Townsend adjusting to move

LOS ANGELES -- For all the hype the 2012 USC Trojans are receiving, making plane and hotel reservations for January's BCS title game in Miami would seem to be a good idea.

However, before things get too out of hand, the interior of the Trojans defensive line must be rebuilt, and it's a genuine area of concern, one which could put a cancellation on those championship travel plans.

Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron currently is looking to fill the void of both inside tackle positions, having bid a fond farewell to three-year starting nose guard Christian Tupou and two-year starting defensive tackle DaJohn Harris.
