It’s the big reunion week for Justin Wilcox and USC. So here’s the classic photo of Wilcox from when he coached at USC. But Wilcox is 3-0 and has the Bears playing defense. So this might just be a trap game. Look at some history:
This Saturday Cal will wear throwback uniforms to honor its great QB, Joe Roth. The first Joe Roth memorial game was 40 years ago against USC (1977). It was the first sell out of a USC-Cal game since 1951 and an unranked Cal team beat No.10-ranked USC, 17-14.
Cal has defeated an AP Top-5 ranked USC team in Berkeley only twice. The first time, in 1975, John McKay’s last trip to Memorial Stadium, the Cal QB was Joe Roth. The last time was that triple overtime game in 2003, which was also the last time the Bears beat the Trojans.
