The USC football team went through one final workout in Columbia today and now the team is making its way to Birmingham for the PapaJohns.com Bowl against UConn Saturday. They will resume practice sessions there tomorrow. The team worked out in Williams-Brice Stadium today and it is the final time the seniors will ever play on that field. The last practice of the season always tends to be sentimental to the players and the coaches. You can also tell that these guys are ready to play someone after having more than a month off since their last game.

Offensive lineman Garret Anderson is one of the seniors that will be playing his final collegiate game Saturday. He is like a lot of seniors in the fact he can’t believe his time is already almost over. He did say that he is proud of the progress the program has made during his four years. He believes the team is about to turn the corner and is starting to do the things necessary to take that proverbial next step. He said they aren’t there yet but he thinks they are closer than they were when he was a freshman.
