Three days until the next Pac-10 bowl game. Be strong.
It appears USC won't have fullback Stanley Havili or safety Kevin Ellison for the Rose Bowl, which is two big hits. Here's a reason for quarterback Mark Sanchez to return for his senior season. Know how USC has, at times, struggled against mobile quarterbacks? Interesting tidbit from this story on Penn State:
With backup quarterback Pat Devlin's departure to Division I-AA Delaware earlier this month, [quarterback Daryll] Clark likely won't run as much against USC. If he were to be injured in the Rose Bowl, the Lions would be down to wide receiver Derrick Williams, who has taken direct snaps from the shotgun in the Wildcat formation, and Paul Cianciolo, who has played in just three games.
