    Right tackle Drew Richmond will not play tonight. Jalen McKenzie will start at right tackle, with Liam Jimmons in at right guard, according to the radio broadcast.

    Iowa is wearing helmets without their normal Tigerhawk side decal tonight, to honor legendary head coach Haden Fry. According to Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz, Fry twice took the logo off the Iowa helmets during his tenure.

    USC wearing the away white jerseys.

    As much as I want Helton out, I can't not root for our boys....Fight On boys!

    Now, let's make sure we have 11 men on the field with 11 unique jersey numbers for the opening kickoff.

    What fond memories I have of being in Miami in 2002 watching our Trojans crush Iowa (after they returned the opening kickoff for a TD). I have to say that the Iowa fans who were tailgating before the game were complete jerks. That surprised me. I wonder how the Iowa fans are acting prior to the Holiday Bowl game today.

    Feels like the first time in a while the Trojans are going to have a fully healthy defense. Starters have been listed.

    Defense: Jackson, Tufele, Tuipulotu, Rector, Gaoteote, Houston, Griffin, Taylor-Stuart, Johnson, Hufanga and Pola-Mao.

    Offense: Slovis, Malepeai, Pittman, St. Brown, Vaughns, Krommenhoek, Jackson, Vera-Tucker, Neilon, Jimmons, McKenzie

    I think Drake London has a monster game tonight. If he isn’t a Mackey award winner before he leaves SC, then the award doesn’t mean jack!

    Now the current cast led by Pittman. USC is Receiver U.

    Spread it around Kedon and crush Iowa.

    Indeed.
    Let’s see if Clay can get out of his own way.

    The line is moving fast with a lot of late money on 'SC. CBS Sports now has 'SC listed as a 1.5 favorite...what gives? Did Iowa announce some people were sitting?

    Slovis coming off a huge day against UCLA, Pittman in lineup despite being a first-rounder and a healthy defense. And Iowa has no business being in Cali.

    I hope we can stay healthy and put a hurt on the Hawkeyes. I worry about Helton not our players.
