Video: Uniform-clad USC players crash organic chemistry

USC is a close-knit team and like to do everything together — even dress up in their uniforms (pads, helmets and all), walk around campus and crash an organic chemistry class.

Led by quarterback Matt Barkley, six Trojans decided to dress in full uniform and travel the campus greeting students, taking pictures and even answering some questions about the structure of carbon-based compounds.

Yeah, that happened.

The six student-athletes crashed an organic chemistry class and Robert Woods, a policy, planning and development major, even answered a question and surprised teammates when it was a correct answer.

"Woody just answered a question in organic chemistry," Barkley tells the camera amid laughter. "And the teacher said, 'Well, that's correct.'"

Safety T.J. McDonald adds that USC players are more than just jocks.

"Trying to show both sides of USC football, the physical side and the smart side," he said.

At the end of the video, four guys cram into a pedicab, including 305-pound center Khaled Holmes, and the poor pedicab driver does his best to pedal off. Perhaps they're off to crash women's basketball practice.
