Some interesting Fun Facts on USC's 2009 season

I took these all from RipsIt...

  • With Saturday's Emerald Bowl win over Boston College, the Trojans have now won 16 consecutive nonconference games.
  • The Trojans flew a whopping 13,080 roundtrip air miles, equivalent to 52 percent of the way around the world at the equator. That stunning total was up 42 percent from last season's 9,196 air miles.
  • Following its 24-13 win on Saturday night, USC now owns a 140-35-4 all-time record in night games (kickoff after 5 p.m.). That's an .800 winning percentage under the lights for the Trojans.

Ben also compiled some great stats...
