Can you imagine last January telling USC that Alabama, Notre Dame, Oregon and Washington would be removed from its schedule?
A lot of fans think the Pac-12 gives USC short shrift, and in some cases in does, but man did it rig the schedule this season or what?
USC didn’t even have to play well last weekend to beat the best team on its schedule. And Arizona is led by coach (Kevin Sumlin) everyone assumes is on his way out. Then comes Utah, who is just happy to have 53 healthy players.
Did you watch Clemson-Notre Dame? Did you think how USC matched up with either of those teams?
- Defensive tackle Brandon Pili (broken finger) is out and center Brett Neilon (ankle) is highly doubtful per Clay Helton.
- Urban Meyer announced he tested positive for COVID-19 but will be back this weekend on Fox Sports. This explains why Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, etc., were off the air.
- USC was picked to finish sixth in the Pac-12 preseason poll. And freshman Evan Mobley was selected to the Pac-12 All-Conference team.
