At Least Two Trojans will be pivotal in this year's Cal-USC showdown

After a 7-6 season and another middle of the pack finish for the Bears, Cal hopes to ride high off the reopening of Memorial Stadium and make a push towards a Pac-12 title. If the Bears plan on finishing better than their mediocre 4-5 in conference record, the defense will again have to be stellar.

With the return of Matt Barkley at USC and the rise of Keith Price in Washington, Cal has its work cut out for it. If a rather porous secondary starts out slow, the Bears could be looking up in the standings early in the season.

In order to make some noise on the West Coast, Cal will need to lock up these five players if it plans on reaching its first Rose Bowl in over 50 years.
