USC brought their A game and got more breaks, Illinois brought their B game with less breaks.Who ever called all those running play's in the first half should be fired. They had there chances, and didn't cash in early, and that's what cost them the game. A defense can only keep you afloat for a short time. Good job defense, you gave it your all. You laid the hits on USC. For those sissies on offense, you could have played tougher.
USC is the better team, how could they not with the ridiculous amount of talent they bring to the field? But Illinois had a bad day. Hence, a really bad game to watch on Tuesday.
