Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

USC coach Andy Enfield says that the Trojans "have a full roster of players right now" but wouldn't comment much on the ongoing FBI investigation that involves assistant coach Tony Bland, who is accused of accepting $13,000 in bribe money. “I found out when everybody else did, but other than that, I can't comment on the investigation – it's ongoing," Enfield said. "Tony Bland has been with us four and a half years. He's part of our USC program, our USC family, and we all love Tony. It's very difficult on a personal level, it's very difficult on a program level because we all had great relationships with each other. When someone leaves your family, it's very hard on all of us, it's very emotional and challenging.”

USC took advantage of four interceptions by Cal QB Ross Bowers - boy, did he float 'em out there - and scored 17 points in the first four minutes of the fourth quarter, lifting the fifth-ranked Trojans to a 30-20 victory over Cal today. The game was tied at 13-13 after three quarters.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

How would USC combat not having its top running back, No. 2 receiver and No. 2 linebacker? Force 6 turnovers (and counting). Clancy Pendergast's group has tormented Ross Bowers (4 interceptions) and the Cal offense today. After a shaky start against Western Michigan, USC's defense has really buckled down the past two weeks.
