I’m not sold on USC. They play in a relatively weak conference and really don’t have a marque win. Their best wins were against UCLA and ND, both good but not high level teams. I would rate the rest of their schedule as mediocre to weak: Rice, Stanford, Fresno State, ORST (close win) ASU, WSU, AZ, CAL (close win) & CO. They didn’t play Oregon or Washington, and Utah, arguably the best team they played (and will play again) beat them.
How would Texas have done against that schedule? How would USC have fared against Alabama, KSU and TCU? I’d say three losses.
While USC has been gaining confidence, to me they don’t deserve to be considered among the top teams in the country.
