USC football morning report

A recap of USC's first two weeks of spring practices, plus outstanding performances from USC's Pro Day.

Quote of the day: "We've seen [the defense] create turnovers, interceptions at a much better rate than a year ago at this time, and I think that's just being confident."

   -- Coach Steve Sarkisian after Saturday's practice. 

The Trojans' 14 interceptions last season ranked 29th out of 125 Football Bowl Subdivision teams.
