7:35 - Underway. USC receives. Trevor Morrow playing.
*** 7:01 Trevor Morrow is warming up for USC. Same with Miles Sanders of Woodland Hills.
*** One of the biggest questions with this game is who will not play because of injuries. Reportedly, Woodland Hills leading rusher Miles Sanders is game-time decision with sprained ankle. He has missed past few games.
Lanny Frattare and Bob Orkwis here doing game for MSA Sports. USC coach Jim Render gave Lanny a starting lineup with Mac Pope and Trevor Morrow in it. Pope hasn't played for a few weeks because of a knee injury. He is a fullback-defensive lineman. Morrow is the team's leading rusher and missed some of last week's game with a foot injury.
*** Who is responsible for this pregame CD here at Baldwin's stadium? Baldwin AD Vince Sortino? I'm liking it. Just heard U2's Beautiful Day and Van Halen's Right Now. Definitely good stuff.
