Urban Meyer was in the building on Friday night for what some people thought could be one of Clay Helton's final home games at USC. The Trojans were hosting No. 10 Utah and a loss might've put one of the final nails into Helton's coffin in Southern California.

Instead, USC pulled off a massive upset win.

The Trojans took down the Utes, 30-23, at home on Friday night.

Meyer, who has been mentioned constantly for the potentially-vacant USC job, had a message for the coach many want him to replace.

"Good job."

The Meyer-to-USC rumors won't be going away anytime soon, though Helton helped quiet them - temporarily, at least - on Friday night.

The Trojans improved to 3-1 on the season with the win, though the schedule isn't getting any easier.

USC travels to No. 22 Washington next Saturday before heading to No. 7 Notre Dame on Oct. 12.
