Clay Helton's 2016 USC Trojans team notched the program's first top-three finish in the final Associated Press poll since the 2008 season.
That team's lack of a conference title or national championship precludes it from being listed among the best USC teams. But that leads to the question: What are the greatest Trojans teams of all time?

The 2017 Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Rankings mean more in recent years as the NFL passing game continues to become more important.
Football season is finally upon us and with that it’s time to break down each Power Five conference in different categories as well as make some bold predictions. Today we continue with the Pac-12.Pac-12 North Champ
Washington. Stanford will be tough but is a year away from taking back the North while Washington still has all the elements needed to make a run at the College Football Playoff. The regular-season schedule actually looks quite easy aside from Stanford, Utah and Washington State to end the season, but I still think it loses a couple games.Pac-12 South Champ
USC. Big things are expected of quarterback Sam Darnold and USC, but the schedule isn’t as easy as it looks. Stanford will be tough, Texas will be improved and Washington State, Utah, Notre Dame, Colorado and even UCLA could present challenges. The Trojans win the South over UCLA (not Utah) but could lose a couple on the way.Pac-12 Champion
USC. The Trojans take the title but miss the playoff if Oklahoma State puts up the year I think it will. If the Big 12 gets left out of the playoff again, the Trojans will be the team.Coach of the Year
Jim Mora, UCLA. What? Yep, UCLA rebounds from an awful season to eight wins or so and Mora wins it for the turnaround. Of course this only happens if quarterback Josh Rosen stays healthy.Hot Seat City
Todd Graham, Arizona State. He could be gone by the end of the season, especially if the defense doesn’t improve. ASU gave up 40 or more points in eight of 12 games last year and it the Sun Devils don’t cut that in half, watch out.Biggest Surprise
Oregon. Washington, Stanford and Washington State are predicted to finish higher than the Ducks, who are only ahead of Oregon State and Cal in the North Division. I don’t see Oregon making a push toward the top of the division, but they can perhaps make a bowl game this season, something few expect.Biggest Disappointment
Utah. The Utes are expected to be the biggest competition for USC in their division but they struggle this season with a difficult schedule. They have four Top 25 teams on the schedule, a game against BYU and any additional upset could lead to a seven- or eight-win season instead of nine or 10 most expect.As Expected
Washington State. Mike Leach’s team will put up big numbers offensively, he will call out his team at least twice and the defense will let him down once again. Seven or eight wins is possible and it will be fun to watch, but I don’t see WSU taking the next step.A Year Away
Stanford. The quarterback situation improves greatly next year and the offensive line could be the best in the Pac-12 by 2018 as well. Stanford’s recruiting the last few years has been awesome, quarterback Davis Mills could be special at a young age and the power offensive attack could wear down the conference.Building for the Future
Oregon. The recruiting is off the charts for 2018 and 2019 under Willie Taggart this year hitting Florida, Texas and California among other states. If he can continue to recruit at this level, the Ducks will be back in a couple of years.Conference Offensive MVP
Jake Browning, Washington. Browning might not put up as many touchdowns as he did last year with a few key losses on offense, but I fully expect another 3,000-yard year with 35 or so touchdowns and fewer than 10 interceptions, which should be enough to outduel Darnold.Conference Defensive MVP
Cameron Smith, USC. Vita Vea, Iman Marshall and some others are higher ranked in my Farrell50 but I don’t think they will have the stats to surpass Smith if he stays healthy. Vea frees up everyone else and Marshall could be avoided by many offenses while Smith could approach 100 solo tackles.Best NFL Prospect
Sam Darnold, USC. The No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft if he comes out? There’s a good chance of that. Rosen is up here as well but his personality and outspoken nature will allow him to slide a bit more than Darnold.Conference True Freshman of the Year
Jaelan Phillips, UCLA. Phillips is a freaky athlete who is still learning how to be a natural end, but his instincts and length and hustle will allow him to make some amazing plays and be featured more than a few times on SportsCenter.Conference Breakout Player
Bryce Love, Stanford. Love already has 180 yards and a score in his first game this season, and efforts like that should continue as he replaces Christian McCaffrey. He could lead the conference in rushing.
The 1998 USC Trojans football team represented the University of Southern California (USC) in the 1998 NCAA Division I-A football season. In their first year under head coach Paul Hackett, the Trojans compiled an 8-5 record (5–3 against conference opponents), finished in a tie for third place in the Pacific-10 Conference (Pac-10), and outscored their opponents by a combined total of 346 to 241. 
This was Paul Hackett's inaugural year as head coach as the Trojans head coach as well as his only winning season and bowl appearance with the team. It was also the Trojans' 75th anniversary playing at the Coliseum.
After three wins, including an opener against Purdue in the Pigskin Classic, USC was ranked as high as 18 in the AP Poll, but lost two of its next three and dropped out of the rankings permanently.
During halftime of the game against UCLA, 91-year-old USC "Super Fan" Giles Pellerin died while watching his 797th consecutive USC football game. 
Quarterback Carson Palmer led the team in passing, completing 130 of 235 passes for 1,755 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Chad Morton led the team in rushing with 199 carries for 985 yards and six touchdowns. R. Jay Soward led the team in receiving yards with 44 catches for 679 yards and six touchdowns; Billy Miller also had 49 catches for 623 yards and six touchdowns.
