A fairly uneventful practice today. Backup quarterback Matt Fink (pictured) missed practice with a sprained knee. But he is expected to be available for the UCLA game. Walk-on Holden Thomas got a lot of reps while Jack Sears apparently focused on the scout team.
If Sam Darnold were to get hurt, and Fink were unable to play, Jalen Greene could always be the QB if USC did not want to burn Sears’ redshirt year.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Kenny Bigelow is transferring to another school for a sixth year of eligibility. That means the “story” about how he “retired” a few weeks ago was just a cover.
