Texas improves to 2-1 and drops USC to 1-2 after the Longhorns’ decisive 37-14 win. The Trojans are going backward. After a lackluster 43-21 win in the season opener over Nevada Las Vegas, USC has looked unprepared and uninspired in losses at Stanford and Texas. The Trojans don’t have a lot of time to make things better. They host Washington State on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Another Pac-12 loss could knock USC out of contention in the South Division before the end of September.
