USC's Tavai Travels to Oregon; ECC's Tavai Outmaneuvers the Competition

USC is facing the highly rated University of Oregon Ducks right now. Watch the game on ABC. Mira Costa grads, the Tavai brothers, hope to reunite at USC.

Mira Costa standout football player for the 2010 season J.R. Tavai is not a starter for the USC Trojans, but who would expect the freshman to be? J.R. fans were extremely pleased to see the athlete earn a scholarship to USC. 

Right now, USC is taking on the University of Oregon Ducks, a prime college football contest with tons of eyes watching, in person and on TV. ABC, channel 7, in Los Angeles is airing the game now, so tune in for a hot rivalry.

There are a few Ducks who hail from Manhattan Beach and plenty of USC grads who call MB home, so I'm sure the game will be watched by millions. The Ducks are ranked at No. 4 in the nation while USC is ranked at No. 18.

Oregonlive.com is hosting a live chat room now and Oregon fans are pumped to support their team. Ducks fans are known to make their Autzen Stadium so rambunctiously loud that opposing teams find it difficult to focus and play their game.

J.R. probably won't play tonight but he did get some playing time against the Stanford Cardinals after starter Wes Horton was injured. J.R. made two tackles in the game. Here's his profile, complete with questions and a video interview, on The Ripsit Blog, which posts on a USC website.

Jordan Tavai, J.R.'s older brother and a standout at Mira Costa who now plays at El Camino College, was featured in the Daily Breeze today.

J.R.and Jordan hope to reunite to play together at USC.

In the meantime, who do you think will win tonight's game: USC or Oregon?
