Who is the ultimate chess master?

LOS ANGELES -- Legendary chess master Bobby Fischer once said, "Chess is war on a board and the object is to crush the other man's mind."

Former USC offensive coordinator and first-year Utah offensive coordinator Norm Chow is returning to the Coliseum on Saturday with the intention of crushing the 2011 Trojan defense, and there are those still convinced that Chow is the Fischer of the college football play-calling world.

Chow's chessboard Saturday afternoon will be the hallowed turf of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a venue in which he helped establish immortal Trojan offenses during the Pete Carroll era.
