    USC vs. Notre Dame: Postgame Notes

    USC defeats Notre Dame, 49-14

    2004: The record-setting Killeen, a leading candidate for the Lou Groza Award, is one of the nation's top placekickers as a senior in 2004.

    2003: Killeen handled all placekicks and kickoffs for his season season as a junior in 2003. Overall in 2003, he hit 19-of-24 field goals and 65-of-67 PATs, and also made 2 tackles. He was 1 of 20 semifinalists for the 2003 Lou Groza Award. He was named to the 2003 All-Pac-10 honorable mention squad. He was 12th nationally in scoring (9.4, second in Pac-10) and tied for 18th in field goals (1.5, third in Pac-10). Some 35 of his 99 kickoffs were touchbacks. His 65 PATs in 2003 was a Pac-10 season record (as were his 67 PAT attempts) and his 19 field goals tied the Trojan season mark. His 122 points in 2003 are the second-most ever at USC (behind the 138 scored by O.J. Simpson and Marcus Allen) and are a Pac-10 record for most points scored by kicking.

    At Auburn, he was perfect on his field goals (28, 42 and 35 yards) and both PATs, as well as having 2 touchbacks on 6 kickoffs. He hit all 5 of his PATs against BYU. He hit his only field goal (a 24-yarder) and all 8 of his PATs against Hawaii. At California, he hit all 4 of his PATs and nailed a 33-yard field goal with 16 seconds to play in regulation to force the game into overtime (but he missed a 29-yarder in the third overtime period). Then, he hit all 3 of his field goals (45, 28 and 38 yards) and all 4 of his PATs, as well as having 5 touchbacks on 8 kickoffs at Arizona State (he was named Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance). Against Stanford, he nailed all 3 of his field goals (20, 26 and 37 yards) for the second consecutive week and hit all 5 of his PATs (plus 4 of his 9 kickoffs were touchbacks). He hit all 6 of his PATs and a 29-yard field goal (plus 4 of his 8 kickoffs were touchbacks) at Notre Dame. At Washington, he hit 1-of-3 field goals (a 20-yarder) and 4-of-5 PATs (1 was blocked). Against Washington State, he hit both of his field goals (30 and 21 yards) and all 5 of his PATs while 5 of his 8 kickoffs pinned the Cougars within the 20 (with 2 touchbacks). At Arizona, he set USC's season PAT record when he connected on all 6 of his PATs (he also nailed his only field goal, a 36-yarder) and 6 of his 8 kickoffs were touchbacks. Against UCLA, Killeen made both of his field goals (38 and 32 yards) and 6-of-7 PATs (1 was blocked and returned for a 2-point defensive extra point) and 5 of his 9 kickoffs kept the Bruins within the 20. Against Oregon State, he hit a 29-yard field goal (giving him a share of the USC season field goal record), was 7-of-7 on PATs to set the Pac-10 season PAT mark and had 5 of his 9 kickoffs pin the Beavers within the 20 (with 3 touchbacks). He nailed all 4 of his PATs (he missed a field goal) and 3 of his 5 kickoffs were touchbacks against Michigan in the Rose Bowl.

    2002: Killeen came to USC to handle kickoffs as a sophomore junior college transfer in 2002, but he also took over the placekicking job during the third game of the season (at Kansas State) and did a commendable job in that role ever since. He led USC in scoring in 2002 (95 points). Overall in 2002 while appearing in all 13 games, he hit 16-of-23 field goals (with a long of 48 yards) and 47-of-49 PATs. He hit his last 30 PATs. He was 3 field goals and 2 PATs shy of the USC season records. No Trojan hit more field goals in a season since 1990 or more PATs since 1979. On 35 of his 89 kickoffs, opponents have been pinned within the 20-yard line, with 27 touchbacks. He also made 2 tackles.

    Against Auburn, he had 2 of his 5 kickoffs pin the Tigers within the 20-yard line, then 5 of his 7 kickoffs held Colorado within the 20 (with 4 touchbacks). At Kansas State, he replaced a struggling David Davis midway through the game and hit both of his PATs and also put all 3 of his kickoffs out of the end zone. He hit 3-of-4 field goals (43, 42 and 32 yards), including the first 2 tries of his career, plus added an extra point and saw 2 of his kickoffs pin Oregon State within the 20 to earn Pac-10 Special Teams Player of the Week notice. At Washington State, he missed a pair of field goals and 1 of his 4 PATs (however, 3 of his 5 kickoffs were touchbacks). He hit 3-of-4 field goals (34, 32 and 18 yards) and all 3 of his PATs (plus had a touchback among his 7 kickoffs) against California. Against Washington, he hit a pair of field goals (30 and 33 yards) and all 5 of his PATs, plus 4 of his 7 kickoffs were touchbacks. He was 5-of-6 on PATs and 1-of-2 on field goals (a career-long 48-yarder) at Oregon (1 of his 8 kickoffs were touchbacks). He hit all 7 of his PATs at Stanford and pinned the Cardinal within the 20 on 3 of his 8 kickoffs (with 2 touchbacks). Against Arizona State, he was perfect on his field goals (20 and 41 yards) and PATs (4-of-4) and pinned ASU within the 20 on 4 of his 7 kickoffs (with 3 touchbacks). At UCLA, he hit all 7 of his PATs and a 27-yard field goal, plus 3 of his 10 kickoffs kept them within the 20 (with 2 touchbacks). Against Notre Dame, he hit 3-of-4 field goals (22, 27 and 29 yards), all 5 of his PATs and 3 of his 9 kickoffs kept the Irish within the 20 (with 2 touchbacks). He hit 1-of-2 field goals (a 35-yarder) and all 5 of his PATs versus Iowa in the Orange Bowl.

    JUNIOR COLLEGE: He made 8-of-11 field goals and 27-of-30 PATs as a freshman placekicker in 2001 at Mt. San Antonio Junior College in Walnut (Calif.).

    HIGH SCHOOL: He earned 2000 Riverside Press-Enterprise All-Riverside County honorable mention notice at Norco (Calif.) High.
