USC's Lee, McNeal in question for Sun Bowl play

EL PASO USC, already without quarterback Matt Barkley for the Sun Bowl, finished Saturday's practice with receiver Marqise Lee and running back Curtis McNeal in question for Monday's game against Georgia Tech. Lee, an All-American who won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver, was held out of most of USC's final workout after apparently hurting his...

Lane Kiffin cost USC the game, not Max Wittek

Lane Kiffin’s play calling at the end of the USC vs Notre Dame game was absolutely atrocious. USC was down by one score with 5:58 left in the 4th quarter and a shot to beat the number 1 Irish. Kiffin started the drive with a great pass from first start freshman Max Wittek to Marqise Lee for 53 yards to the Notre Dame 2 yardline, that’s right, THE TWO. USC then committed a false...

USC Trojans vs. UCLA: What to Watch in Crosstown Rivalry

The USC Trojans visit the Rose Bowl this afternoon for their annual crosstown rivalry game against the UCLA Bruins. Last year, the Trojans doled out a 50-0 beatdown at home in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and neither team has forgotten. The Bruins, under first-year head coach Jim Mora, are eager to erase the memory of last season – but they’re still smarting from the loss...

"Moody" McNeal goes off...

USC needed depth at tailback coming into the 2012 season. They got it with the addition of Penn State transfer Silas Redd. But with the addition of Redd has also meant less time for senior Curtis McNeal. With Redd unavailable against Arizona State, McNeal proved he can still be a go-to guy for the Trojans.

Defense Keeps USC Trojans Alive in Pac-12 South

In the early part of this season, it was the USC Trojans’ defense – not the highly-touted offense – that was the key to winning games, but over the last two weeks, the defense was responsible for the team’s losses. The unit bounced back this week in USC’s 38-17 win over Arizona State, holding the Sun Devils to just 250 total yards. “We were just tired of losing,” defensive...

USC offense failing to meet expectations

The expectations were enormous for USC coming into the season, primarily on the offensive side of the ball. There was the dynamic playcalling of Lane Kiffin, who appeared to dial up all the right plays at the right time at the end of last season. He had his major toys returning. After all, it was supposed to be like a video game. Matt Barkley was the leader out of the gate to...

USC vs. Utah

The Trojans were able to get back on track last week after a tough loss to Stanford. They next head to Rice-Eccles Stadium to play the 2-2 Utah Utes. Some were wondering how USC would respond against California after a relatively surprising loss to the Cardinal. Well, they did just fine. Matt Barkley, though, struggled a little bit, completing 22-of-34 passes for 192 yards, while...

Lane Kiffin gave his team the day off on Thursday. It will be their first of two off days in three days during the bye week. As the Trojans go through the bye, Kiffin's two most glaring concerns have been eased. First and foremost was depth at running back. That problem disappeared when Silas Redd showed up from Penn State. The one-two punch of Curtis McNeal and Redd showed...
