The numbers are overwhelming: Eleven national championships (and counting). Twenty-eight bowl victories, including 21 wins in the Granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl. Seven Heisman Trophy winners. Dozens of All-Americans. Countless statistical milestones.
But the numbers alone don't do justice to the impact that USC football has had and continues to have on its legion of fans. What takes place within the storied confines of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is more than simply a game; it's a way of life.
Trojan All-American Manfred Moore puts it this way in the foreword to this book: "In 1969, as a high school recruit, I visited the campus of USC, and as an 18-year old looking up at the Tommy Trojan statue on campus, touching the two Heisman Trophies and then meeting and talking with Mike Garrett and hearing him, as he looked into my eyes, tell me, ‘Once a Trojan, always a Trojan!!!' that sealed the deal for me."
Game Day USC Football is a celebration of that tradition, and of the decades of gridiron excellence that have inspired it.
