Su’a Cravens intercepted a pass in his first game for USC in 2013.

The junior linebacker would like to conclude his college career with a victory and another signature play in Wednesday night’s Holiday Bowl against Wisconsin.

Cravens has announced that he would forgo his final season of eligibility and make himself available for the NFL draft.

“Getting a sack or a pick would be nice,” said Cravens, who has 5 ½ sacks and two interceptions this season.

“I got it tatted all over my body. No matter what happens after this, no matter how far along I play in my career, I’ll always be a Trojan.”

— Su’a Cravens

Cravens intercepted a pass in USC’s 45-42 victory over Nebraska in last year’s Holiday Bowl.

He has nine career interceptions and would like to get to 10.

“I didn’t get too many chances to get to 10 this year,” he said. “I should have had one against UCLA.”
