The Trojans headed into this season with questions surrounding its QB situation. Senior QB Matt Barkley was ruled out by the "gestapo style" NCAA po-po. They ruled him inelgible because he got a golf cart ride across the USC campus. Luckily Sophomore QB Charlie Curtis, a very capable backup, will continue the legacy of great USC quarterbacks. In his first game as a starter, Curtis threw 7 touchdowns in the first half. The USC receiving corps and offensive line are the strength of this years Trojan team. However, RB Dillon Baxter is the leader of the Trojan team. The Trojan Defense is led by a strong secondary and a fierce defensive line. The Defense is lead by Defensive ends Nick Perry and Wes Horton and Safeties Jawanza Starling and TJ McDonald.
