X’s and O’s: What went Right... What went Wrong: Texas Longhorns

We continue with “a little football film” Part Four Football is back, that means some film, right? From the first X’s and O’s: We all see the highlights of the games, and to a certain extent we understand, however very few take a deep dive into the complicated world of X’s and O’s. Through breaking down some of the biggest games from last season, we’re gonna to try to show you what USC players and coaches watch so closely and what they see every second of every game. We started with X’s and O’s of the Alabama game, followed by the film session on Sam Darnold’s stellar...

What We Learned In USC’s 2 OT Victory Over Texas

What We Learned In USC’s 2 OT Victory Over Texas

Before we turn the page to Cal, here’s what we learned during the USC-Texas instant classic Last Saturday the USC Trojans and Texas Longhorns met in their first game since the 2006 Rose Bowl Game. While this game was nowhere near what the 2006 meeting was, it was still an instant classic. Before we move forward and look towards the Cal Bears, let’s revisit the Trojans double overtime victory over Texas and see what we’ve learned. Photo by Harry How/ The Run Game Isn’t Invincible The last two games saw USC’s run game become an absolute force to deal with....

USC Football: Positional Grades vs. Texas

USC Football: Positional Grades vs. Texas

An excellent defensive performance highlights our grades in another Trojan victory The Trojans got all they could handle and then some, but ultimately got a much-needed victory over a scrappy and talented Texas team. Taking the game to the wire in a double-overtime winner, the Trojans’ 27-24 victory brought up a lot of questions for this team moving forward. Not getting ahead of ourselves however, we break down a few key groups with our positional rankings. Quarterback: C Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports This one of Sam Darnold’s worst games as a...

Early Preview—USC and Cal Fight for Early Pac-12 Supremacy in North vs. South Battle

Early Preview—USC and Cal Fight for Early Pac-12 Supremacy in North vs. South Battle

The matchup between two undefeated Pac-12 teams will prove to be another test for the Trojans USC, coming off a victory over the Texas Longhorns (which may have been too close for comfort), now gears its attention towards a Golden Bears squad looking to continue to make some noise in what has been a surprisingly successful season for them thus far. We've seen the Trojans roll against a good Stanford Cardinal team but struggle against teams like Western Michigan and Texas. This Week Four matchup provides us with an opportunity to see if the USC offense can find rhythm against an...

USC defeats Texas in double overtime

USC defeats Texas in double overtime

In their first meeting since 2006, USC defeats Texas in Double OT What a classic game! Many thought this would be a comfortable win for the Trojans but it turned out to be a hard-fought thriller with USC coming out on top. The USC Trojans and Texas Longhorns clashed in their first meeting since that historic Rose Bowl in 2006. Unlike that game 11 years ago, this game was dominated by defense, penalties, 4th down calls, and a wild change of events late in the 2nd quarter, oh and not to mention some 4th quarter heroics. when Texas took a pick six to tie the game, only for USC to score off a...

Conquest Chronicles Staff Predictions: #4 USC Trojans vs Texas Longhorns

With just a few hours to go before a much anticipated matchup, we look into our crystal ball for the results Game Day is upon us and the USC Trojans are looking to solidify their top-five ranking. A convincing victory over the Texas Longhorns will reaffirm their dominance against lesser competition and a few us here at Conquest Chronicles have an idea as to how that’ll happen. Richard: The Trojans will keep rolling on—and it won’t be close. Unlike seasons prior, USC has a balanced offensive attack. Typically the hype the Trojans have attained thus far would eventually derail their...

Staff Predictions: #6 USC Trojans vs #14 Stanford Cardinal

Hope is all we can do, and we REALLY lay down the hope with these predictions USC heads into their second week with hardly any momentum following a narrow victory over unheralded Western Michigan—and are thrown right into fire against #14 Stanford. The Cardinal has consistently had the Trojans number for last couple of seasons, and here’s how a few us at Conquest Chronicles feel this game is gonna go. Richard: This is Sam Darnold’s “Heisman Moment.” I expect him to shake off the miscues from last week and find his open receivers—who REALLY should be open with Ronald Jones II...

Overreactions from the USC vs Western Michigan game

Overreactions from the USC vs Western Michigan game

It was just the first game. Remember those lofty expectations we were talking about last week headed into the Western Michigan matchup? The backlash of that is over reactions to what happens in a single game, even if the game results in a win. It may be unfair, too soon, or crazy, but here are the top three takes from the USC’s showing at face value, then debunking them or maybe seeing why they are true. “Sam Darnold Looked Like A Freshman” - This is only partially true, as he still managed to throw for 289 yards on 23 completions with only 33 attempts. It is not even terrible that he...

USC Football: Keys to a Trojan Victory over #14 Stanford Cardinal

Big adjustments will be needed by Darnold & Co. in USC’s biggest matchup of the season Many folks expected this game against #14 Stanford to be #6 USC’s first big test—however the reality came in the form of the Western Michigan Broncos’ seemingly exploiting the Trojans as they squeezed out a not-so-close 49-31 victory on their opening game. The Cardinal have ha the Trojan’s number for the better part of the 21st century and the writing is on the wall for USC in Saturday’s huge matchup. Not only is early Pac-12 supremacy at stake, but whoever comes out on top gets a huge claim...
