Kevon Seymour got his wish. USC's sophomore cornerback expected that Oregon State would target him during Friday night's game at Reser Stadium. “I want the opportunity,” Seymour said earlier in the week. “I'm like, 'Please go at me.' That's how I make a name. That's how I get better.” Seymour struggled at times, but he toughened as the game progressed and intercepted a pass by Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion in the fourth quarter to help preserve USC's 31-14 victory.

USC again switched Josh Shaw from safety to cornerback, and the move paid immediate dividends in the Trojans' 19-3 victory over Utah on Saturday at the Coliseum. Shaw's first-quarter interception of a pass thrown by Utah quarterback Travis Wilson set up the Trojans' only touchdown. Shaw, a junior, started the season opener at safety, moved to cornerback for four games and started the last two games at safety. Shaw said he felt confident at cornerback. "I told the coaches before the game, 'Don't worry about the right side," Shaw said.

Josh Shaw is on the move again. The junior is on track to start at cornerback for USC in Saturday's Pac-12 Conference game against Utah at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Shaw started the opener against Hawaii at safety, the next four games at cornerback and the last two at safety. "We've really struggled at the cornerback position," USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron said Wednesday. "When he was there, we weren't struggling, so we feel with some offenses he may have to play cornerback, some he may have to play safety.

When Servite was losing to Mater Dei last week in a Trinity League opener, cornerback Maurice Davison couldn't contribute because he was sidelined with an injury. He returned on Friday night to make two interceptions and help the Friars knock off Santa Margarita, 30-14, in an important Trinity League game. Davison continues to let everyone know he's one of the best at covering receivers. Eric.email@example.com

USC's embattled secondary will be reshuffled on Saturday against Notre Dame. Cornerback Anthony Brown, who missed the last five games because of a knee injury, said Wednesday that coaches told him he would start against the Fighting Irish. "It's a big game," he said. "I'm ready. " Brown, a fourth-year junior from Rialto, started the opener against Hawaii but hyperextended his left knee. The injury, he said, did not require surgery. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Brown had hoped to be ready for the Arizona game, but his return to practice was delayed until this week.
