With players like Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart, and coaches including Pete Carroll and Ed Orgeron, there’s been plenty of big USC football wins this millennium. Here’s the 30 biggest.
From championship bouts to upset victories, USC football has generated more than 150 wins since the turn of the century.
Here’s a look at the 30 best Trojan victories since 2000:
30. USC 70, Arkansas 17 (2005)
The 2005 Trojans were known as one of the most explosive offensives in recent college football history. But it was their game against Arkansas that would set the gold standard for how good they could be.
USC scored a whopping 70 points, the most ever by a Pete Carroll coached team. They didn’t take long doing it either, scoring 28 points and amassing 246 yards on just eight plays in the first quarter spanning 1:32 of possession.
That early onslaught included a 76-yard Reggie Bush touchdown run, in which he broke through a hole in the line and scampered the distance untouched.
In total, USC finished with 745 yards of total offense, had three quarterbacks throw touchdowns and held elite Arkansas tailback Darren McFadden to just 88 yards.
The two teams would meet a year later in Fayetteville, with the Trojans generating an equally impressive win over the Razorbacks.
