What’s in store with this USC podcast:

  • Michael and Alicia open the show with some brief news. There’s a new offensive line commitment to add to the haul while wide receiver Kyle Ford has been cleared to practice. Plus, what’s going on with Andrew Vorhees?
  • The time has come to look at Stanford, a team with almost as many questions to answer as USC. Will starter K.J. Costello be able to play? Can the Cardinal establish the run? Can the Cardinal stop the run? Is Paulson Adebo enough to keep USC’s Air Raid offense off the ground?
  • As always, the Over/Under matchups for the week are set, with some extras from a listener, before the RoT duo make their predictions.
  • Finally, Michael and Alicia tackle a gigantic mailbag, including calls, emails, Facebook messages and Tweets from listener.
