Home, Sweet Home

Only 19 points were scored on the Trojans at the Coliseum this year. In 86 seasons at the Coliseum, only twice did USC teams gave up fewer points, both National Championship years: 1939 (14 points in six games), and 1932 (7 points in 7 games).
The 1962 National Champions allowed only 19 points in 5 Coliseum home games, and 22 in 6 Coliseum games (including the UCLA match, in which UCLA was the home team).
The 1952 PCC Champions allowed 13 points in 6 Coliseum home games, and 25 points in the 7 games they played at the Coliseum.
Most years, the Trojans give up at least 19 or more points in at least one game. In fact, since 1940, the Trojans have kept all home opponents under 19 or more points in only seven seasons: 1948, 1952, 1962, 1982, 1989, 2004, and, now, 2008.
