Previewing USC vs Alabama

At the same time that Alabama has slowly been adopting their personnel to be better suited to handling spread attacks in addition to "ground and pound" approaches from big SEC squads, they get to open their season against another school undergoing a similar transition in USC.

The Trojans are still emphasizing a downhill running game, but like Alabama they are adding RPO constraints to their offensive system while also updating their defense to handle spread attacks. No doubt Saban and the Tide are further along in this transition towards modern "best practices" for bluechip programs but that doesn't mean USC isn't a formiddable challenge.
