USC’s road to the Rose Bowl

USC’s road to the Rose Bowl

A game-by-game look at USC’s 2016 football season:

Alabama 52, USC 3

Sept. 3 at Arlington Texas 

The good: USC led 3-0 after the first quarter. The bad: pretty much everything that happened afterward. Alabama outgained USC, 465-194. USC rushed for 64 yards. USC blew defensive assignments, turned the ball over, stomped on the groin of an opposing player, dropped a punt snap and had an interception returned for a touchdown. Alabama running back Damien Harris rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns in just nine carries. The loss was USC’s most lopsided in 50 years.
