard. If Wilson gets the support from his receiving corps, then he will...

JuJu Smith Establishes Himself as USC's #2 Receiver

Smith is second on the team with 26 receptions and 350 yards. When was the last time USC had a true freshman wide receiver that made an immediate impact? The two names that come to mind: Robert Woods in 2010 and Marqise Lee in 2011. Both would have outstanding careers at USC as each broke several school records. Will JuJu Smith be the next to join the group? Seven games into his freshman season, Smith has already shown why he was one of the nation’s top recruits coming out of high school and he finally got his first collegiate touchdown on Saturday against Colorado. John "JuJu" Smith’s...

Marcus Martin Could Earn 49ers Starting Center Spot

San Francisco is without its starting center. The San Francisco 49ers didn't just lose the game at Denver. They also lost their starting center, Daniel Kilgore. Kilgore was carted off the field with a lower left leg injury in the Niners' 42-17 loss in Denver and it was revealed Monday during head coach Jim Harbaugh's afternoon press conference that Kilgore will undergo surgery and be placed on the season-ending Injured Reserve list. That revelation opens up the possibility of former USC Trojan center Marcus Martin taking over the position in Week 9 when the 49ers play the Rams November 2...

Cody Kessler Named Pac-12 Player of the Week After Record Day

Junior quarterback set a USC record with seven touchdown passes. Cody Kessler earned his third career Pac-12 Player of the Week award when he was named the conference's Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. The USC Trojans lit up Colorado for 56 points on eight touchdowns and the first seven of those came from the right arm of Kessler. The redshirt junior from Bakersfield, Calif. threw for 319 yards on 19-of-26 passing to go along with the seven touchdown throws despite not playing in the fourth quarter. Cody Kessler led the USC offense to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter, hitting Nelson...

Trojans Adjust On Offense While Outclassing The Buffs

A couple new play calls, a few great deep balls from Cody Kessler, and big turnovers from the defense put this game away early. This is what we expected, right? A multi-faceted offense that spreads the ball around and can attack from the ground or the air, and a defense that cleans up the rest while making some big plays of their own. Cody Kessler set the school record with seven touchdown passes, and that is very symbolic of the way USC’s day went as the Trojans routed Colorado 56-28 at the Coliseum Saturday. There isn’t much to complain about after a victory like that, so let’s go...

Hayes Pullard Nominated For Lott IMPACT Player of the Week Honors

The Trojans' defensive captain had one heck of a football game. Senior captain Hayes Pullard was all over the football field on Saturday, and his efforts were rewarded as the Trojans' second-straight honoree on the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week Honors joining Leonard Williams. Pullard finished the game with nine tackles, a USC Trojans team-high, and was key in slowing down the passing game of Sefo Liufau, who entered the game leading the 14th-ranked passing offense in the nation. While the biggest scare may have come during a first half defensive play trying to slow down a bubble screen to...

JuJu Smith and Steven Mitchell Featured in Week 8 Top Plays

USC freshmen wide receivers JuJu Smith and Steven Mitchell were featured in the ESPN's top college football plays of Week 8 thanks to their diving catches on Saturday against Colorado. JuJu Smith, who finished with four catches, 104 yards and his first career touchdown, made a diving one-handed grab that made the Week 8 cut. After the game, USC head coach Steve Sarkisian revealed that Smith had been playing with a soft cast under his glove on the same hand that he made the catch with. Steven Mitchell's first career touchdown catch came on Cody Kessler 's school record seventh TD pass. That's...

USC at No. 20 in the AP Poll; Right Behind Next Foe, Utah

The Trojans gained two spots in the AP Poll. Thanks to the Trojans' 56-28 win over the Colorado Buffaloes Saturday night, USC moved up to No. 20 in the AP Top 25 Poll. They are joined by five other Pac-12 teams with crosstown rival UCLA re-entering the rankings at No. 25.

Cody Kessler Named Walter Camp National Player of Week

USC quarterback threw for a school-record seven touchdowns. Cody Kessler earned the first of possibly several awards this week when he was named the Walter Camp National FBS Player of the Week after his seven passing touchdowns. Kessler set the USC school record and tied the Pac-12 conference record. Of course, he was still a ways away from matching the national record set by Houston's David Klingler in 1990. Klingler threw for 11 touchdowns that day. On Saturday, USC redshirt junior Cody Kessler finished 19-for-26 for 319 yards. He found Nelson Agholor for three touchdowns, Bryce Dixon for...

Kessler Sets TD Record as Trojans Slay Buffaloes, 56-28

Kessler Sets TD Record as Trojans Slay Buffaloes, 56-28

Cody Kessler's seven touchdown passes did the job. Maybe it was the complaints about a lack of deep throws. Maybe it was the new shiny helmets that were unveiled. Or maybe it was just that USC was playing against a porous Colorado defense. Whatever the reasoning, Cody Kessler and the USC offense let it rip from the beginning, scoring 28 points in the first quarter on its way to a 56-28 blowout victory over the Colorado Buffaloes Saturday afternoon in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Kessler surpassed his predecessor, Matt Barkley, and all of the USC Trojan signal callers before him...

USC vs. Colorado: Game time, TV schedule, radio, odds and more

The Trojans try to stay atop the Pac-12 South. After a nail-biting, down-to-the-wire 28-26 victory over the Arizona Wildcats last week, the USC Trojans return home to play the Colorado Buffaloes during Homecoming weekend. USC is in a strong position in the Pac-12 South race, currently sitting atop the division with a potential separation game next weekend at Utah. But first, the Trojans have to deal with the Buffaloes and their high-speed attack. Colorado actually leads the nation in offensive plays per game. Led by quarterback Sefo Liafau and the receiving duo of Nelson Spruce and...
