The USC defense faces a tough task in attempting to stop Stanford’s offense, especially running back Bryce Love, in Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship game. It appears the Trojans may have to do it without junior outside linebacker Porter Gustin, who has missed the last three games with a toe injury.
The Trojans practiced Monday evening and Gustin was not involved.
Helton says Porter Gustin is more likely for the bowl game. Says Porter's toe is keeping him out of practice this week.

Gustin has been limited to four games all season and only took a few snaps in his last outing: the Oct. 28 game at Arizona State. The edge rusher did record four tackles in USC’s 42-24 win over Stanford at the Coliseum on Sept. 9.
The toe injury has been bothersome for Gustin all season. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder recorded 5.5 sacks last season and came into this season with high expectations.
