Soccer Saturday: USC Beats Bruins

The Trojans beat the Bruins 2-1 in a come-from-behind victory Friday in Texas and will meet Florida State at 11:30 a.m. Sunday on ESPN2 for the national championship.

“We get measured on national championships at USC,” said first-year Coach Ali Khosroshahin. “Until we do that this means nothing.”

Which is exactly what he said after the Florida game at the Coliseum a couple of weeks back. Wonder if the ex-Cal State Fullerton coach is going to need a new sound bite after Sunday?

Almost as important though: USC snapped an 11-game winless streak against the Bruins again using its smothering defense against the much-vaunted, high-powered UCLA offense.

Here’s the game story.
