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

Punter: Jacob Harfman, Mitch Mustain
