USC faces a strong passing attack Saturday at Arizona State. And receiver Jaelen Strong is the focus. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Strong caught 12 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown last week in the Sun Devils' 42-28 loss at Stanford. Strong, a Philadelphia native who transfered to Arizona State from Pierce College in Woodland Hills, has a team-best 24 receptions, two for touchdowns. Strong presents a match-up issue for the Trojans. “We're going to have to play really well, be really aggressive with him at the line of scrimmage and take him out of his game,” USC Coach Lane Kiffin said.

Nonetheless, meteorology professors had canvas canopies on hand just in case the skies opened up before the speechmaking was over.

In all, school operators have managed to get 36 of the green signs placed along a seven-mile stretch of the Ventura Freeway in Tarzana and Woodland Hills.
