TEAMS: USC Trojans
A few months back, we heard rumblings that USC Athletics might be getting a couple of new mascots. Today, it was made official by the school.

USC RB Allen makes most of opportunity

Through the first five games of the season, Javorius "Buck" Allen carried the ball 14 times for 78 yards. In that sixth game, there was an emergence of sorts.
