Dropping journeys to Oregon State doomed potential title runs in 2006 and 2008. The Beavers created 4 turnovers to upend the third-ranked Trojans in 2006. Two years later, USC was ranked No. 1 when Oregon State’s Jacquizz Rodgers overpowered its protection, dealing the Trojans their solely lack of 2008. Their subsequent defeat at Oregon State, in 2010, would mark the low level in that season too.

Since 2000, USC is a mere 3-4 in Corvallis.

This may most likely be its final likelihood to even the rating. With USC off to the Huge Ten in 2024, preserving the Trojans’ legacy in Corvallis isn’t prone to be excessive on the precedence record for scheduling.
