Coach Carroll respects the Husker Nation, stating “I’ve never been there for a game. Visited before, but never been there for a game. I know just historically it’s an extraordinary crowd. They’ve got a great following. It’s going to be a fantastic challenge for our young guys to handle it, deal with it well, perform like they’re capable.”

Quarterback John David Booty remains a Heisman favorite. The Trojans might go to a shotgun formation, a favorite of quarterback John David Booty’s, in some situations against Nebraska.

Backup quarterback Mark Sanchez began taking snaps again after suffering a thumb injury. He will be ready if needed against Nebraska. Coach Pete Carroll commenting on the buy week before heading to Lincoln, said. “It’s such a big deal to play that first game and then you get a chance to regroup and get ready again.”

Joe McKnight is scheduled to wear a brace on his injured right knee through next week. “The idea is to wean him off of the thing, and he doesn’t need it for the (Nebraska) game,” Carroll said. McKnight entered the Idaho game without the brace and had an amazing run. When coaches realized, they pulled him out and sent assistants into the locker room to get it.

Broderick Green attended practice for the first time since having surgery on his right foot.

Brian Cushing has recovered from his sprained ankle and is expected to play.


USC – 28

Nebraska – 10

  1. After a not so great year for Booty, I hope he does well at NFL camp to improve his rankking.
