    hate to say, but I can't see USC finishing in the top 4. We might end up #5 but more likely #6/7 if we win out. I would put it at a 1/10 chance of making it

    "Darnold finished the day 21-of-34 passing for 329 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers."

    ...and one rushing TD!

    We needed UW to win out.
    Now, at best, we are going to be facing a 2 loss team in the CCG that will not be ranked in the top 10, and most likely we will be facing a 3 loss Stanford.
    In fact, we will have zero wins over teams with less than 3 losses heading into our bowl game. Couple that with our 2 losses and blowout loss to ND and I don't see how we will be top 5 at the end of the regular season.

    Worst call of the year: Officials make many bad calls, but this call might be the worst of the year= spinning the ball after a reception. unsportsman like? Officials have given football a lobotomy!

    So if Cougs beat UDUB they are Pac 12 north champ.......if they lose then Stanford is the champ assuming they beat Ca next week. The only way for UDUB to get to the game is for them to beat the cougs and Stanford to lose to CA.

    Hoping that the cougs pull it off so we get a chance to show just how bad that crummy schedule effected us this year......49-7 ought to do it just fine. We get a bye and they come off a road trip to UDUB for a rough game and then travel to our game......sounds fair to me.

    UW and Stanford didn't do Trojans any favors by losing as they did in the last couple of weeks. A win over a UW team which could have moved up to a #5 or #6 spot in the CFP ranks by a possible #8 or #9 USC in the Pac-12 Championships might have been able to give USC a shot at the CFP. But with best the Trojans can do is get a win over a 2-loss or even 3-loss team (if Stanford gets in the Championship game AND they beat Notre Dame on the 25th) it will probably not help much in allowing USC to jump above other 2-loss teams in the CFP rankings.

    At this point, kind of hoping for an Oklahoma loss that might lead to USC versus OU in Fiesta Bowl or even the Cotton Bowl.

    Well...if the player is stupid enough to give the ref a reason to make that call by being an idjit, then blame the stupid player first. Don't spin the ball, problem solved.

    If we end up top 4 that would be great but I think people first need to focus on the fact that the Trojans have won the South and are on their way to the conference champ game. If they win out the rankings will take care of themselves.

    Your thread title brought back what I read this morning on ESPN....
    The Sooners cruised to and easy win over TCU 38-20.
    Then an one article down, USC Struggled in their win over Colorado 38-24.
    Talk about “just a little bias” from ESPN.

    I hope this is the 1st of several years of appearances in the PAC-12 Championship Game.
    We need to dominate the South and continue to make it to the game so we (I) can feel like we are beginning to dominate our conference and be one step closer to a dynasty.

    Yeah, that was ridiculous. We had a good size Trojan group at this away game and we booed as loud as we could. When the Colorado player did the same thing - the refs had no choice but to call it on them too. Really ridiculous stuff.

    You don't see the difference between beating TCU by 18 and Colorado by 14? Really?

    Well, it's four points, or about what Lonzo Ball's scoring average is...
