There are a lot more fans in San Diego from Iowa than USC.
This is not unusual because many USC fans come down the day of the game.
But the fact is Iowa fans are expected to heavily outnumber USC fans at the game. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz remarked today that he saw a lot of Hawkeye fans when he walked around the city.
Iowa fans certainly will have a lot more patience at the game than Trojans fans, who are likely to have a short fuse if there are penalties or other shortcomings so common in the Helton era.
Maybe the beginning of the game will be key because there could be a snowball effect if USC falls behind early.
