During the game, the Trojans lost T Chuma Edoga due to an ankle injury and G Viane Talamaivao to a pectoral issue. The team also lost LB Jordan Iosefa and WR Jalen Greene before the game and RB Stephen Carr, DL Malike Dorton and DL Rasheem Green during the game.
The Trojans schedule does them no favors as they will play their entire schedule without a bye week. The Trojans lone by of the season comes during Thanksgiving weekend, after they’ve completed their 12-game schedule. The Trojans would be able to use that week as a true bye if they are in the Pac-12 Championship game.
USC will host Oregon State at the Coliseum next Saturday at 1 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Network.
