Remember the joy that you experienced as Matt Barkley and USC marched up to Autzen Stadium? Remember when Marqise Lee ran all over Oregon's defense?

Or when the Trojans held an 18-point lead going into the fourth? Remember that frightened feeling as Oregon methodically picked apart the Trojans, trying to come back? Remember when Oregon kicker Alejandro Maldonado lined up for a 37-yard field goal to send the game to overtime, but missed?

If not, you can experience those moments and more today on ESPNU! The Worldwide Leader's college channel has been doing a countdown of the top-25 college football games of 2011, and USC vs. Oregon comes in at No. 5. It's at 1:00 p.m. PDT.

And in case you're in a masochistic mood, USC vs. Stanford will be on at 6:30 9:00, as fans voted that as the No. 3 2 game of the year. That triple-overtime thriller had some great moments -- from Troy's triumphant third quarter behind Curtis McNeal, to Nickell Robey's almost-game-winning pick-six off Andrew Luck to Timeout-gate (for the record: I hate using "-gate" at the end of a word to denote a scandal).

I'll have thoughts on each of those games after they re-air.
