USC players kept to tradition during their final on-campus practice Tuesday, swapping jerseys with teammates.
Junior receiver Nelson Agholor wore offensive lineman Khaliel Rodgers’ No. 62 – a jersey at least two sizes too large.
“It’s very big – he’s a big guy,” said the 190-pound Agholor, smiling. “I don’t fill it out.”
As large as Rodgers’ jersey looked on Agholor, the receiver’s No. 15 jersey looked equally snug on the 315-pound Rodgers.
“It’s kind of goofy but it’s fun,” Agholor said.
USC plays Nebraska on Saturday in the Holiday Bowl.
Agholor said the game could be a “springboard” to next season, though he did not say whether he would return for a final season of eligibility or declare for the NFL draft.
“I thought a little about it,” he said. “But I think the No. 1 thing is I need to focus on performing well this Saturday.”
