Five Storylines: USC-Oregon 

November, 1, 2012
Five storylines for the USC Trojans (6-2 overall, 4-2 Pac-12) going into their showdown with No. 4 Oregon (8-0, 5-0) at the Coliseum on Saturday.

1. USC's ability to regroup: The loss to Arizona was a body blow, as gut-wrenching of a defeat as the USC program has had in years. With the possibility of a national title officially off the table, the Trojans cannot afford to sit around and wonder what happened, they need to turn right around and face the best opponent on the schedule.

2. Oregon looking to bolster national title run: The Ducks are clicking on all cylinders these days and Chip Kelly has his team’s sights set on a national championship. Kelly is a ruthless coach and he will not hesitate to keep his foot on the gas if he gets an opportunity because he knows just what is at stake in this game.
