USC cornerback Brian Baucham hospitalized due to breathing issue

By Chris Huston | College Football Writer

USC senior cornerback Brian Baucham has been hospitalized due to a breathing issue, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday:

Baucham, from Torrance, was in intensive care and on a ventilator Saturday and Sunday, but he was removed from the device Monday and his condition was improved, said the person, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Baucham apparently suffered an injury during USC's 27-9 win over California on Saturday, a game in which he had three tackles. He was carted off the sideline in obvious pain and then taken to the hospital by amubulance late in the fourth quarter.

Because of USC's policy of not talking about injuries, there's no further information on his status and a school spokesman declined to comment.

Baucham has been a reserve corner for most of his USC career, but a strong spring ball combined with a lack of depth in the secondary catapulted him into the playing rotation for the Trojans.

He has six tackles and one pass defense so far this season.
