Sept. 29, 2014
USC CREDIT UNION MEN'S STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Cravens' biggest contribution came early when he returned an interception for a touchdown to give the Trojans a 7-0 lead. With Oregon State looking to march down the field, the Beaver quarterback threw to his left looking to hit his receiver on a shallow out route. Cravens, initially playing towards the middle of the field, pursued the pass and jumped the route to pick off the ball and return it 31 yards for a touchdown. USC would go on to win 35-10 in dominating fashion. The Trojans next game will be home against Arizona State on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 4:30 p.m. PT.

With the Trojans leading 2-0 in the 83rd minute, Sladek received the ball in the Arizona zone, eluded defenders and ultimately rifled in a shot past the Wildcat goalkeeper to seal the win. Sladek and the Trojans return home on Friday, Oct. 3, to face Colorado at 3 p.m. PT.
The other USC women's student-athlete of the week nominee was Katerina Berdousi (soccer).
