During this time last season, USC was ranked as No.1 some of the polls and no team had more hype behind it than the Trojans.
However, after a 14-21 loss to Stanford in just the third game of the year, it was clear that this wasn't the monster everyone expected it would be the moment Barkley decided to skip the pros and play out his senior year.
When the season was said and done, Barkley was sidelined with an injury, as he watched his team lose five of their last six games including a 7-21 thumping at the hands of Georgia Tech in the Sun Bowl.
It's going to be very interesting to see how this team bounces back after a nightmare season and how they will perform now that there isn't too much expected of them.
Will the Trojans answer the bell and win by more than the projected betting lines? Don't miss this NCAA football 2013: USC vs Hawaii live stream and TV schedule odds game.
