The view from outside Aloha Stadium, with obligatory rainbow
Pre-game view from the field level of Aloha Stadium
3 hours, 30 minutes before kickoff: I'll be providing periodic updates from the USC sideline. It's about that time...
2 hours, 30 minutes before kickoff: Trojans en route to Aloha Stadium.
"Police Escort" would be a good nickname for a fullback. They sure know how to a clear a path.
2 hours before kickoff: Pullin into the stadium. Trojans fans are representing.
1 hour, 45 minutes before kickoff: Trojans getting taped, dressed and focused inside the locker room. Alotta headphones...
45 minutes before kickoff: USC's captains have a "C" on their jersey to signify their leadership role. That's new to Kiffin era.
20 minutes before kickoff: The horn sounds a final Trojan retreat before the return from the locker room with bad intentions
10 minutes before kickoff: Former American Idol contestant singing American and Hawaiian anthems
2 minutes before kickoff: Game on. Now, the tip of the spear...
13:07: On 3rd down, "Sharks up." Team in unison, "Sharks." And the fins go up...
10:07: Can't manufacture adrenaline. I cannot tell you how many times I've seen them execute that 2 point play to perfection.
6:33: Check out 6'7" Matt Kalil on the field goal block team. He'll swat one away eventually.
1:38: Two drives, two Matt Barkley TD passes. Also, true to his word, Kiffin has stuck with one primary ball carrier, Marc Tyler.
7:27: Bend but don't break defensively so far. Expect more pass rush in the 2nd half when O-line wears down.
1:06: Joe Houston has to be the happiest person in the stadium. Finally, an extra point! Great answer drive with J. Cameron showing up as a weapon
- Just guessing, but pass defense particularly the pass rush will be a topic A at halftime.
Final: USC 49, Hawaii 36
Thanks to all who followed tonight. Glad to go home with a win, and happy to see the Lane Kiffin era of USC offense back in full-force! Fight On!
