  11/26/22 - QB Kedon SlovisrSr/2024, Pittsburgh, 6-3, 215 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Kedon Slovis threw three touchdown passes, all to Jared Wayne, and Israel Abanikanda rushed for two touchdowns as Pittsburgh rolled past Miami 42-16 on Saturday night and eliminated the Hurricanes from bowl contention. Miami (5-7, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) matched its worst season in the last 45 years. Abanikanda now has 20 touchdown rushes this season and finished with 111 yards on the ground, his sixth consecutive 100-yard game for the Panthers (8-4, 5-3). Wayne had first-half TD catches for 26 and 66 yards as Pitt took a 28-0 lead into the break, then caught a 7-yarder late in the third. Wayne finished with a career-high 199 yards receiving, and it was the first multi-TD catch game of his career. It was Pitt's biggest win ever over Miami; the previous was a 17-point victory in 1976 - a year when the Panthers won the national title. Jake Garcia threw two touchdown passes for Miami; Xavier Restrepo caught one, and tight end Will Mallory also got one in his final game for the Hurricanes.

Pitt beat Miami for just the fourth time in the last 26 meetings between the teams, plus went 4-0 in November for a second consecutive season. It also grabbed a small sliver of history - the contest was the last Coastal Division game to be played, with the ACC abandoning the two-division format starting next season. It also was the 61st win for Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi, giving him outright possession of second on the Panthers' all-time list. He was tied with Pop Warner. For Miami, it was a terrible end to a terrible season. The Hurricanes used three quarterbacks Saturday, which was fitting, since they had a revolving door at that position all season. Starter Tyler Van Dyke was back for the opening series but reaggravated the shoulder injury that kept him out for much of the last month. Jacurri Brown left in the third quarter after getting hurt, and Garcia played the rest of the way. It was a season that began with such promise; Miami was the preseason pick to win the Coastal and started ranked No. 16 in the AP Top 25. But the Hurricanes lost their final five home games, making this the first season where that happened to Miami since 1963. Van Dyke finished the season 160-for-253 passing, for 1,835 yards with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. - Pittsburgh/AP College Football

  No one expected the metamorphosis of Pitt's passing game to be clean and efficient through only two games. After all, coach Pat Narduzzi replaced his top quarterback, wide receiver and playcaller - all in one offseason. Throw in injuries last Saturday to quarterbacks Kedon Slovis and Nick Patti, and perhaps it makes sense Pitt (1-1) struggled to score enough points, especially in the red zone, during the overtime loss to Tennessee. Pitt managed one touchdown in five trips inside the 20-yard line. That doesn't include a play that started at the 21 on which a Slovis pass into the end zone bounced off wide receiver Bub Means' hands and into those of Tennessee safety Trevon Flowers. - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

  Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi is taking blame for play that injured quarterback Kedon Slovis. There were only 21 seconds left in the first half Saturday when Kedon Slovis dropped back to pass from his 37, but it was enough time for a flood of events to occur that could impact Pitt beyond the loss to Tennessee. Sack, fumble, injury to Slovis, Tennessee recovery, field goal and a 24-17 halftime deficit for the Panthers, instead of 21-17. That's six results that didn't have to happen, but ended up negatively impacting Pitt's chance of winning a game that went into overtime. Narduzzi referred to the field goal as a "freebie." Asked why he didn't order Slovis to safely take a knee and run out the clock, Narduzzi was honest in the assessment of his decision. "I'm a (dummy), Jerry, yes. Thank you," he told the Tribune-Review. "Yeah. There's no doubt about it. "You go back and look, that's the one...That's why we kneeled down in the fourth quarter and take it to overtime. We weren't going to take any chances (at the end of the game) and make something crazy happen like that happened (in the first half). - Pittsburgh Tribune Review

  Kedon Slovis didn't transfer from USC to Pitt planning to sit on the bench. He won't. Head coach Pat Narduzzi named Slovis the starting quarterback on Wednesday, ending a months-long competition with Nick Patti for the right to replace Kenny Pickett, who is working next door with the Pittsburgh Steelers after a remarkable final season with the Panthers last fall. Narduzzi praised the way both Patti and Slovis approached their extended job interviews but called Slovis' accuracy the separator. "He's a really, really good passer," Narduzzi said. "We think he can lead us." Slovis, who threw for 58 touchdowns against 24 interceptions in three seasons with the Trojans before leaving last winter, won't get a chance to ease into the gig.

The 17th-ranked Panthers, who won the program's first ACC title in 2021, open at home against West Virginia in the renewal of the "Backyard Brawl" on Sept. 1. It will hardly be Slovis' first go-round in the crucible of a rivalry. He went 2-0 against UCLA and played well in losses to Notre Dame in 2019 and 2020. "I love playing in big games," he said. "I think every player loves playing in big games. You know, from your high school rival to college, I think everyone's favorite games are rivalry games. So yeah, you know, obviously you feel prepared, but more so I just feel excited." - AP College Football

  Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said nearly as much about his own injury Monday as he did about what may be ailing would-be starting quarterback Kedon Slovis. Some information was tossed around Twitter on Saturday, indicating Slovis had suffered an unspecified injury during a closed practice. Asked about it Monday morning before practice, Narduzzi suggested Slovis may have a suffered a muscle spasm. But first he offered an update on his knee. "My knee's a little sore," Narduzzi said. "I got hurt Saturday. We all got hurt Saturday. "I wouldn't say he got hurt. He'll probably be out (Monday) a little bit and probably be back (Tuesday). It's nothing significant."

After he reminded himself that Tuesday is the players' day off, he amended his forecast. "He would be full (Tuesday) if we did go. I don't know if you ever got a muscle spasm, but you're talking muscle spasm." Slovis transferred to Pitt from Southern California in the spring. In three seasons and 27 games at USC, he threw for 7,576 yards and 58 touchdowns, completing 652 of 953 passes. He was an All-Pac 12 first-team selection in 2020 (a six-game season because of covid interruptions). - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

  Pitt's football team appears to have dodged a bullet on Saturday. According to a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity, quarterback Kedon Slovis sustained a "minor" injury during a closed practice at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side. The source said there is no cause for concern and the injury is not expected to impact Slovis' chances of winning the starting job for the season opener vs. West Virginia on Sept. 1.

A 6-foot-3, 215-pound grad transfer, Slovis started 27 games over the last three seasons at USC, passing for 7,576 yards and 58 touchdowns with a 68.4% completion rate since winning the starting job as a freshman in 2019. His freshman season was his best, when he completed 71.9% of his passes for 3,502 yards, 30 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Slovis is locked in a heated competition with redshirt senior Nick Patti for the starting quarterback position, with coach Pat Narduzzi giving no indication of a timetable to announce the Panthers' starter. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  Any Pitt or West Virginia fan who hoped to catch a glimpse of this fall's Backyard Brawl at Acrisure Stadium but had not yet secured tickets better start making other plans. As of Friday morning, Pitt announced that all tickets to the highly anticipated season opener on Sept. 1 had sold out. Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi indicated to reporters on Friday that tickets sold out "about 15 minutes" after they became available. In response to the high demand, Pitt athletics began selling a limited number of standing-room only tickets at 10 a.m. Friday.

The SRO tickets were priced at $125 each, with sales limited to two tickets per customer. A Pitt spokesperson said the SRO tickets sold out in less than five minutes. "It just erupted, which we know - we kind of felt that was going to happen," Narduzzi said. Pitt already holds the record for most tickets sold for a game at Acrisure Stadium, with the 69,983 tickets sold for the Panthers' 42-39 win vs. Penn State on Sept. 10, 2016, outnumbering every Steelers game ever played at the stadium. Narduzzi said he hopes the renewal of another historic rivalry will be enough to rewrite the record book in terms of fan attendance - and possibly even surpass 70,000 fans for the first time ever. "We know we've got the largest crowd in Acrisure Stadium history, so we hope to break that record, too," Narduzzi said. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  When will Pitt coach PattNarduzzi name a starting QB? We all know college coaches don't like to give anything away, and Narduzzi's no exception. That brings us to Kenny Pickett's successor. You have to figure it's Kedon Slovis' job to lose after the former Pac-12 freshman of the year transferred in from USC. But Nick Patti won't make it easy on him, and Narduzzi will lean into the competition storyline as long as he can. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  Conference realignment killed many of the most storied rivalries in college football, but West Virginia and Pitt are scheduled to meet eight times over the next 11 seasons, starting Sept. 1 at Heinz Field. To commemorate the occasion, the schools put their heads together to create the official Backyard Brawl logo, released Thursday - 105 days before the 105th edition of the football rivalry. The game will be the first between the schools since 2011 and will be the season opener for both teams.

The logo features different variations that can include both teams, a football-only version, a school-specific logo and an option that can highlight a game sponsor. Fans will be able to purchase special merchandise, beginning in August, featuring the new logo. Apparel also will be available in future years. Pitt leads the series 61-40-3, but West Virginia has won 16 of the past 26 games, including a 21-20 victory in the most recent renewal in Morgantown, W.Va. - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

  Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi didn't mention the big news - Jordan Addison entering his name in the NCAA transfer portal - while speaking this week at the Peach Bowl Challenge, a charity golf event outside Atlanta. But when he was asked about Kedon Slovis, Narduzzi wasn't shy about discussing how his transfer quarterback found his way from USC to Pitt. "He's just a super kid," Narduzzi said on a video submitted to the news media by the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

"He wasn't looking for a payday. He was looking for the right place to be, with a great culture. He's a guy who actually went into the (NCAA transfer) portal the real way, the right way. "He had a lot of opportunities with name, image and likeness, but I think he was looking for the right fit. He was looking for the right personnel. We had a lot returning on offense." Narduzzi pointed out during the interview that Pitt lost only two starters on offense from 2021 - Kenny Pickett and Lucas Krull - without mentioning Addison, the Biletnikoff winner and All-American wide receiver who put his name in the portal. - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

  Kedon Slovis is trading USC for Pittsburgh. The former Trojans quarterback announced Tuesday he is heading east to join the ACC champion Panthers, where he will get a chance to replace ACC Player of the Year Kenny Pickett. "I'm feeling incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be a Panther — and I can't wait to prove myself again on this stage," Slovis said in a piece he wrote for The Players Tribune released Tuesday evening. Slovis entered his junior season at USC as a Heisman Trophy contender but he struggled to find any rhythm. He passed for 2,153 yards with 11 touchdowns against eight interceptions in nine games before being lost for the season with a leg injury.

Slovis joins a wide-open race to replace Pickett, who announced last week he will not play when the 13th-ranked Panthers (11-2) face No. 10 Michigan State (10-2) in the Peach Bowl next week. Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi has not said who will start in place of Pickett, though Nick Patti figures to get the nod as the primary backup. The Panthers also have Davis Beville and Arizona State transfer Joey Yellen, who joined Pitt in January 2020. Pitt is in the process of looking for a new offensive coordinator after Mark Whipple left for the same position at Nebraska. - AP College Football

  Kedon Slovis was an overlooked and underappreciated three-star prospect when, in September 2019, he was abruptly thrust into the spotlight as a true freshman, forced to take over in the season opener for injured JT Daniels. Expectations, at the time, were low. But for the better part of the next three seasons, as Slovis took hold of his opportunity and transformed into a two-time All-Pac-12 passer and potential NFL prospect, he never relinquished the reins as quarterback and guided USC during three tumultuous seasons. He was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year in his first season, led the Trojans to a Pac-12 title game during his second, pandemic-altered campaign and then helped usher them through an emotional coaching change as a junior, all the while watching his hold on the job slip away.

Slovis officially entered the NCAA transfer portal on Monday, a decision that seemed assured since the sudden arrival this fall of freshman quarterback Jaxson Dart. For Slovis, it marked a bittersweet conclusion to an uneven tenure as the Trojans' signal caller. He passed for 7,576 yards and 58 touchdowns during his three seasons at USC, totals that rank among the top seven in school history. Early on, it seemed Slovis was a diamond in the rough uncovered by USC and suddenly destined for stardom. But by the end of his final season, it had become clear USC was ready to move forward, and Slovis was ready to move on. Before the 2021 campaign, Slovis was still seen as a potential first-round NFL draft pick. His name was noted on preseason Heisman Trophy watch lists. But the season didn't go as planned, for either USC or its quarterback. - Los Angeles Times

  Kedon Slovis threw three touchdown passes and Southern California broke out of its doldrums Saturday with a 37-14 rout of free-falling Colorado. Slovis completed 19 of 29 throws for 276 yards and hit Drake London, Michael Trigg and Gary Bryant Jr. with scoring passes as the Trojans (3-2, 2-2 Pac-12) bounced back in a big way from their first home loss to Oregon State in 61 years by rolling over a Buffaloes team whose offense remains stuck in neutral. The Buffaloes (1-4, 0-2) fell to 0-15 against Southern Cal with their fourth consecutive loss since a win in their opener over lower-division Northern Colorado.

Brendon Lewis was held to 10-of-17 passing for 162 yards, was intercepted once and sacked five times. The Buffs converted just 1 of 10 third downs and failed on a fourth-down try. The Trojans gained just 2 yards on the game's opening possession but they made up for it by scoring on their next four drives to build a 20-0 cushion. A fumble at midfield by USC running back Keaontray Ingram gave the Buffs a big break just before halftime. Safety Mark Perry pounced on the loose ball at the Trojans 48, and that gave Colorado's sputtering offense its first foray in USC territory. Seven plays later, Deion Smith scored from a yard out to pull the Buffs to 20-7 at halftime. The Buffs got the ball coming out the break with hopes of making it a one-score game, but they turned it over on their first two drives, once on a strip sack and another time on downs, and the Trojans capitalized by expanding their lead to 30-7. And cornerback Joshua Jackson Jr.'s interception set up Bryant's 15-yard TD catch that made it 37-14 early in the fourth quarter. - Southern California/AP College Football

  As a sophomore, the USC starting quarterback saw some regression from his breakout freshman campaign. There were simple throws he failed to complete and his lack of rhythm allowed the Trojans to fall behind early in games. Slovis was able to lead several fourth-quarter comebacks to minimize the damage, but it was clear he wasn't himself. But at Pac-12 media day, Slovis was honest about what led to the down year: A lack of confidence in his throwing elbow after he injured it in the 2019 Holiday Bowl. Slovis says he's shaken those doubts off and wants to come back and be the best version of himself as a quarterback. There will be challenges, like new faces in the receiving corps and the departure of a first-round left tackle. But if Slovis is confident and not holding anything back, USC will be in better shape than it was a year ago. - Orange County Register

  To most observers, Kedon Slovis didn't appear to be himself last season. The sophomore quarterback was good enough to lead the Trojans to a 5-1 record and a Pac-12 South Division title while logging several stunning comeback wins. But after a freshman season in which the former three-star recruit established himself as one of the premier quarterbacks in the country, there was something missing in 2020. The football was wobbling out of his hand, and his was missing receivers on routine routes. "I never had an issue with accuracy my whole life, or throwing velocity," Slovis said Tuesday at Pac-12 Media Day, "and all of a sudden last year I'm looking at it like, 'What's going on with my arm?'" During the offseason, Slovis went back to video to evaluate what had happened to his arm. But the answer actually stems from his final play of the 2019 season.

Slovis' last act as a freshman was to leave the Holiday Bowl loss to Iowa early following an elbow injury. He avoided anything that required surgery or an extended off period and was ready to participate in the following spring practice before it was shut down by the pandemic. But despite being cleared by the medical staff, Slovis still didn't totally trust his arm by the time the 2020 season arrived. "I never got that confidence back of wanting to use that or was really conservative about using it," Slovis explained. "At times I was compensating for not wanting to use it or put strain or stress on the elbow. So I think that caused a lot of the issues that you guys saw." - Orange County Register

  As USC's star quarterback, Kedon Slovis is in a position to capitalize on the new landscape of name, image, and likeness, so he's seeking help on NIL from an agency well acquainted with marketing the biggest star athletes in Los Angeles. Slovis has signed a deal with Klutch Sports to represent him on all NIL matters, a person familiar with the deal but not authorized to speak on the matter told The Los Angeles Times. Slovis appears to be the first college football star to sign with the agency, which is most known for representing LeBron James, Anthony Davis and other major NBA stars.

The deal only became possible three weeks earlier on July 1, when the floodgates finally opened on NIL. A handful of other top college quarterbacks have also since signed with agencies to handle using their names and personal brands to make money. Former Santa Ana Mater Dei and current Alabama starting quarterback Bryce Young signed with CAA and, according to Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban, is already nearing seven figures in revenue off NIL deals. As his third and likely final season at USC approaches, Slovis could see a similar windfall. The Heisman Trophy contender has yet to announce any sponsorships or NIL deals, nor has he posted any advertisements on his social media channels. But a deal with Klutch Sports certainly suggests Slovis plans to at least explore his capacity to profit off his potential stardom. - Los Angeles Times

  It's from that realization that Slovis opens spring focused on finding his stride ahead of a third collegiate season that could be his last before the NFL comes calling. While Slovis still led the Pac-12 in passing yards (1,921) and touchdowns (17), his development was notably stunted by the circumstances of the pandemic. The shortened season ended on an especially difficult note, as Slovis had three passes intercepted in the Pac-12 title game against Oregon, the last of which ended with him sustaining a shoulder injury. That injury has since healed, and Slovis should have no limitations this spring. The pertinent question now is whether that confidence has returned. "Even though I felt good and I thought I got to a place [in 2020] that would be sustainable for football season, it wasn't really a place that I felt confident as a thrower," Slovis said. "I think more than anything, confidence is everything." So this offseason, Slovis set about rebuilding his own. After training with the same local coach since sixth grade, Slovis began working at the 3DQB training facility in Huntington Beach, where Tom Brady, Drew Brees and other top NFL quarterbacks have fine-tuned their mechanics. - Los Angeles Times

  Kedon Slovis threw an 8-yard touchdown to Amon-Ra St. Brown with 16 seconds left for his fifth passing TD of the game, and No. 16 Southern California rallied from an 18-point, third-quarter deficit to beat UCLA 43-38 on Saturday night. UCLA took a 38-36 lead with 52 seconds remaining on Nicholas Barr-Mira's 43-yard field goal, but USC (5-0) answered quickly. Gary Bryant returned the kickoff 63 yards to the Bruins 43, Slovis connected with Tyler Vaughns on a 35-yard reception and St. Brown caught his second TD of the game on the next play. Slovis completed 30 of 47 passes for 344 yards with two touchdowns each to St. Brown and Drake London. Vaughns caught eight passes for 110 yards and Vavae Malepeai ran for 110 yards in the 90th Crosstown Showdown. The Trojans clinched the Pac-12 South title earlier in the day when Utah beat Colorado. - USC/AP College Football

  Kedon Slovis was eager to get back on the football field after USC's victory over Utah three weekends ago. The Trojans had won, but Slovis wasn't fully satisfied with his performance. "Not my worst game in the world, but I felt like we left a lot out on the table as an offense," the sophomore quarterback said. "So I was really looking forward to that Colorado game." The Colorado game, however, was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak among USC's offensive line. So Slovis' return was delayed a week. But in the end, it didn't matter. Slovis put together his best performance of the season on Sunday night against Washington State.

He completed a season-high 78.1% of his passes for 287 yards and a career-high five touchdowns. "I think that carried over to this week," Slovis said after No. 16 USC's 38-13 win. "With our situation up front, we knew we were going to throw the ball and we knew the looks that we were going to get that we were going to throw the ball as well, so those opportunities kind of presented themselves." The performance was a good reminder of what USC's offense is capable of when its star quarterback is playing up to expectations. - Orange County Register

  Shawn Seaman has seen Kedon Slovis throw countless passes since taking him on as a budding sixth-grade quarterback. But when they started throwing sessions last spring, Seaman preferred to go slow with his star pupil's arm. Just three months earlier, Slovis had suffered an elbow injury from overtaxing that right arm; it was no exaggeration to suggest USC's season rested on its recovery. As they gathered at a park near the quarterback's home in Arizona, Slovis kept pushing it. His arm, he told Seaman, had never felt better. The coach could see for himself. Physically, Slovis had never looked bigger. There was an extra zip on his passes. "The ball was just popping out of his hand," Seaman said. So much so that the primary target of Slovis' passes - his father, Max - wore through a pair of receiver gloves.

Through three games of his sophomore season at USC, that extra pop hasn't always been palpable. Some passes have wobbled. Others have been off-target or thrown into danger, leading some to wonder if something isn't quite right with his arm. But Seaman, who works as an electrical engineer by day, is incredulous of any such suggestion. Slovis' elbow, Seaman says, is fine. So are his mechanics. And his confidence. And any other aspect of his game offered up as reasoning for a less-than-sharp start. Southern California linebacker Kana'i Mauga (26) reacts after making a tackle during the first half. "What I've seen looked pretty normal," Seaman said. "I didn't see anything that would make me concerned at all. I just think people have latched onto something, and it's much ado about nothing." It appears that way on paper. Slovis has completed 70.7% of his passes through three games, one percentage point behind his rate from last season but still good enough for sixth-best in the nation. Only seven quarterbacks are throwing for more yards per game than Slovis' 323.3. - Los Angeles Times

  The great Southern California teams were known for their confidence. On the road against Utah, these Trojans took another step toward restoring the program's past glory. "We played with a swagger tonight, especially on defense," coach Clay Helton said. Kedon Slovis threw for two touchdowns and No. 20 USC smothered Utah in a 33-17 victory Saturday. Slovis completed 24 of 35 passes for 264 yards for USC (3-0, 3-0 Pac-12), but the Trojans' defense took centerstage, forcing five turnovers to stay undefeated and move into pole position for the Pac-12 South title.

"All week, our guys talked about playing like this was a bar fight. We played with a lot of viciousness and everyone was zeroed in," linebacker Kana'I Mauga said. USC's game plan from the outset was to stop Utah's ground game. "At all costs, stop the run," Helton said. "Once we did that, our pass rush forced throws that were interceptions, got sacks and fumbles. We were in the backfield all night." Utah (0-1, 0-1) was the final major conference team to make its 2020 debut after coronavirus cases scuttled its first two scheduled games of an already-delayed season. - Southern California/AP College Football

  Vavae Malepeai bulled his way through multiple tacklers for an 8-yard touchdown run with 25 seconds left, and No. 20 Southern California beat Arizona 34-30 on Saturday with another late rally. USC (2-0, 2-0 Pac-12) was outplayed by Arizona State last week before scoring two touchdowns in the final three minutes to win 28-27. The Trojans again had two late scoring drives to win a game they were outplayed in for most of the afternoon.

Kevon Slovis hit Erik Krommenhoek on a 6-yard touchdown, but Arizona (0-1, 0-1) marched quickly down the field for a 6-yard touchdown pass from Grant Gunnell from Stanley Berryhill III with 1:20 left. Slovis, off target early, completed four straight passes for 68 yards and Malepeai capped the 75-yard drive by carrying several Arizona defenders with him into the end zone. Slovis threw for 325 yards and a touchdown on 30-of-43 passing. Gunnell threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns for Arizona, which played its first game in nearly a year after last week's opener against Utah was canceled due to the coronavirus. - AP College Football

  Kedon Slovis won't catch anybody by surprise the second time around at Southern California. And it's not just because the unassuming quarterback who took the Pac-12 by storm last year is a whole lot harder to miss now with his extra 15 pounds of muscle. "He went from a young man to a grown man in a year," USC coach Clay Helton said with a smile. Slovis is becoming more than the unheralded teenager who produced the best season by a freshman quarterback in USC's voluminous history last fall. When the No. 20 Trojans finally begin their regular season Saturday morning at the Coliseum against Arizona State, Slovis carries both the weight of his responsibilities and the heavy expectations that gather on this program's best players.

His enlarged frame makes the burden look lighter - and you'd never know it anyway from Slovis' perpetually cool demeanor. "We just want to give our guys the opportunity to make plays, and it starts with me," Slovis said. "That's really the most I can do at this point, and what I'm focused on." Slovis projects a calm belying his 18 years, but he spent the extra-long offseason lifting weights, eating well, poring over video and assuming a greater leadership role. All kinds of tangible growth has happened since his impressive debut season ended with an injury in the Trojans' loss to Iowa in the Holiday Bowl, according to the coaches most responsible for guiding his journey. - AP College Football

  Slovis was an unexpected surprise, earning Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year honors after stepping in for starter J.T Daniels who was injured in the season opener. Slovis, who graduated from Scottsdale Desert Mountain, threw for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns with nine interceptions and was so good that Daniels decided to hit the transfer portal rather than return to Troy. - Arizona Republic

  His elbow had finally healed. His arm was finally back to normal. But for USC's Kedon Slovis, normal would last all of one mid-March practice, before a pandemic intervened. The rising sophomore quarterback has been home in Arizona ever since spring practice was abruptly canceled, trying his best to maintain a shred of normalcy during a crucial offseason expected to propel him to prominence. Slovis still watches film with offensive coordinator Graham Harrell over Zoom. He still works out three days per week, doing what he can without access to a home gym.

He throws at a local park on the days in between, with his private coach, Shawn Seaman, at his side and his dad, Max, as his lone receiver. "It's not exactly an ideal situation," Slovis said. But as he anxiously awaits a return to his college football routine, Slovis resolved to spend at least part of his quarantine embracing the circumstances of a new world. So, last month, on his 19th birthday, Slovis bought an acoustic guitar. "I always wanted to play," he said. "With sports growing up, though, I never had a chance for lessons. I always kept it in my back pocket." - Los Angeles Times

  With college sports shuttered, his Trojans stuck in isolation and the status of next football season in flux because of COVID-19, Clay Helton is trying to focus on the silver linings. Late-afternoon walks with his wife, Angela. Extra time with their three kids. Beautiful sunsets from his balcony. The work of teachers everywhere. The wonders of the Zoom app. "Everything has a silver lining," the USC coach said. The panic over the upcoming season remains pervasive, as hard decisions on how to proceed post-pandemic approach in the coming months. Pac-12 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott said this week he hoped decisions on the season's start date might be made by May 31, when the conference's suspension of team activities is scheduled to expire.

Helton wouldn't speculate on the future of the season when reached by phone Friday. But while he considered what a return to college football normalcy might require, Helton did suggest that his team would probably need a "minimum of four weeks" of ramp-up before safely proceeding with camp in the fall. That ramp-up period, Helton said, has been a point of discussion on recent conference calls with Pac-12 coaches. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly suggested a similar timeline with reporters this week, while Scott mentioned the possibility of a "longer-than-normal" training camp "to somehow accommodate for the fact that we've missed spring." - Los Angeles Times

  The last two No. 1 quarterbacks at USC stood side by side, observing from behind the fray as the first deep balls of spring soared from the right arms of Matt Fink, the returning redshirt senior, and Brad Aoki, a 5-foot-8 converted quarterback wearing a yellow No. 36 jersey. As spring practice opened at USC, with no assurance it would continue on through next month due to the rapid spread of coronavirus, Kedon Slovis and JT Daniels, the two presumably vying for the starting job, both had injury questions of their own, on a roster short on other options.

For Slovis, any doubts were quelled just a few minutes later, as he rejoined USC's first team offense and laced several throws that reminded why he was named Pac-12 offensive freshman of the year. After injuring his elbow in the Holiday Bowl, there was some concern over how healthy he would be for the start of spring. "I feel better honestly," Slovis said on Wednesday. "If anything, I've been working a lot in the offseason and developing hip flexibility and mobility. It takes a lot of pressure off my arm. My arm was getting pretty tired." Just to be safe, USC will continue to monitor Slovis' reps throughout camp. But the rising sophomore quarterback said he finally felt at full strength early last week. - Los Angeles Times

  Freshman Kedon Slovis passed for a school-record 515 yards and threw four touchdown passes in Southern California's 52-35 victory over UCLA on Saturday in the 89th edition of their crosstown showdown. Michael Pittman Jr. caught two touchdown passes and Vavae Malepeai rushed for two scores as the Trojans (8-4, 7-2 Pac-12) wrapped up their regular season with their 16th win in the last 21 meetings with UCLA. Drake London and Tyler Vaughns also caught TD passes, and a school-record four Trojans receivers topped 100 yards receiving while USC survived a tumultuous second half at the Coliseum and eliminated the rival Bruins (4-7, 4-4) from bowl contention.

Slovis carried the Trojans to the Victory Bell with another landmark performance in his impressive debut season. He surpassed Matt Barkley's single-game USC records against UCLA and against any opponent in the fourth quarter while the Trojans racked up 643 yards of offense, and he also surpassed the school record for yards passing in a freshman season. A year after UCLA's Joshua Kelley broke the crosstown showdown's rushing yardage record, Slovis broke its passing record while leading USC to its 10th win in UCLA's last 11 visits to the Coliseum. Slovis also had his third consecutive 400-yard passing game - another first in USC's lengthy history. Dorian Thompson-Robinson passed for 367 yards with TD throws to Demetric Felton, Devin Asiasi and Chase Cota for the Bruins, who will finish with four consecutive losing records for the first time since 1921-24, shortly after the school was established in 1919. Asiasi finished with a career-high 141 yards receiving. - AP College Football

  Freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis will return from an apparent concussion to start for Southern California at No. 9 Notre Dame on Saturday night. USC coach Clay Helton made the announcement Tuesday night after practice. The Trojans (3-2) have had three starting quarterbacks in their first five games thanks to injuries, and the 18-year-old Slovis has missed most of the past two games. After being medically cleared to return, Slovis will get the shot to lead USC against the powerhouse Irish in the schools' famed intersectional rivalry game.

"There's not that much more you can ask for," Slovis said. "It's Notre Dame and USC...They're a good team, obviously one of the best teams in the nation, but Coach Helton is going to put together a great game plan for us." Slovis got hurt on a heavy hit during the opening series of USC's win over then-No. 10 Utah on Sept. 20. He sat out of a loss at Washington on Sept. 28 for the Trojans, who had last week off. "He does not look out of form to me," Helton said of Slovis, who threw to receivers during the Trojans' week off. "He looks really good, and we'll continue through the week. Today, I thought he was very decisive with his decision-making. So hopefully that continues and he carries it to South Bend." - AP College Football

  Not many freshmen get to climb the stepladder, hold up the sword and lead the Southern California band in a postgame victory party at the Coliseum. No Trojans freshman quarterback has ever had a debut start like Kedon Slovis, who turned a tough matchup against Stanford into a celebration of his burgeoning talent. Slovis passed for 377 yards and three touchdowns in a commanding performance, and USC rolled to a 45-20 victory over the No. 23 Cardinal on Saturday night. Slovis went 28 of 33 and set the school record for yards passing in a freshman's first start as the Trojans (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12) rallied from an early 14-point deficit to beat the Cardinal (1-1, 1-1) for the third time in the California private schools' last four meetings. - AP College Football
