Talk about an anti-climatic game. It feels even less necessary today than when the game was rescheduled.
Some USC fans suggested the Trojans should have pulled a UCLA and taken a forfeit like the Bruins did with Washington this weekend in basketball.
But remember, USC was desperate to be bowl eligible and forfeits do not count as a victory for bowl purposes. So USC needed this game. It just didn’t think it would lose to UCLA and BYU. Oh well.
The 8 p.m. kickoff is diabolical, by the way.
