Former USC running back Reggie Bush ready for opportunity with 49ers
By Associated Press/LA Times:

""It's amazing how time flies," Bush said after a practice in which he was easy to spot given his bright orange shoes. "I thought I was going to be young forever when I first came into the league. Now, 10 years later it feels like it flew by. Looking back on it, sometimes it still feels surreal that I've been in the league that long and played that long. But I still feel like I have a lot left to give.""

5 USC Football Records That Will Never Be Broken
From REIGN OF TROY:

"The Trojans hold NCAA records for consecutive BCS bowl appearances and wins, seven and six respectively. They set a record with 33 weeks as the No. 1 team in the AP rankings. They own the most appearances and victories in the Rose Bowl, with 32 games and 24 victories, a mark which is the highest of any team in a single bowl in history."

USC Trojans preview
by Kyle Bonagura, ESPN Staff Writer:

"USC has endured a very un-Trojan-like six-year stretch, reaching double-digit wins just twice since 2009. But Steve Sarkisian, with an army of skill players at his disposal, is steering the Trojans back toward Pac-12—and national—prominence. He just needs that other team from LA to get out of his way first."

by Alicia de Artola Reign of Troy:

15 for '15: Top Heisman Trophy candidates for 2015
by Mike Huguenin NFL.com:

"Remember that each of the past five winners -- and 13 of the past 15 -- have been quarterbacks; the only non-quarterbacks in that stretch were running backs Mark Ingram of Alabama in 2009 and Reggie Bush of USC in 2005. Still, we have more running backs than quarterbacks on our list."

DT Target Jordan Elliott Commits to Houston

USC, UCLA received about $21.3 million each from Pac-12 Conference
By GARY KLEIN, LA Times:

Despite challenges, Pac-12 Network clinging to independence
By KYLE GOON, The Salt Lake Tribune:

"Less than three years later, the Pac-12's from-scratch formula appears to mean the conference will be trailing the other power leagues it is constantly seeking to catch up to in viewership and in revenue. Scott — and the league at large — remains stoic and confident in what he started, but even he acknowledges the conference has a way to go to fulfill its initial promise."
