USC is still on Christmas break today before heading to the Cotton Bowl.
- How thin is USC going to be at linebacker? Ralen Goforth and Tuasivi Nomura entered the transfer portal. Eric Gentry and Shane Lee might play the whole game. Or we might even see a rare appearance from Raesjon Davis.
- Will Jordan Addison attend the game or does he need to rest his injured ankle?
- There’s been little said about how much Caleb Williams has practiced? If Williams plays and is not limited, the injury would have been a lot less severe than feared the night of the Pac-12 title game. It’s kind of important to know if Miller Moss will play.
- Is there any chance Mekhi Blackmon doesn’t play? There were rumors he might want to get ready for the NFL Draft but nothing has been said to indicate he would not play.
- How many tickets has USC sold? I don’t know anyone that wants to go. That wasn’t the case the last time the Trojans played in the Cotton Bowl (against Ohio State). Mike Bohn talks about the fans’ “intensity of interest” but not enough to mention how many tickets have been sold.
- Did you catch Coach Bohn’s loud (as usual) interview via Zoom on Channel 4’s “The Challenge” Sunday night? He didn’ say much.
- Lincoln Riley spent Christmas at the Rams game.
