LOS ANGELES -- Rap artist Snoop Dogg donned football gloves and a red Southern California sweat suit to run through drills with the top-ranked Trojans football team on Tuesday.

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, had a 40-yard pass from quarterback Matt Leinart hit him in the hands, but he couldn't hold on.

"Ain't nobody sticking me, that's why I dropped it," the rapper jokingly told players who teased him.

The rap artist, who has coached his son's youth football team, also participated in a few other football drills, knocking down dummies and running over obstacles.

USC (10-0) has this week off. The Trojans play Notre Dame on Nov. 27.
