USC wide receiver Robert Woods proclaimed himself "good to go" against Oregon on Saturday. Now he only awaits the approval of Trojans coach Lane Kiffin. Woods said he wanted to play and wouldn't let shoulder or ankle injuries prevent him from playing in the season's most-anticipated game. "I feel I need to be there on Saturday," Woods said. But Woods acknowledged he wouldn't decide if he plays. "(Kiffin) has the final word," Woods said. No one around USC on Thursday thought Woods would miss the game but Kiffin remained non- committal. "I don't know either way," Kiffin said. "I'll have to see his speed (in warm-ups), if he can go at a high level." Woods didn't practice Thursday. Asked if it made sense for Kiffin to say he might not play against Oregon, Woods said, "not really. I am banged up." Kiffin said he wouldn't use Woods as a decoy because Washington moved a safety away from the star receiver once it realized he was less than 100 percent. "I'm sure (Oregon will) watch the warm- ups," Kiffin said. Times change Kiffin noted USC is a 14 12-point underdog to Oregon and was also an underdog against Stanford. "I don't think any of these kids signed up (at USC) to be double-digit underdogs to a couple of these teams," Kiffin said. USC-UCLA in October? The Pacific-12 Conference informed USC that some of the conference's traditional rivalries will be moved up in the schedule as soon as next year. That means one year the USC-UCLA game could be in October. "We did hear that," Kiffin said. "Wherever they put us, we'll play." Position switch? Linebacker Dion Bailey leads USC in tackles with 69 but said he's not sure what position he'll play next season. "I could see me lined up at safety or linebacker," Bailey said. "If I stay at linebacker, I definitely need to put on some weight." Bailey weighs 205 pounds but said he would need to get between 215-225 next season. Bailey said USC's main objective against Oregon is good tackling. "You've got to tackle," Bailey said. "If you do, they can't put you on ESPN." Bailey missed the Colorado game two weeks ago because of a concussion but said he feels good now. "The first couple snaps against Washington I was a little rusty, but I'm definitely back," he said. Injury report Offensive tackle Matt Kalil (stinger) performed limited drills but should be OK for the game. Safety Demetrius Wright (shoulder) and offensive tackle Aundrey Walker (undisclosed) didn't practice. Defensive tackle DaJohn Harris (ankle) was also limited. Cornerback Torin Harris (shoulder) remains out and looks like he will miss the rest of the season. Weather check The forecast for Eugene, Ore., on Saturday continued to call for showers with a high of 44 degrees. However, it no longer lists snow as a possibility.
