Time for the Trojans to bring on the Tide

If you’re a longtime USC fan from the baby boomer generation, your memory is probably still intact enough to remember the great home-and-home football series between the Trojans and the Alabama Crimson Tide back in 1970-71.

To best describe that two-game series, just think of legendary college football voice Keith Jackson bellowing out a “Whoa, Nellie!”

Although a lad in my very early 20s at the time, it’s still very easy to recall the games featuring legendary coaches John McKay and Paul “Bear” Bryant. Both games were about as high drama as a college football fan could ask for and each game had significance.
