In what will certainly be a "make-or-break year" for Trojan head coach Lane Kiffin, USC enters the 2013 season with high hopes and a lot of questions.
Among those queries will be how the new quarterback performs, whether or not new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast can get the Trojans to buy in to his new 5-2 defensive scheme and whether or not All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee can follow up his record-setting 2012 season with an even better one in 2013.
And while the fanbase is pondering that, it will be introduced to a variety of new starters which the Trojans hope will help lead USC to bounce back season after a disappointing 7-6 effort last year.
The Trojans have just released their depth chart (as reported by Garry Paskwietz of ESPN) for the Hawaii game, and indeed, there are a bevy of new starters who will be making their debut for the Cardinal and Gold.
This slideshow will introduce you to those new faces who hope to return USC to glory in 2013.
And without further delay, there they are.
