TEAMS:
If there’s one bright side to Matt Leinart not being on an NFL team, it’s that he’s able to support his alma mater on Saturdays. The USC Trojans took advantage of that by having their former Heisman Trophy winner lead the team onto the field before Saturday’s game against the Stanford Cardinal. Leinart was as […]

WATCH: USC makes 47-yard field goal to beat Stanford

Stanford, by virtue of its loss to Utah earlier this season, was already a long shot to have a chance at playing in the BCS National Championship Game. But after tonight’s defeat, the Cardinal are probably going to be on the outside looking in for any of the BCS bowl games. USC, which is now 5-1 since the firing of Lane Kiffin, did the unthinkable and knocked off No. 4 Stanford...

USC Football: Don’t call it an upset

Apparently good things come in fours. After four years of losing to Stanford, USC picks up its first ranked win against rank #4 Stanford— their first win against a ranked opponent since taking down fourth-ranked Oregon in Eugene in 2011. Two teams went blow for blow playing in an old school fashion like they have since 1905. Plays weren’t flashy, and yards weren’t easy. Much...

USC Football: Getting to know Javorius “Buck” Allen

Javorius Allen, also known as Buck, has benefited the most from Lane Kiffin’s firing. During the 2013 season, while Kiffin was still the head coach, Buck Allen had 14 rushing attempts and recorded 78 yards with 0 touchdowns. Fast forward to USC football under interim head coach, Ed Orgeron. In 5 games under Orgeron, Buck Allen has 37 rushing attempts, 327 yards and 7 touchdowns...

USC upset Stanford, Ed Orgeron gave an epic fist pump, and then handled a sword

USC is now 5-1 under Ed Orgeron.

The Relationship Between Ed Orgeron and Jerry Seinfeld

There’s an old Seinfeld episode called “The Opposite,” in which George Costanza looks at his life and realizes everything he does is wrong.  Why not do exactly the opposite?  Well, the same logic applies to USC’s Ed Orgeron, who was elevated to interim head coach after Lane Kiffin was fired.  The former Ole Miss headman developed a reputation with the Rebels for hard practices...

USC Trojans bring in Dr. Dre to pump up team night before game vs. Stanford

Tweet The USC Trojans, after ridding themselves of (insert derogatory remark of your choosing) Lane Kiffin have been on a tear. On Saturday, though, they will have their biggest test in a while when they face off with fourth-ranked Stanford. It’s hard to imagine the Trojans not already being amped up for a game of this magnitude (for their team at...

USC Football: RB Silas Redd “out” and RB Javorious Allen “in” may be an upgrade

USC announced earlier this week that Trojan running back Silas Redd is out against Stanford with a knee injury and that Tre Madden is “probable” with his hamstring. That means he’s not 100% healed, but he could contribute. As far as USC running backs go, one man’s misfortune is another man’s opportunity. With Madden’s hamstring and Redd’s knee, an opportunity arose...

Orgeron proving he's more than just a quick fix

LOS ANGELES So much in the Coliseum on Saturday night was predicated on a chance. For interim head coach Ed Orgeron, his was the chance to prove he could lead a team to victory over a top-5 opponent and he wasn't just a quick fix to a bad situation. For the USC Trojans it was snapping a four-game losing streak to No. 4 Stanford. For Andre Heidari, it was a chance at redemption...

Photos: Here Are The Best College GameDay Signs In Los Angeles For Stanford-USC

The USC Trojans have seemingly turned their season around since the firing of Lane Kiffin earlier this year. Ed Orgeron has led the team to four victories in five games (the lone loss was to Notre Dame), and now ESPN’s College GameDay has come to town to see if USC is for real. Tonight, the Trojans get to take on No. 4 Stanford fresh of a win against previously undefeated Oregon...

Dr Dre Gives USC Pep Talk Before Stanford Game (Video)

USC has turned it’s season around after firing Lane Kiffin and have a huge matchup with 4th ranked Stanford on Saturday night. USC President Max Nikias brought in a special guest to help fire the Trojans up.   Dr. Dre took time out from making the Detox to pay his fellow South Central brethren some love. Dre said that he was a longtime fan of the team and wished them luck. USC...
