USC Football Podcast: Reign of Troy Radio, Episode 23

The Trojans enter the day with a 4-3 record as they look to host the similarly-recorded Utah Utes at the LA Coliseum. USC badly needs a win, as they sit in danger of not being bowl eligible with three tough games against current 6-1 teams (at Oregon State, vs. Stanford and vs. UCLA) still remaining on the schedule.

We dissect last Saturday’s loss to Notre Dame, while looking ahead to the today’s tilt against the Utes.

Here’s what on tap in the podcast:

  • The Trojans got a million breaks last week at Notre Dame but couldn’t make the Irish pay. What went wrong?
  • USC hosts Utah, who will play with Travis Wilson at quarterback. Wilson, at the time of this podcast’s recording, was questionable with an upper body injury. Given how the Trojans couldn’t take advantage of Tommy Rees being out, does it even matter if Wilson plays?
  • We said that the four-game stretch against Utah State, Arizona State, Arizona and Notre Dame would define the season. Now that those four games have taken place, do we have a definition for the season at all?

Stay tuned to Reign of Troy Radio, as we’ll have another installment early next week to breakdown what went down in today’s game against Utah.
