In a different decade, USC-Alabama would be a game that dominated the college football landscape.
But ESPN did not even bother to list it among its “games of interest” this season. Even Oregon-North Dakota State made the cut.
But who can blame ESPN? I’ve yet to come across a USC fan who thinks the Trojans have a chance to beat the Crimson Tide. I met plenty of USC fans in 2016 who at least thought the Trojans had a chance. Years of Clay Helton have taught the fans well.
