1) Ten Win Season? Check
With the win over Fresno State, the Trojans achieved something few people would have thought possible back in September. They won ten games.
Measuring the true value of those ten wins is tough. After all, half of them came against teams with sub .500 records. However, considering the injury and depth issues USC was dealing with for most of the season, you can’t brush off the impressive total. If nothing else, the Trojans will boast more wins or equal wins to rivals Notre Dame and UCLA.
What that means for the offseason: Steve Sarkisian won’t have much of a grace period. If USC could manage ten wins with all the trouble this year, Sarkisian will be expected to do at least as well with most of the same talent.
