USC FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK: RIVERS AND BAKER HONORED.

Byline: SCOTT WOLF

Staff Writer

USC offensive lineman Sam Baker and linebacker Keith Rivers were named to the Playboy All-America team.

Baker is a repeat selection and first USC lineman to earn consecutive honors since offensive tackle Tony Boselli was a three-time selection (1992-94).

"It's really a cool thing to get that recognition," Baker said. "It's a really hectic weekend but it's a lot of fun."

Baker and Rivers will join the rest of the All-America team in Arizona next month to take a team picture although Baker will arrive late because he is graduating from USC.

"Last year, I met guys that I was going to play against," Baker said. "That part was really cool."

Rivers is the first USC linebacker to make the Playboy team since Marcus Cotton in 1987.

Mustain update: Arkansas quarterback Mitch Mustain visited USC over the weekend but did not provide the Trojans with a commitment. Mustain, who is considering USC and Tulsa, is not expected to announce a decision until after he completes classes at Arkansas.
