It's never a good thing to be the team that plays an opponent the week after said opponent suffers a disastrous loss. Pity the USC Trojans! Not only did the Trojans have this going against them, USC also has not won the last three times they've played the Beavers in Reser Stadium. Most famously, in 2008, the Beavs beat then-No. 1 USC at home in Reser, a giant upset.

Denise's ticket was in the student section again. All of her friends were busy that night, so she was sitting by herself. We promised to let her know of any empty seats near us, hopeful she could join us at halftime.

During the final minutes of the game, the crowd began to chant "beat the Ducks!" The Civil War is two weeks away. After last week's game, I figured the Ducks would kill us in the Civil War. But if the Beavs play the way they did tonight, I think we might stand a chance.
