Senior Bowl 2013: Matt Barkley Leads 4 USC Trojans On Watch List

The USC Trojans football team saw four of their players, including Heisman Trophy Candidate Matt Barkley, named to the 2013 Senior Bowl watch list on Thursday. Khaled Holmes, Wes Horton, and T.J. McDonald join Barkley on the first ever official watch list for the game.

Barkley has also been named to the Davey O'Brien, Manning, and Maxwell Award watch lists for the 2012 season. He chose to forego the NFL Draft and return for his senior year after throwing for 3,528 yards and 39 touchdowns as a junior.

The Senior Bowl picks the top 100 seniors each year to compete in a postseason game that allows them to showcase their skills for professional scouts against the best competition in the country. This year's event will take place Jan. 26 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.

USC Trojans Football Scrimmage: Defense Shines In Final Tune-Up

The USC Trojans defense looked dominant in their final dress rehearsal of the preseason Sunday, forcing five turnovers in an intrasquad scrimmage.

Linebacker Luke Scott had two of the four interceptions with safety T.J. McDonald and DT George Uko picking off one each. Defensive tackle Antwaun Woods also recovered a fumble on the first play of the scrimmage.

But for as ready as the defense looked to go, the offense was that much out of sync. Quarterback Matt Barkley only completed eight of his 19 pass attempts while managing just one touchdown drive (25-yard pass to fullback Soma Vainuku). Both Barkley and backup Max Wittek also had two interceptions each.

Penn State transfer Silas Redd rushed for 59 yards on nine carries but did lose a fumble on his first attempt. Tailback D.J. Morgan scored the offense's only other touchdown of the day on a 20-yard run (31 yards overall).

The number one ranked Trojans kick off their season on September 1 at home against Hawaii.

USC Football: No. 1 Left Tackle Aundrey Walker Returns To Practice

The USC Trojans held a fast-paced walk-through practice on Thursday, with left tackle Aundrey Walker returning to the field and getting some work with the first unit.

The Trojans have apparently named their punt returner, or says defensive back Nickell Robey, who believes it will be him. Receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods will handle kickoff returns. Robey is also at the top of the depth chart at one cornerback position.

Starting linebacker Hayes Pullard also returned to fall camp practice. More details available on the official Trojans' blog.

Do yourself a favor, Pac-12 fans, and scroll down further in this blog. You'll see a photo of Olympic track relay silver medalist Bryshon Nellum, who was back on campus Thursday to do some interviews. And if you are a longtime Washington Huskies fan, you will probably cringe at the sight of a familiar face in another previous blog entry.
