USC Trojans back on track
USC Trojans find themselves back on track, thanks to their most complete effort of the season, and their nonconference wins looks better with each passing week.
USC Trojans was behind Ohio State in the all-important BCS standings when it validated reports of vulnerability by losing at Oregon State.
The Trojans only tumbled to No. 9 following the humbling defeat. And their win last week against Stanford and USC moved to team to No. 8. It continued until their game last Saturday.
The Trojans are very much in the hunt for another national championship. After a series of unimpressive performances, they now have their act together.
There have been times when it looked as if they were resting on the laurels earned by Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and others. That complaint went out the window against Oregon.
USC team could just be coming together. There is sufficient time for the Trojans to come together even more.
You will base your final opinion, the only opinion that counts, on where USC stands at the end of the season. If the Trojans win out, including in the championship game, there will be no grumbling.
The Trojans also humbled a Nebraska team that should jump back into the AP Top 25 today after winning at Texas A&M and clinching a spoit in the Big 12 title game.
The Trojans got their act together with a three-touchdown contribution by Chauncey Washington. The young man from South Torrance High has taken over the tailback position.
Watching him excite the sellout crowd with a 43-yard TD run, you think of the large footsteps left by previous tailbacks.
The names of Bush and LenDale White are mentioned frequently because they are USC's most recent history.
