When it comes to sports, specifically USC football, everyone has moments that keep them up at night.

What better day to explore those memories than Friday the 13th, the most cursed and superstitious day on the calendar.

After all, what is more potentially unlucky than football, the game of inches.

Consider a few of these terror-inducing thoughts:

The 1990s included an eight-game losing streak to UCLA and the tail end of a 0-12-1 record versus Notre Dame in a 13-year span.

In fact, USC won a combined five games against its two rivals in that decade.

Even more agonizing? The Trojans were two batted balls, a triple-overtime loss, a broken finger and a dark Thursday in September away from making it to the title game in six straight years during the 2000s under Pete Carroll.

With that in mind, we decided to take a look at some of the most horrifying moments in USC history, in chronological order.

We apologize in advance for any pain this list may cause.
