There's talk of a major head college football coach being in his final days following his program's brutal loss today.

USC head coach Clay Helton came into this afternoon's game against UCLA on the hot seat, with the Trojans needing one win over their final two games to be bowl eligible.

They didn't get it.

USC was upset by UCLA, as the Trojans fell to 5-6 on the season.

Now, there's talk of Helton not surviving the season. Many are calling for him to be fired following today's loss. It's tough to argue with that, too.

USC has Notre Dame next weekend, which means another loss by the Trojans is probably coming.

Stay tuned.
