Su'a Cravens wasted no time making an impression for USC by intercepting a pass in the first quarter of the Trojans' 30-13 victory at Hawaii.
Now the freshman safety is looking forward to his first game in the Coliseum.
Cravens will start again on Saturday when the Trojans play host to Washington State in a Pac-12 Conference opener.
"I'm extremely excited," said Cravens, who came to USC from Vista Murrieta High. "My parents are going to be there, half my family is going to be there.
"My mom always told me when I was little, 'I can envision you running out to the Coliseum and me just crying.' So, I know I'm going to hear my mom yelling over all the people."
Because of conference scheduling rotations, USC is playing Washington State for the first time since 2010.
