Titans Of Troy 9/30: Reboundin'

Su'a Cravens continues to rise, but another Trojan team is rising even faster... First, here are a few tidbits of USC football knowledge: USC is the only team in college football that has not given up a passing TD this season. Not withstanding, of course, the Stanford TD that was negated by a chop block. On Saturday, Sean Mannion was held to the lowest passing yardage in any game of his Beaver career, with 123 yards. USC accumulated 124 penalty yards Saturday night. USC has a 2-0 conference record for the first time since 2007. USC is 3-1 this season. The team that defeated...

USC WR Ajene Harris Strains Hamstring

USC freshman Ajene Harris had a breakout game for the Trojans on Saturday. After being a standout in Fall Camp, Harris had barely seen the field in USC's first three games, but he saw his first significant playing time against Oregon State. Harris made the most of it with three catches for 30 yards, including a big 21-yard grab on third down to keep alive a USC drive that eventually ended in a touchdown. But on Wednesday, Harris missed the majority of practice and USC head coach Steve Sarkisian announced that Harris had strained his hamstring. The severity of the injury isn't known, but...

Aundrey Walker and USC O-Line Get Measure of Redemption

Finally. Aundrey Walker walked out of the USC locker room Saturday night with a big smile stretching across his face. Nearly 10 months after he left the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum field on the back of a cart, the senior offensive lineman was finally back on the field competing with his USC family. "It felt good. I felt very happy out there just to play for the team, play for my brothers," Walker said after the Trojans' 35-10 thumping of Oregon State. "It feels good to score and it feels good to win a game." It was a good night for not just Walker, but the entire offensive line. Following...

Trojans Drop in National Championship & Heisman Odds

Despite win, Vegas odds slip for USC. Despite the Trojans' 35-10 victory over Oregon State on Saturday, USC saw its odds to win the national championship dip this week. After having 25/1 odds to win the title last week, USC's odds dropped to 33/1. Oregon rose from 9/1 to 8/1 while UCLA jumped from 16/1 to 12/1. Stanford hung at 40/1 while Arizona State, previously at 100/1, was taken off the board. But that wasn't the only place the Trojans saw their odds slip. USC offensive stars Cody Kessler and Buck Allen both saw their Heisman Trophy odds fall in Vegas as well. Kessler had been at 50/1...

USC Falls Behind Early In Crosstown Cup

Thanks to defeats in water polo and volleyball, it's Bruins 2, Trojans 0. Though the UCLA Bruins established themselves as colossal hypocrites this week, credit has to be given to them when it is due. This was a very good week for Westwood. Not only did their football team finally validate their contender status, but the Bruins also won the first two matches in the Crosstown Cup against the Trojans. First, the USC and UCLA water polo teams competed in the semifinals of the NorCal Tournament. Like many games between the rivals in recent years, the match was tied heading into the fourth...

Jason Derulo To Perform at Halftime of USC/Oregon State

Multi-platinum recording artist will perform with the Spirit of Troy On Tuesday, we teased and talked dirty about the possibility that there might be a celebrity appearance during the USC/Oregon State's halftime performance. The Spirit of Troy marching band initially tweeted that r&b/pop star Jason Derulo had stopped by to rehearse with the band, but quickly changed that tweet and wiggle wiggled its way to a tweet that said Derulo had just stopped by the marching band's practice. But whatcha say? On Friday afternoon, the USC Spirit of Troy Marching Band published a press release on its...

Joe McKnight Tears Achilles in Chiefs Practice

Former Trojan running back is likely out for year. Joe McKnight was finally back. He was coming off one of his best games in his NFL career, catching eight passes for 64 yards and his first two offensive touchdowns in Kansas City's 34-15 win over Miami. But McKnight's season is likely over and his career in jeopardy after he ruptured his Achilles tendon in practice Friday. McKnight was supposed to be the heir apparent to Reggie Bush at USC as the No. 1 running back prospect in the country, but while he showed glimpses of brilliance, McKnight never came close to the impact that Bush had as...

Time for an in-depth look at the Oregon State Beavers. With the Oregon State Beavers coming into town this weekend, we chatted with our orange and black SBNation brethren over at Building the Dam.
