PHOTO: USC home schedule includes "@ UCLA"

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer
Via the Twitter feed of USC beat writer Scott Enyeart, here's the Trojans' pocket "home schedule" being handed out at various spots on campus:

Notice anything, uh, unusual about that "home schedule"? It's got a road game on it--the Nov. 17 visit to the Rose Bowl to take on the Trojans' cross-town rivals at UCLA. To answer your next question, yes: the schedule is the equivalent of the Trojans (or someone associated with them) calling the Rose Bowl, in college football parlance, "our house."

This is some expertly executed subtle-yet-unmistakably-effective smack talk here, and who can blame USC for running its, er, mouth? The Trojans have won the last five in the series, 12 of the past 13 (two vacations notwithstanding), and five of the past six in the Rose Bowl. And, oh yeah, there's that little matter of USC's 50-0 demolition of the Bruins at the Coliseum last year.

So if ever there was a time to talk a little schedule-based trash, now is it.
