Battle L.A. is no longer an action movie that flubbed at the box office.
The L.A. Coliseum will become a battleground more hotly contested than Ohio when the Oregon Ducks travel south to brawl it out with the USC Trojans to see who is the most dominant team in the Pac-12.
Everyone had Nov. 3rd circled on their calendars the minute Matt Barkley announced he was returning to USC for his senior season.
Tragically, with USC losing twice so far in the Pac-12, to both Stanford and Arizona, the game has lost some luster as a preview for the Pac-12 title game and to decide which team could possibly play in the national championship game.
Nonetheless, the Trojans and Ducks are going to treat this game the same as they would any other—a battle from start to finish that both teams must win.
