Gateway to the League

The headline comes from a display on the top floor of the John McKay Center, which rotates through photos of Trojans in the NFL.  It is a fact not hyperbole.

The 44 Trojans on active NFL opening day rosters is more than any other college football program.  In truth, it is not even close.

USC is trailed by Miami (37) and LSU (36).  Cal is the only other Pac-12 program to make the top 10.

The NFL's official list does not include players on injured reserve like Terrell Thomas, Mike Patterson and Ronald Johnson or practice squad like Brandon Carswell and Allen Bradford.
