For USC, the show must go on. That’s easier said than done.
The Trojans' issues were exposed in a big way against Stanford, and USC will have to rally quickly in order to keep its season alive. One loss doesn’t necessarily eliminate you from the title picture altogether, but it does make things more complicated, as you now have to depend on teams in front of you to lose.
Forget about this, however. The Trojans offensive line was exposed, and their defense will be tested this week against a Cal team that put up more than 500 yards of total offense against Ohio State. They need to bounce back, and they have a chance to do that despite the holes this team has.
