In what is probably the most anticipated of the four games on Saturday to kick off the 2013-2014 college football bowl season, dynamic quarterback Derek Carr and his 11-1 Fresno State Bulldogs are taking on the resurgent USC Trojans of the Pac-12.

He certainly is aware of that.

Before the game, ABC showed on its broadcast clips of Carr getting his teammates fired up to take on their Pac-12 opponent. Carr made mention of the fact that he and his team are up against a squad riddled with five-star recruits, while they get little respect whatsoever, despite their superior record:


So far, the pep talk doesn’t seem to be working, at least on the defensive side of the ball, as USC just took their opening drive 60 yards down the field for a score to take the early lead.
