LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ed Orgeron restored fun to Southern California football over the last six weeks, and his Trojans are revitalized.
With four wins in five games under the interim coach, USC (7-3, 4-2 Pac-12) has managed to stay in the Pac-12 South race.
Marqise Lee says the talented Trojans are playing loose and enjoying themselves - but their next opponent isn't much fun for anyone.
No. 5 Stanford (8-1, 6-1) is just two wins away from hosting the Pac-12 title game for the second straight season. The Cardinal cemented their spot atop the league by beating Oregon last week, and they've had extra days of preparation for their visit to the Coliseum.
Orgeron and the Trojans are well aware of the challenge presented by the powerful Rose Bowl champions.
