The Trojans could lose five games this year and it's not really a stretch.
They are 6-2 right now.
They play Oregon next Saturday and I'm going to go out on a limb and predict they are 6-3 after that game.
They close the season with us and Notre Dame. Let's for the moment give them our game, but say they lose to Notre Dame -- who are a top five team. Assuming Notre Dame is the only regular season loss they suffer other than Oregon the rest of the way, that's 8-4.
Then, assume that since they beat us, they are Pac 12 South Champs. They get to go to Oregon and lose to the Ducks again. That's 8-5.
If we beat them and Notre Dame beats them -- and honestly that's not a total stretch, they'd finish the regular season 7-5.
Honestly, I don't think it's a stretch that they lose to Oregon and Notre Dame which gets them to four and then they lost to Oregon again. Yeah, that would be three losses to Top Five teams but still -- Unfinished Business my ass.
