USC football: Former Trojans Jamere Holland, Broderick Green and Emmanuel Moody contributing at transfer schools

Holland Former USC receiver Jamere Holland came back to haunt the Trojans, catching a second-quarter touchdown pass for Oregon in the Ducks' 47-20 victory at Autzen Stadium.

Holland, who transferred from USC after the 2006 season, caught a pass from quarterback Jeremiah Masoli in the back of the end zone, causing Trojans Coach Pete Carroll to doublecheck if it was the former Woodland Hills Taft High star.

"I just asked if that was him," Carroll said Sunday night. "I couldn’t read the [uniform] numbers very well."

Holland had three receptions for 33 yards. He has 10 catches for 138 yards this season.

Holland is one of several former Trojans contributing at other schools.

On Saturday, former tailback Broderick Green scored on a 99-yard run in Arkansas' 63-27 victory over Eastern Michigan. Green, who left USC after last season, finished with 131 yards and two touchdowns in eight carries. He has gained 255 yards in 55 carries and scored six touchdowns this season.

Former tailback Emmanuel Moody, who transferred to Florida after the 2006 season, gained 26 yards in seven carries in the top-ranked Gators' 41-17 victory over Georgia. Moody has rushed for 301 yards in 39 carries this season.
