That's how USC is going to look, at least until the wake up and fire Kiffin and his washed up daddy. The Pete Carroll days are definitely over.
I think if Barkley is healthy and plays, they will beat ND. USC needs about 25 points to beat ND and I think they could get that with a couple big plays from Lee and Woods.
