Tailback Buck Allen said after practice he “doesn’t even know at this point” if he will turn pro or return to USC next season.
Meanwhile, tight end Bryce Dixon did not practice because a possible concussion against UCLA. WR Nelson Agholor said his dropped punt was from going away from fundamentals and he should have fair-catched it.
The Heisman Trophy is a two-man race between Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon according to Bovada. Meanwhile, UCLA is suddenly down to 25-1 to win the national title thanks to its win over USC.
“I want to win everything we’re doing. So whether it’s Notre Dame or UCLA or Cal or Stanford, they all mean the same. I know not everybody wants to hear that, but if you’re truly a competitor, I don’t pick and choose which games I’m going to get up for. I don’t pick and choose which games I’m going to prepare our players better for. I do it every single week and I will never waver off that.”
