COLLEGE FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : USC : Abrams May Kick Against Oregon State
Kicker Adam Abrams will be at Oregon State on Saturday, and a decision on his availability will be made at game time. He has sat out six games because of a torn thigh muscle. Walk-on freshman Adam Rendon has filled in for him. . . . Starting quarterback Brad Otton sat out a third consecutive practice Thursday, the result of a concussion last Saturday. Coach John Robinson had said Wednesday that Kyle Wachholtz will start and “probably play the whole game.”
Keyshawn Johnson, who has 70 catches, needs nine receptions to become the all-time Pacific 10 Conference single-season leader. Former Trojan Johnnie Morton shares the record at 78 with Stanford’s Brad Muster and Oregon State’s Dave Montagne.
By averaging 52.3 yards on three punts against Stanford on Saturday, John Stonehouse became the Pac-10 leader with a 43.7-yard average. He ranks seventh in the nation.
