Markowitz, 'I'm focused on the bowl game'

USC fifth-year senior says he's focused on preparing for the Sun Bowl, but there's action behind the scenes as Markowitz pursues the opportunity to play a sixth-season of college football.

USC fifth-year offensive lineman Abe Markowitz is applying to the NCAA for a medical waiver which would clear him for a sixth year of eligibility.

USC Coach Lane Kiffin has already confirmed that there is "no room" for Markowitz with the Trojans in 2013.

Below is a link to his official release from USC as well as a statement made by Markowitz on the situation earlier this week.
