USC Football: Full Stat Projections for Buck Allen in 2014

Running back Javorius "Buck" Allen emerged as the face of USC's second-half resurgence in 2013. The redshirt junior went from seldom-used reserve to the primary weapon in the Trojans' 7-2 finish. 

With USC head coach Steve Sarkisian introducing a hurry-up offense, Allen should see more opportunities to shine in 2014. 

Sarkisian first implemented the system at Washington last season, and former Huskies running back Bishop Sankey finished as the nation's No. 4-ranked ball-carrier. Allen told Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated Sankey offered high praise of the offensive scheme. 

"He was telling me how good [Sarkisian's] system is, the things to look forward to," Allen said. "Right now I'm loving it. I love the playbook we have, I love the fast tempo."

More snaps from the faster tempo offense equates to more touches, which means Allen could have a very big statistical year ahead of him.
