USC Vs. Washington: Trojans Depth Chart Sees Little Change

As the USC Trojans prepare to play their conference home opener against the Washington Huskies, here is the Trojans' listed depth chart this week:

Offense

Quarterback: Matt Barkley, Mitch Mustain, Jesse Scroggins

Tailback: Allen Bradford and Marc Tyler are both listed as starters (with the dreaded "or" tag), with Dillon Baxter, C.J. Gable, and Curtis McNeal in reserve

Technically Tyler started the first three games and Bradford started the last game at tailback. Both will receive their share of carries, with a healthy dose of the freshman Baxter mixed in.

Fullback: Stanley Havili, Hunter Simmons

Wide Receiver (left side): Robert Woods, David Ausberry

Wide Receiver (right side): Ronald Johnson, Markeith Ambles, Brice Butler, Brandon Carswell

Tight End: Rhett Ellison, Jordan Cameron, Blake Ayles

Left Tackle: Matt Kalil, Kevin Graf

Left GuardButch Lewis, Zack Heberer

Center: Kristopher O'Dowd, Michael Reardon

Right Guard: Khaled Holmes, John Martinez

Right Tackle: Tyron Smith, Martin Coleman

Overall, this has been a very stable and unchanging lineup so far on offense, with the same 11 players starting each game, save for Allen Bradford at running back over Marc Tyler against Washington State

Defense

Left End: Wes Horton, Derek Simmons, James Boyd, Kevin Greene

Left Tackle: Armond Armstead, DeJohn Harris, Hebron Fangupo

Armstead started the first three games, moving between left defensive end and tackle. Harris has started three of the four games at left defensive tackle.

Right Tackle: Jurrell Casey, Hebron Fangupo

Right End: Nick Perry, Christian Thomas

Strong Side Linebacker: Michael Morgan, Ross Cumming

Middle Linebacker: Devon Kennard, Chris Galippo, Will Andrew

Weak Side Linebacker: Malcolm Smith, Shane Horton, Simione Vehikite

Left Cornerback: Shareece Wright, Brian Baucham, Tony Burnett

Strong Safety: Jawanza Starling, Demetrius Wright

Free Safety: T.J. McDonald, Marshall Jones

Right Cornerback: Nickell Robey, T.J. Bryant, Torin Harris, Daniel Harper

Specialists

Punter: Jacob Harfman, Mitch Mustain

Placekicker: Joe Houston, Jacob Harfman

Long Snapper: Chris Pousson, John Manoogian

Holder: Mitch Mustain, Robbie Boyer

This is an important spot, because USC has attempted eight two-point conversions out of their 21 touchdowns.

Kickoff Returner: C.J. Gable, Robert Woods, Ronald Johnson

Punt Returner: Ronald Johnson, Robert Woods, Nickell Robey

Saturday's game is at 5 p.m. PDT on ESPN2.
