Caleb Williams said Wednesday, “at the end of the day we are 5-0.”
USC is undefeated as it heads into the Washington State game. But are some people letting their euphoria overshadow the schedule?
USC’s beaten underwhelming Rice, awful Stanford, overhyped Fresno State, plucky Oregon State and turmoil-ridden Arizona State.
We all knew the schedule was relatively easy so being 5-0 is where USC would have been projected before the season. A win over Washington State would be expected too.
Utah is the supposed big test. Has anyone actually followed Florida since it barely beat the Utes, 29-26? The Gators lost to Kentucky, barely beat South Florida, lost to Tennessee and defeated Eastern Washington.
The Utes’ loss at Florida hasn’t exactly held up. But I guess this is what qualifies as a major test in the Pac-12 circa 2022.
