USC Can Still Prevail In Pac-12


USC can now, by all means, start beating teams like they were meant to do this season.

After USC’s embarrassing loss to Washington at home, Steve Sarkisian was fired and the program looked gloomy going forward.

However, a few enormous wins against Pac-12 powerhouses Utah, Cal, and Arizona have the Trojans in a familiar position to possibly play for the Pac-12 crown.

Before the bandwagon takes off, they need to handle what’s in front of them and rely on cross-town rival UCLA to win a key game as well.

With three games to play, USC is sitting at an overall record of 6-3 and a conference record of 4-2.

I never saw this coming after the Sark firing and I’m sure I wasn’t the only doubter.

They are winners of three straight and it’s the perfect time for them to go on a hot streak going into the “Battle of LA” game later this month.

Nevertheless, I question this team’s heart after the loss to Washington.

I was very distraught at the lack of capitalizing on a golden opportunity at home.

At the end of the day, the Sark’s firing proved to be what was hindering this team.

But on this three game winning streak they have proved to me that they can still play big in high-magnitude games.

Therefore, these next few games might be the biggest of the season so far.

Colorado hosts the Trojans later on this evening, and to be honest, the Buffaloes aren’t good at all.

This is a typical trap game that could potentially end USC’s hopes of winning the Pac-12 South, though.

The Trojans have to take care of business tonight and win a big game on the road in a hostile environment.

Historically, USC seem to struggle in these types of games on the roads against inferior opponents.

Before the big game against UCLA, they go to Eugene and play the explosive Oregon Ducks offense.

Over the years, that’s been a tough place to play at, but the Ducks are struggling this season and I fully expect USC to go in there and get it done.

That brings me to UCLA going into Utah next week.

If the Bruins can upset Utah, it will set up a potential winner-take-all game November 28th at the Coliseum to win the Pac-12 South.

In addition, it may give USC that rematch with bitter rival Stanford Cardinal in the Pac-12 title game.

I know it seems unbearable, but anything can happen in college football.

Three weeks ago, I thought the Trojans season was over — but they still have a fighting chance to give the fan base some hope.

Bottom Line: It’s go time for the Trojans.

Nonetheless, it starts with themselves, they have to beat Colorado tonight and win every game here on out to give themselves a chance to at least play the Pac-12 crown.

The offense is great but I expect the defense to play immense down the stretch of the season.

The team will only go as far as their defensive play makers Cameron Smith, Su’a Cravens and Adoree Jackson will take them.

Therefore, it will be an exciting end to this season and fight on!
