They might have been Hogs

Today's LA Times:

After being relegated to USC's scout team this season, quarterback Mitch Mustain and wide receiver Damian Williams were intent on leaving an impression in their final Rose Bowl workouts.

On Sunday, the Arkansas transfers put on a show, displaying the connection that made them a formidable duo in high school and during their freshman seasons in the Southeastern Conference.

Mustain directed several scoring drives, and Williams made spectacular catches during an 84-play situational scrimmage that marked the end of the Trojans' second series of Rose Bowl practices.

"There's a chemistry there; it was exciting to see how obvious it was," Coach Pete Carroll said. "They've been playing together since they were little kids, and it showed today."

Mustain completed 10 of 16 passes for 162 yards and three touchdowns, all against a third-team defense made of up mainly of walk-ons and redshirts.

Williams caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown.
