The USC Trojans are back in Boston, facing an improved Boston College squad carving out hope for a possible upset over their top-10 ranked opponent.

Last time they were ranked this high, USC lost to Arizona in 2012. Hoping to avoid a similar fate in a road environment, the Trojans have shifted their focus to replicating last season's success -- this time on the road as the legitimate favorite.
