USC receiver De'Von Flournoy had only one career catch going into last week's game against Boston College.

The fifth-year senior doubled that with two key receptions in the Trojans' 35-7 victory.

Flournoy caught a nine-yard pass from Cody Kessler in the first quarter to help set up the Trojans' first touchdown. He also caught a 13-yard pass from Max Wittek in the fourth quarter to set up a touchdown.

All-American Marqise Lee said Flournoy has been a leader for the receiving corps.

"D-Flo knows the playbook from left to right to the back of his hand," Lee said. "At this point now, he's doing what he's supposed to do."

Flournoy's role could expand Saturday against Utah State.

Freshman receiver Darreus Rogers suffered an apparent ankle injury against Boston College and was on crutches early this week.
