USC wins! That's two national championships (one outright this year and one split last year) in a row and a real chance for three next year. USC has 16 players returning out of their 22 starters. Their best running back and Heisman trophy finalist Bush was only a sophomore, so he'll be back. Their second best running back White was a sophomore, he'll be back. Their best receiver Smith was a sophomore, so he will be back, and their Heisman winning quarterback Leinart was only a junior, so he might be back.
