USC’s MacKenzie To Miss Season

September 2, 1998

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ USC backup tailback Malaefou MacKenzie will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee in Sunday’s season-opening victory over Purdue.

MacKenzie, who rushed for 28 yards on seven carries against the Boilermakers, injured himself on a 2-yard run in the third quarter. The sophomore will undergo surgery Friday.

``What can I say, that’s football,″ he said. ``All things happen for a reason.″

MacKenzie will redshirt this season to retain a year of eligibility.
