Details: The University of Southern California has one of the most successful football programs in the country. USC has been to 54 bowl games throughout its history. This full-color book chronicles each and every one of the Trojans' 35 bowl victories, from the 1923 Rose Bowl in the very first game played at the Rose Bowl Stadium, to the highest-scoring regulation game in Rose Bowl history in 2017. Stories in the book include: The standoff between Penn State and USC's head coaches in the 1923 Rose Bowl; the shutout against a highly-hyped Pitt team in the 1933 Rose Bowl; the shootout against Wisconsin in the 1963 Rose Bowl; O.J. Simpson carrying the team to victory against Indiana in the 1968 Rose Bowl; Sam Cunningham's four touchdowns in the 1973 Rose Bowl; John McKay's gutsy two-point conversion gamble in the 1975 Rose Bowl; John McKay's final game with USC in the 1975 Liberty Bowl; a crazy high-scoring shootout in the 1977 Bluebonnet Bowl; the "phantom touchdown" in the 1979 Rose Bowl; Ricky Ervins saving the day in the 1990 Rose Bowl; a tidal wave of points against Texas Tech in the 1995 Cotton Bowl;; a wild ride of back-and-forth momentum swings against Northwestern in the 1996 Rose Bowl; Carson Palmer's brilliance in the 2003 Orange Bowl; Matt Leinart leading the team to back-to-back national titles in the 2004 Rose Bowl and 2005 Orange Bowl; John David Booty and Mark Sanchez at the helm of three straight Rose Bowl champions from 2007 to 2009; the highest-scoring regulation game in Rose Bowl history in 2017; and many more!
