USC football has a talented trio of featured running backs this season led by Buck Allen and Tre Madden (pictured), who were both on the Doak Walker Preseason Watch List released today.  Sophomore Justin Davis, who averaged 6.81 yards per carry last season, could easily join Allen and Madden in any awards discussion.

Allen (134 carries for 774 yards) and Madden (138 carries for 703 yards) posted similar numbers last season, although Buck found the end zone 14 times to Tre's three rushing touchdowns in 2013.  Davis was second on the team in rush TDs with six as a freshman as he carried the ball 53 times for 361 yards.

Fullback Soma Vainuku actually led the Trojans in yards per carry last season at 9.75 per hand-off, while USC will also be boosted by the return to health of veteran D.J. Morgan.
