Victor Blackwell steps up in Sunday session

USC had a full-pads practice with lots of special-teams work Sunday in their final workout before classes start on Monday.

Victor Blackwell had a good day as the wide receiver reserve group appears to be very balanced right now. Blackwell had a 35-yard grab from Matt Barkley and an 18-yard catch from Cody Kessler. Freshman cornerback Kevon Seymour also had a nice play to bat away a pass attempt to Blackwell.

Marqise Lee had a highlight play with a deep catch between two defenders.

Anthony Sarao had an interception off Barkley.

Morgan Breslin continued to get first-team reps at defensive end and coach Lane Kiffin praised his ability to make plays.

Kiffin said he will have more information on the status of the backup quarterback spot on Tuesday.

Kiffin will also work with the freshmen this week on how to stay composed when playing in front of a big crowd at the Coliseum.
