USC Football: Blueprint for Trojans to Make It to BCS Title Game

Last weekend was sort of glorious for USC fans. Several key losses by top teams put USC more in control of its own destiny than they’d been since the loss to Stanford in September.

Florida State had been getting a lot of hype, but its loss to unranked North Carolina State (17-16) proved there was more hype than reality in Tallahassee.  With Boston College up this weekend and Miami, Duke, VA Tech, Maryland and Florida ahead, the Seminoles are likely to rack up at least two losses by the end of the season.

LSU, oh LSU.  Where do I even begin?  Has any team taken a bigger tumble in perception since the preseason?  The Tigers outdid even USC on this front. With the loss to Florida (overrated in my opinion) and South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi State ahead on the Tigers’ schedule…well, it’s not going to be pretty.

So let’s take a look at how USC, other than the simple fact of needing to win out while other teams lose, can potentially make it to the BCS title game in January in Miami.
