Adoree' Jackson looking for reasons to smile after first start for USC

Adoree' Jackson's deflection that led to a Leon McQuay III interception in the back of the endzone against Oregon State on Saturday brought jubilation to the majority of the 74,521 in attendance at the Coliseum.

The Bruins...

As Clippers return to court, Blake Griffin the center (well, forward) of attention

Notebook: Kings add player to roster, while Ducks still finalize theirs

I think it's safe to say Jeff Carter will make the team. Carter scored a hat trick in the Kings' 4-2 preseason win over the Ducks, Sunday night at the Honda Center, and it looks as though the line with him and the kids, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, is still clicking as much as it did in the postseason.  It wasn't too hard, he said, it was Toffoli and Pearson who...

USC's Su'a Cravens 'liking' new position after big game vs. Oregon State

Su'a Cravens may be the best sophomore safety in the country. On Saturday night he proved he's also one fine Sam linebacker. After some initial pushback -- Cravens was on record saying he "came to USC to play safety" -- the USC sophomore has come around to the idea of playing the Sam spot, citing wherever the team needs him to play, he'll play.

USC puts Boston behind them with blowout win over Oregon State

You knew it was USC's day when even the Hail Mary pass worked.
