NEW YORK - Pete Carroll is one victory from joining an incredibly exclusive club - coaches who have won both a Super Bowl and a college football national championship. As it is, only Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer have done so. Carroll's USC teams won national championships at the end of the 2003 and '04 seasons. Louisiana State defeated Oklahoma in the 2003-04 Bowl Championship Series title game, but the Associated Press chose USC as No. 1 in its final season poll. USC beat Oklahoma for the 2004-05 BCS title but was later stripped by the NCAA.

A USC season already marked by several distracting controversies for Coach Lane Kiffin and school administrators added more intrigue Thursday. The Pac-12 Conference announced that it had fined USC's football program $25,000 because a student manager intentionally deflated footballs used by the Trojans during their 62-51 loss to the Oregon Ducks on Saturday at the Coliseum. Deflated footballs presumably can be easier to throw and catch. USC, in revealing the reprimand on its website Wednesday night, also had announced that the unidentified student manager had been relieved of all duties.
