Trojans looking to take care of "unfinished business."
2013: Now healthy after missing 2012 with a knee injury, Madden will battle to start at tailback as a sophomore in 2013. He sat out 2013 spring drills while recuperating from the 2012 knee injury.
2012: Madden, who was switched from linebacker to tailback in 2012 spring practice and looked impressive, was on track to be a key contributor as a sophomore in 2012 before a torn left knee ligament sidelined him for the 2012 season and allowed him to redshirt.
2011: Madden served as a backup strongside linebacker and played on special teams as a freshman in 2011, his first year at USC. Overall in 2011 while appearing in all 12 games (he started at strongside linebacker at Colorado), he had 15 tackles, including 1 for a loss.
