USC Trojans Football: Predicting Starting Offense for Season Opener

In less than two weeks, the USC Trojans open the season September 3rd against the Minnesota Golden Gophers of the Big Ten conference.

The Trojans fall camp was very important in determining several starting positions, but the third scrimmage on Aug. 21 helped finalize most of the remaining ones. 

On whether Sunday’s scrimmage will be the biggest determinant of some starting roles, head coach Lane Kiffin told SCPlaybook:

  "Yeah, I think that’s fair. Still, everything in due counts, and that week will be important. There may be some things too close to call, but I think whether or not we announce them or not, I doubt we’ll do that. But I think as a staff we’ll have a much better direction of who we’re pushing in certain spots."

Here are the third scrimmage stats and recap courtesy of

In February we reviewed the USC projected depth chart after a top five recruiting class. A lot has happened since then so let’s see how the projected starters have changed after spring practice and fall camp.

The starting defensive lineup will be reviewed tomorrow.
