2020 Record: 5-1
5 ⭐ ………. 1
4 ⭐………. 14
3 ⭐………. 7
The Trojans were so close….. had they beaten Oregon, would they have made the playoff? It’s not pleasant to imagine what ‘Bama would have done to them, but at least, for a change, they were at least on the edge of that conversation.
QB Kedon Slovis will be a Heisman candidate, and the Trojans will put up numbers and points. The defensive backfield is loaded. Weather the Trojans will be in that playoff conversation again depends on one thing… how well the lines on either side perform. They need a running game to provide balance, and last year were dead last in the Pac-12,
If Things Go Well
If the Trojans find a running game and are able to get significant pressure on opposing QBs, a conference title is easily possible and a spot in the playoff is possible.
If They Don’t
Even without Oregon and Washington on the slate, there are still plenty of loseable games.
The talent is there, but it has been for a while. USC still recruits like… well, USC. But they’re in the same boat as programs like Michgan and Texas… fading giants that simply aren’t elite programs any more. If you’re expecting them to be, you’ll be disappointed. A Pac-12 title, New Year’s day bowl game… those are realistic goals for today’s USC.
