USC Morning Buzz, Part II

USC visits Cal’s Memorial Stadium for the first time since it reopened last year following extensive renovations. The reception will be better than the Trojans’ first trip in 1924.

Before that game, the USC graduate manager was informed by a Cal official that neither the Bears nor Stanford would be playing USC anymore.

“We don’t like your university,” the USC official was told.

USC played Cal that day anyway but canceled its game with Stanford, scheduled for the following week. St. Mary’s was the substitute opponent and upset the Trojans, 14-10.

USC only lost two games that year but Coach Elmer Henderson was fired. At the time, Cal and Stanford were the only teams that would draw large crowds to the new Coliseum and losing the Bay Area teams was partly blamed Henderson. USC then hired Howard Jones, who became one of the most successful coaches in school history with four national titles

    Interesting how far college football has come with schedules contracted out years ahead and TV controlling the schedule, how funny a game would just be cancelled for next week, a simpler era.
