Ryan Killeen was recruited by USC to boot kickoffs into the end zone, a job the sophomore transfer from Mt. San Antonio College is performing well through two games. On Tuesday, in the aftermath of kicker David Davis' troubles during a 40-3 victory last Saturday at Colorado, Killeen practiced with the field-goal unit. Davis, a senior, missed an extra-point attempt and had a field-goal and extra-point attempt blocked against the Buffaloes.

Something about having a week off agrees with Ryan Killeen. By his own admission, the USC kicker has endured a rough season, making only nine of 18 field-goal attempts. His best game, a three-for-three outing against California, followed a bye week. The same thing happened against Notre Dame on Saturday, the Trojans coming off a bye and Killeen making both his attempts. "I had a lot of time to prepare and get mentally strong," he said. "I had visions of knocking them through all week long."

Through tough times, a season in which kicker Ryan Killeen has suffered too many wide lefts and wide rights, his buddies on the USC football team have known just what to say. "I cuss him out every time he misses," defensive lineman Shaun Cody said. "But I also give him a hug when he makes them." This policy turned Saturday afternoon at the Rose Bowl into something of a lovefest as Killeen saved his best for last.

Ryan Killeen has made only one of four field-goal attempts this season, but USC's kicker said Monday that he remains confident. Killeen missed 43- and 49-yard attempts in top-ranked USC's 42-10 victory over Brigham Young. The Trojans open Pacific 10 Conference play on Saturday at Stanford. "I'm not worried about anything," said Killeen, a senior who made 19 of 24 field-goal attempts last season. "I missed a couple kicks, I can't take it back, I just have to move on. "There's 10 more games left.

USC kicker Ryan Killeen eagerly awaits his first opportunity to attempt a field goal today when the 10th-ranked Trojans play Arizona State in a Pacific 10 Conference game at Sun Devil Stadium.

USC kicker Ryan Killeen said Monday that he knew when he started warming up for last Saturday's game against Washington that he might be in for a long day. Killeen missed field-goal attempts from 35 and 20 yards and also had an extra-point blocked in the Trojans' 43-23 victory over the Huskies at Seattle. "I just wasn't there that day," Killeen said. "I didn't have a good warmup. It was one of those days where I either was going to hit or I wasn't."

Gary Klein's keys to the game, and how the Trojans measured up: 1. Stop the running game. After Oklahoma's first drive of the game, USC's defense controlled the line of scrimmage and contained Sooner running back Adrian Peterson. Oklahoma was forced to pass and USC intercepted quarterback Jason White three times. 2. Establish the run.

The Trojans have shown now, in two games, that they are vulnerable. Vulnerability may be an endearing quality for a movie star, but not for a football team that wants to receive a bowl bid. Robert H. Williams Monterey Park Let's set the record straight.... Do we really believe that Ryan Killeen's missed extra-point attempt and two missed field-goal attempts lost the game against Washington State. Well, quite frankly, yes! And please, don't get me started on the absolutely pathetic running game.
