Jayon Brown talked during USC week.
On confidence coming off the OSU win:
It's good to get back on the winning side of things.
On if they enjoyed being out there:
It was fun. Winning is fun. And as long as we're winning, we're having fun.
On if they have to emphasize to younger players the importance of this game:
There is no saying, you don't need to say anything. They know what they came here for, to play in big games like these.
On what playing in the UCLA-USC game is like:
It's heated, it's fun. It's everything you wanted when you committed to this school. It will be so fun, I can't wait.
On if he's talked to any former teammates now at USC:
Not yet, but we'll see. But maybe I'll get a couple of texts. Not sure (what I'll say).
On USC's offense:
Their offense is going to be one of the biggest challenges we have this whole season. They have the best offense we'll go against. They have electric receivers, a very good o-line and the quarterback is very talented. We'll have to come with our A game.
On closing in on 100 tackles:
It's a fun stat.
On how much being a Poly grad adds to it:
It's fun, going up against Juju (Smith) and Biggie (Iman Marshall). I grew up with most of those guys. Played against them throughout Pop Warner and high school. Hopefully we'll get a win so I can talk smack.
On if it feels like he's played against so many USC players in high school:
Yes, both defensively and offensively.
On what a victory would mean:
Yeah, the glory is great after a USC victory. Getting a victory against those guys would mean everything.
On if losing last year adds more incentive this year:
Yeah, we're definitely looking for revenge on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.
On if he remembers the memorable 13-9 game in 2006:
I can't remember that game. I probably didn't watch that one.
