USC head coach Steve Sarkisian, QB Cody Kessler and DL Leonard Williams enjoyed themselves at Pac-12 Media Day today at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. 

The Trojans morning mostly featured hopping from tent-to-tent and reporter-to-reporter answering question-after-question about the upcoming season and everything else under the sun.  But, they had some fun too including a competitive game of "corn hole" and dressing up for a selfie.

Here are the photos courtesy of Pierson Clair:

Easy Being Green

USC baseball alum Grant Green delivered the first walk-off hit of his young career for the Angels ending a dramatic Sunday in Anaheim. 

Click here for his post-game interview and Gatorade bath.

Green, who serves a utility role for Mike Scioscia, started at his natural shortstop position for the first time in the major leagues.  He saved the game ball from his first recorded out at shortstop, and then presumably from his game-winning single up the middle.
