College Football Preview: 10. USC Trojans

USC Trojans Number Ten, Key Loss: Taylor Mays
The key for the Trojans in 2010 and 2011? Forgetting last year. The Trojans fell completely out of the top 25 and didn't play a bowl game in January for the first time sine 2001. Matt Barkley is more experienced now though and even if he has health problems, new coach Lane Kiffin has a solid backup in Aaron Corp. The running game is still strong even with the loss of Joe McKnight. It is led by returning starter Stanley Havili and C.J. Gable. The defense is a little bit more interesting. The front seven is loaded, only losing Everson Griffin, though the secondary, who lost Taylor Mays might need some help, as they have no returning starters.

Heisman Hopeful: Matt Barkley
Other Notable Players: C.J. Gable
Key Games: October 30 vs. Oregon Quick Pick: Even though the Ducks have no Jeremiah Masoli the ground game is strong and will challenge the Trojans defense. USC wins.
November 27 vs. Notre Dame Quick Pick: Mark your calenders. Even though the Irish lost Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate, new coach Brian Kelly will find a way for Notre Dame to win. Notre Dame wins.
