USC has not been up to normal expectations lately.
The USC Trojans football program has taken a few hits over the past few years.
Pete Carroll ran to the NFL and the current staff and players have had to deal with the NCAA sanctions.
They will likely to continue to be decent over the next few years with solid recruiting classes coming in each year.
Still, they might be an attractive team to schedule for Mizzou.
The Tigers are beginning to dabble in the Pac-12 with Arizona State this season.
In the future, a matchup with the Trojans would look very good to the media, especially since USC has been over-hyped since the Reggie Bush era.
In that sense, a win over an ovverrated team is never a bad situation, if they do in fact remain overrated.
The Tigers, if they enjoy the Pac-12 experience with Arizona State this year, should explore the class of the conference in USC down the road.
