No decision yet at running back

By Pedro Moura

Allen Bradford was great in Saturday's 32-21 win over Minnesota and Marc Tyler was not -- but USC coach Lane Kiffin hasn't made any decisions about who will start this weekend's game against Washington State.

Bradford, long the projected starter at running back only to lose his spot to Tyler at the end of fall camp, actually had the first carry of the game against the Gophers and lost a yard, but he came on for good when Tyler fumbled the ball midway through the first quarter. From that point on, he outgained Tyler 132-27.

Of course, Tyler looked similarly great against Hawaii in the season opener, but the redshirt junior struggled some against Virginia and again Saturday.

Either player could still end up starting when the Trojans visit Pullman, Wash. on Saturday.

“It’s still early,” Kiffin said Sunday. “We don’t practice again until Tuesday. We’ve got a lot of time to think about it.”

Here a few other highlights from Kiffin's Sunday evening conference call with reporters:
