Here's what's happening as the football Trojans are just hours from take-off...
- ESPN's Ted Miller ranked the Pac-10's Heisman candidates. He placed Matt Barkley at #6 and Ronald Johnson at #10.
- Speaking of the Heisman, 2009 winner Alabama RB Mark Ingram underwent knee surgery and will likely miss a few games, so the door is wide open for a new player to strike the pose.
- USC's offensive line is coming together just in time, says Gary Klein.
- A cohesive line is good news for RB Allen Bradford, who was profiled by the Daily Trojan.
- Also, UCLA QB Kevin Prince is expected to start against Kansas State after battling a back injury throughout camp.
- USC women's volleyball star Kendall Bateman shined in the sweep of the Trojan Invitational.
- Also this past weekend, women's volley coach Mick Haley earned his 1,000th career win.
