There will be more than bragging rights on the line when USC and UCLA square off on Saturday. It's reminiscient of 2002, when the Trojans scored a decisive victory.
The Trojans must identify who will replace three-fouths of the defensive line as they had into spring ball.
Social media's affect on USC's program is completely generational, as coaches' "old school" approach is counteracted by players embracing the concept.
After being worn down by Oregon the last two years, USC coach Lane Kiffin has made a concerted effort to increase the Trojans' speed and stamina.
Trojans get a chance to learn valuable lessons while keeping their undefeated record intact.
There are some similiarities from Pete Carroll's second offseason to Lane Kiffin's, but will Kiffin provide the same results in year two?
