LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California quarterback Mark Sanchez will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Sanchez and Georgia's Matthew Stafford, another junior coming out early, are considered the top two quarterback prospects in the draft.

Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford of Oklahoma decided to return to school next year.

Sanchez is coming off a spectacular Rose Bowl against Penn State. The fourth-year junior went 28-35, setting a Rose Bowl record by completing 80 percent of his passes. He threw for 413 yards and four touchdowns, and also ran for a score in the Trojans' 38-24 victory.
