USC had an excellent day today against over-ranked Illinois, leading to a big win for USC. They certainly looked like one of the best teams in college football, once again showing the need for some type of playoff system in the NCAA.
The Trojans looked good all day long, with the exception being the number of penalties the Trojans racked up.
It was a beautiful day for a game, not too hot, and even though the game was sold out, traffic in and out of the stadium was not anywhere near as bad as last year. The crowd was, as expected, mostly USC fans, but the Illini had a decent contingent present. Unfortunately they had little to root for as USC commanded the game throughout.
