USC’s season has been filled with ups, downs, turns, and a false sense of promise.
The Orgeron-led Trojans managed to hang on for a win over Arizona, and the USC was bound for South Bend with hopes of improving their record to 5-2.
Instead, despite forcing Notre Dame to punt on six of their eight second half possessions, USC was unable to walk away victorious.
USC now sits at 4-3, and while they technically could still win the Pac-12 South, it isn’t likely. With severe injuries and depth issues, there is legitimate doubt as to whether the Trojans can simply manage to get bowl eligible.
USC has six regular season games remaining, with three a piece at home and on the road. The month of November begins with visits to Corvallis and Berkeley in back-to-back weekends.
The Trojans’ struggles in Corvallis are well-known, and this year’s game being played on a Friday night will presumably add fuel to the fire for the traditionally raucous crowd.
A schedule that some initially didn’t perceive as daunting, is now full of difficult games where it is hard to envision the Trojans winning.
USC’s next game may provide a small break for the Trojans as Utah quarterback Travis Wilson may not be able to play.
However, given that USC is coming off a loss to a backup quarterback who played nearly two quarters and failed to complete a pass, the Trojans are in no position to take any situation lightly.
