USC (3-1) has lots of dynamic talent on the offensive and defensive side of the ball; two of their biggest playmakers are also some of their youngest stars.

On offense, true freshman Ronald Jones II leads the team in rushing yards. He averages 8.1 yards per carry on 30 attempts, for 242 yards and 2 touchdowns. While Tre Madden has more attempts and touchdowns, Jones leads the offense in rushing yards.

Similarly, USC's defense is also led by a true freshman. Through four games, Cameron Smith has 30 tackles and one sack. Junior Su'a Cravens has the next most tackles, with 27.
