USC senior G Viane Talamaivao will require surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Talamaivao (6'2/330) suffered the season-ending injury in Friday's upset loss to Washington State. He had been working as the team's starting right guard prior to being lost for the campaign. Just how USC will juggle their offensive line assignments moving forward should clarify over the coming days. Because Talamaivao is a senior and sustained the injury in USC's fifth game of the season, he will not be eligible for a redshirt, which effectively ends his collegiate career. He finishes his time with the Trojans having made 37 starts.

USC senior G Viane Talamaivao underwent surgery to repair a partially torn bicep in early April.

Talamaivao suffered the partial bicep tear during USC's third week of spring practice. On the more positive side of things, Trojans HC Clay Helton said that he still expects the 6-foot-2, 330-pounder to start in the season-opener against Western Michigan on September 2. Talamaivao is a 32-game starter for his collegiate career.

Viane Talamaivao, a four-star high school offensive guard, decommitted from Alabama on Monday and verbally pledged to USC.

Talamaivao is the No. 105 ranked player in the ESPN 300, including the fifth-best guard. "I'd heard earlier today from him that he wanted to go to USC, but I didn't pay any mind to him," Chris Talamaivao, Viane's father, said. "A couple of minutes later, I got a phone call from him, but I knew he was supposed to be in class. He said he had a change of heart and that he wants to be home. It's us. It's the family thing. That's the main reason why he decommitted from Alabama."
