Trojan Tidbits, 10/5: USC schedule reactions coming in hot

New, comment

All the talk, all the buzz about USC’s newly-announced 2020 football schedule

So — we know what the schedule is for the USC Trojans. We know the six games. We know there’s a seventh game, a seeded game or a de facto Pac-12 Championship game during Pac-12 Championship Week.

We know the opponents, and we know the dates and locations. What we don’t know, however, is just how each team will navigate through an incredibly difficult time and training camp with added weights of having daily COVID-19 testing and other difficulties that are sure to arise.

We also don’t know what the national media is saying because well let’s face it, we’re pro-USC here, so we’ll block out all that trash, right?!

As a reminder, here is the six-game schedule as it was announced this weekend:

Week 1 — Saturday, November 7 — vs Arizona State Sun Devils

Week 2 — Saturday, November 14 — @ Arizona Wildcats

Week 3 — Saturday, November 21 — @ Utah Utes

Week 4 — Saturday, November 28 — vs Colorado Buffaloes

Week 5 — Friday, December 4 — vs Washington State Cougars

Week 6 — Saturday, December 12 — @ UCLA Bruins

And now — let’s take a look at all of the takes from around the country on USC’s chances and overall feel for this schedule.
