LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tre Madden has been on both sides of the ball in his short career at Southern California. While he enjoyed his year as a linebacker for the Trojans, he loves his new role as their star tailback.

Even though taking hits isn't as easy as delivering them.

USC (2-1) is grateful Madden isn't afraid of a challenge. In fact, the school long known as Tailback U. hasn't had a ball carrier who got off to such an impressive start since Marcus Allen was running away with the Heisman Trophy in 1981.

After losing last season to major knee surgery and emerging from a tough competition this summer to become the Trojans' starter, Madden already has 362 yards rushing, averaging 5.5 yards per carry.
