PASSING: Stephen Garcia has been very accurate this year, completing 72.3% of his passes for 944 yards.  His TD:INT ratio is 8:3, and two of those picks came off of balls that hit A1 in the hands.

INTERCEPTIONS: Though we haven't had as many drops as years gone by, I'd still like to see this number increase: 3 INTs for USC and 6 INTs for the opposition.  The first number, of course.
