Trojans triumph over Cal for the 12th time in a row, thanks largely in part to a stellar performance by Adoree' Jackson. Before the game, USC AD Pat Haden announced that he would be stepping down from his duties on the College Football Playoff committee due to health concerns.
From around the web, some heartening new developments as well as some more sobering news. According to the LA Times and Reign of Troy, USC star receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster might need surgery to repair a fracture in his right hand sustained during last Saturday's victory over Cal.
In more positive news, possibly changing in the tide in the Trojan's recent recruiting luck, track and football star T.J. Brock of West Hills Chaminade has committed to play for USC, according to the LA Daily News.
And according to Pac-12.com, USC has a chance of heading to the Pac-12 Football Champion Game, as long as they win all of their remaining four games and Utah manages to lose just one of those.
