    A few of the guys who aren't in pads today are cornerback Jayden Williams and tight end Ethan Rae. Tight end Jude Wolfe, defensive end Kobe Pepe and linebackers Tayler Katoa, Eli'jah Winston and Solomon Tuliaupupu continue to sit out.

    And welcome to the world of trying to tell Joshua Jackson Jr. and Isaac Taylor-Stuart apart. Sometimes you can see Taylor-Stuart's dreadlocks, but when you can't, it's tough. it also looks like both are wearing white sleeves on their left arm today. I'm going with socks, as Taylor-Stuart is wearing short black socks while Jackson Jr. is wearing longer white socks (not to start a uniform sock debate here).

    Can’t we tell by the numbers they are wearing?

    Looks like the uniforms are split into cardinal for offense and white for defense. Not sure how the scoring will work at this point.

    A couple thin positions today are the cornerbacks and the defensive line. With Jayden Williams and Adonis Otey both out, there are only four healthy cornerbacks (Steele, Taylor-Stuart, Jackson and Hewett). And only six defensive linemen, with Sekona, Toia, Ta'ufo'ou, Lichtenstein, Tuliaupupu and Benton).

    Both are wearing No. 6, as they have all spring. I probably should have led with that.

    Tight end Josh Falo is back in pads after suffering an injury earlier this spring. Today is also the first time we've seen Bru McCoy in full pads.

    Scoring will be based on the quarterbacks.

    Kedon Slovis, Jaxson Dart and Brad Aoki are the quarterbacks for the Cardinal team.

    Mo Hasan, Miller Moss and Isaac Ward are the quarterbacks for the Gold team.

    Major mixing up of the offensives lines today with the two teams.

    Starting offense line for the Cardinal team was Andrew Vorhees, Justin Dedich, Brett Neilon, Geno Quinones and Jonah Monheim.

    Staring offensive line for the Gold team was Courtland Ford, Jason Rodriguez, Andrew Milek, Liam Jimmons and Jalen McKenzie.

    Back to back big plays for the Gold team.

    Keaontay Ingram took a short Mo Hasan pass for 49 yards with a great run after the catch to escape multiple defenders. Hasan then lofted one down the sideline that Bru McCoy came down with for a 25-yard touchdown.

    Yes. Dorian Hewett with that interception. We've seen a few throws from quarterbacks like that this spring, trying to hit receivers deep down the sideline that get picked when they come up short.

    Chris Steele picks off Miller Moss when Moss was trying to float it downfield for Bru McCoy. Another really nice play on the ball by a USC cornerback this spring.

    Looks like Mo Hasan and Gary Bryant might be done for the day. Both came out limping and both have been sitting on the trainer's table since then.

    Miller Moss and Keaontay Ingram fumble a handoff exchange and it's recovered by Jay Toia.

    Stephen Carr with a 26-yard run after bouncing it out to the right side. A couple of nice runs have come that way with Jonah Monheim out there.
