USC head coach Clay Helton's seat is burning hot right now. The Trojans' 3-3 start to the season didn't do him any favors. But USC is 4-1 over its last five games and up to No. 23 in the latest College Football Playoff top 25. Helton and the Trojans will look to build that momentum on Saturday against UCLA.
This hasn't been the season most Trojans fans were hoping for. But the team has a chance to finish the regular season with eight wins, a feat which didn't seem possible at the halfway point of the season. UCLA hopes to spoil USC's day at the Coliseum on Saturday.
The Chip Kelly experiment has shown signs of promise this year. But the Bruins sit at 4-6 and must win their final two games to become bowl game eligible. The USC-UCLA rivalry always brings surprises, and Kelly will most surely have a few tricks up his sleeve against the Trojans.
