USC head coach Steve Sarkisian, QB Cody Kessler and LB Su'a Cravens wrapped up the final day of Pac-12 Media Days on Friday, which means that USC fall camp is just a week away. The trio of Trojans spent the last two days talking all things USC football with local and national media while also taking some time for fun photo shoots and other promos for different sports networks.
The main focus of the media's questions had to do with the announcement on Thursday that USC had been voted the preseason favorite to win the conference. Kessler, eager to get back on the field, responded by saying, "I'm done with the expectations. I'm done with the hype. I just want to play football."
With all Pac-12 teams in attendance over the last two days, the Trojans were able to eye their competition which will come from all sides this season as the Pac-12 is one of the toughest conferences in college football. According to FPI, USC has the hardest schedule in the conference and the fourth-hardest in the nation. "It's a tough game every week in the Pac-12..." said Cravens. "There's a bullseye on our back no matter what. We're USC."
