Havili Has Chance at Fullback
After starting freshman tailbacks in each of its first two games, USC could add a freshman fullback to the mix for the Pacific 10 Conference opener at Arizona.
Coach Pete Carroll said Sunday that Stanley Havili would be given a chance to take the place of senior Ryan Powdrell, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the Trojans' victory over Nebraska. Powdrell had surgery Sunday.
Havili, 6 feet 1 and 220 pounds, played against Arkansas and Nebraska but has not carried the ball or caught a pass. He will receive an extended look with the first-unit offense during practice this week.
"We're just going to throw him to the front, let's go," Carroll said. "It's a Taylor Mays-type of move."
