    Pedro Moura

    1. The lights and the rivalry: It's the first time in 21 years they'll be kicking off under the lights at Notre Dame Stadium, as if they needed anything else to help hype up this game. This will certainly do the trick. Neither USC nor Notre Dame are ...

  12. 5 things to watch: Minnesota vs. USC

    Pedro Moura

    1. The running back battle: It's unusual, but it just might work. It appears the Trojans are purposely refraining from naming a starter at running back to motivate the three competitors for the position and confuse Minnesota, too. But who's going to ...

    Mark Saxon

    Five things to watch: Can the Trojans get up to speed? It's not just that the Ducks play fast. They do everything fast, including getting plays in and snapping the ball. Rumor has it they can brush their teeth in seven seconds flat, and they don't...
