USC entered the weekend as a favorite to take home the Pac-12 crown, but those ambitions suffered a huge blow with Saturday's home loss to Stanford. To add to the disconcerting loss, TMZreports that a pair of Trojan players decided to "fight on"...with each other in the locker room after the game.
Trouble in Troy ... with 2 USC football players BLOWING UP on each other after the Stanford game -- with multiple coaches and players rushing in to break up the altercation ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Multiple sources tell us... the incident went down as the team was in the tunnel at the Coliseum heading to the locker room after losing to Stanford 41-31 on Saturday night.
We're told there was yelling and pushing between the two players -- and they each had to be physically restrained.
On the bright side, Kevin Sumlin hasn't accidentally tweeted any jokes about the alleged incident yet, so that's good. With games against Arizona State and Notre Dame over the next three weeks, Steve Sarkisian, who has already been the subject of controversy this season, needs to reel his team in, and fast.
