The USC Trojans are sitting at 4-2 (1-2), which is a little shocking honestly when you just look at the pure stat. After beating Arizona last night in the debut of Ed Orgeron (a game that really wasn’t as close as the 38-31 final) it’s not totally inconceivable that without Oregon on the schedule the men of troy could run the table.
Of course it would be anything but easy, but things rarely are in the Pac-12. USC may be underdogs in as many as four of the remaining games against Notre Dame this weekend, Oregon State, Stanford and UCLA. If they could somehow get by the first two of those on the road, the ladder half have to come into the Coliseum near the end of the season.
If they were to somehow accomplish this feat, it is almost certain the Trojans would end up back in a BCS game, even after a horrible beginning to the season. This is USC, the tickets would sell and the story would make good money sense for a lot of people. We’ll have to wait and see how they progress and I wouldn’t put a percentage on it, but if they get a win this weekend in South Bend, watch out.
USC Trojans remaining schedule:
@Notre Dame – Oct. 19
Utah – Oct. 26
@Oregon State – Nov. 1
@California – Nov. 9
Stanford – Nov. 16
@Colorado – Nov. 23
UCLA – Nov. 30
