LOS ANGELES – Ed Orgeron has restored fun to the USC program over the last six weeks, and success has followed.

With four victories in five games under the interim coach who replaced Lane Kiffin, USC (7-3 overall, 4-2 Pac-12) has managed to stay in the Pac-12 South race during a season of upheaval and disappointment. And the Trojans are having a blast.

“How can you not have fun right now?” USC receiver Marqise Lee asked. “How can you not get excited when you get the chance to play a team like Stanford?”

No. 5 Stanford (8-1, 6-1) is two victories from hosting the Pac-12 title game for the second straight season.

Fight cancels CIAA title game

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A bathroom fight among players from Winston-Salem State and Virginia State during a Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship-game luncheon left the WSSU quarterback beaten and charges filed against a player from the other team.

The conference announced Saturday’s game has been canceled.

Rams QB Rudy Johnson was “viciously beaten” by members of the Virginia State team, Winston-Salem State Chancellor Donald Reaves said. Running back Lamont Britt, 22, of Virginia State has been charged with misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury.

“There is no excuse for the behavior of the Virginia State players,” Reaves said.
