LOS ANGELES (AP) The heat is on for No. 17 Southern California.
Morning practices are not early enough to allow the Trojans to avoid a September heat wave during their bye week, and those temperatures have paled in comparison to the blistering criticism following their 37-31 loss at Boston College.
After going toe-to-toe with Stanford and its punishing offensive line the previous week, USC (2-1) looked positively baffled by the Eagles' option attack. BC rushed for 452 yards, with quarterback Tyler Murphy accounting for 191 yards and one touchdown.
