USC will have their hands full this season with such a competitive Pac-12 schedule, but can the Trojans conquer their tough schedule?

This season, like always, the Trojans will have a very tough schedule, especially now that the talent level in the Pac-12 is so high.

This season the Trojans will play host to some tough opponents, but their bigger tests this season will come on the road, as the Trojans are set to make trips to Oregon, Notre Dame, and Arizona State.

More from Pac-12

The Trojans will open up their season with some inferior competition in the form of Arkansas State and Idaho, but from there on, the Trojans will have to brace through the gauntlet that is the Pac-12.

The Trojans’ schedule appears difficult on paper and despite the cries from the SEC, the Pac-12 South may be the toughest division in college football, but with Heisman candidate, Cody Kessler leading the offense anything is possible for the USC Trojans, including competing for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Expectations are high for the Trojans and these are the top five games you need to make sure you are watching this year as they could propel USC to the Playoff or see them collapse under the weight of expectations again.
