USC Football: Reports of demise exaggerated

The Trojans chose to do something rare at the start of the game. After winning the coin toss, they chose to receive instead of defer to the second half. While it was a slight breach of tradition, there was a reason. On the first play of the game, Kessler threw a deep ball to Marqise Lee. According to Lane Kiffin during the post-game press conference, “That was Max Nikias’s play...

USC Football: The Cougars and the big screen

Former USC Heisman Trophy winner, Marcus Allen, led the charge out of the tunnel, harkening back to the days of old. Black shoes, white socks. Run-oriented teams and strong defenses. The 2013 team showed a similar spirit against Washington St. with Tre Madden running for over 150 yards and the defense holding them to a field goal.
