Trojans need to order up blitzes

It’s been a couple of weeks since I could write that USC won, but Saturday’s 38-17 beatdown of Arizona State finally allows me to be optimistic. The Trojans now sit at 7-3 and can win the Pac-12 South with a victory against UCLA next weekend at the Rose Bowl. Yeah, USC put up 38 points. […]

From the archives: Game to be televised nationally

Original Date of Publication: Sept. 18, 1951 SC and the National Broadcasting company have combined to achieve television history with the announcement yesterday that the Trojan-Notre Dame football game, Dec. 1 in Memorial Coliseum, will be televised coast-to-coast over the new microwave relay system. The “live” telecast will be the first to emanate from Los […]

The victory Saturday night over the Running Bulldogs snapped a three-game losing streak for USC (2-3), who had already played two […]

Trojans make a splash in Eugene

The most meaningless phrase you heard over the last week was that USC’s matchup at Oregon was its bowl game. It’s not because it’s a faulty premise — far from it. It’s because it’s been uttered before. When USC traveled to South Bend, Ind., to face Notre Dame in mid-October, that was its bowl game. […]

Golden days relevant once again

I remember USC throttling opponents, stepping on their throats relentlessly. The offense was unstoppable. The defense was stifling. Last weekend I thought I was dreaming, really. It was almost like yesteryear. The USC offense stormed out of the gates on offense against Notre Dame, moving the ball almost seamlessly, having its way against its opponent and […]
