Coaches position USC at No. 4

USC Trojans football, Traveler, Coliseum
“Four” appeared to be Southern California’s magic number throughout the preseason.  With several magazines releasing their early versions of college football’s top 25, the Trojans were most often found in that fourth spot.  The USA Today’s official 2009 preseason poll was released today, and with no surprise, USC is again positioned at No. 4.

The Trojans received one first place vote and trail Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida in the opening poll.  They are joined by Cal, Oregon, and Oregon State of the Pac 10, and the out of conference scheduling of Ohio State and Notre Dame gives USC five opponents represented in the poll.
