The Verdict... ESPN.com reports that the USC Trojans have the eighth toughest schedule in college football for the upcoming 2007 Season. Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated ranked their current schedule as the second toughest within their own conference, behind the Pac-10's Washington Huskies. The USC Trojans have the tools and personnel to get it done in the Pac-10 in 2007, with their place at the top of the Preseason Polls well deserved. Although John David Booty may stake his claim as the best quarterback in all of college football heading into the 2007 season, the USC Trojans have a difficult schedule ahead of them, including four of their final six games coming against potential Top 25 teams on the road: Notre Dame, Oregon, California, and Arizona State. Also during this stretch, the Trojans will return to the Coliseum to play Oregon State and UCLA in their final home game of the season. Although Pete Carroll should never be discounted when it comes to gearing his squad up for a run at the National Championship, the lack of a true go-to reciever could seriously jeopardize USC's ability to run the table, which has become a near-prerequisite to earning a national championship bid under the current system.
Prediction... The USC Trojans finish the season at 10-2, losing to Notre Dame and California, both on the road. USC earns a bid in the BCS Bowl Championship Series.
