Presenting the War Room

This week in the Happy Holidays edition of the War Room we dispel a Rose Bowl eligibility rumor, give you the latest on recruiting and plenty more.

More details of what is inside:

  • Will everyone be eligible to participate in the Rose Bowl on January 2?
  • There are a couple of new out of state defensive back prospects the Trojans are pursuing.
  • Lane Kiffin hired away support staff superstar Keynodo Hudson and now the Trojans need to respond with another great hire to help recruiting.
  • Trojan rush end Porter Gustin has been a warrior this season playing through pain.
  • No surprise that a ticket to the Rose Bowl is more in demand than either of the College Football Playoff semifinal games.
  • USC basketball is 12-0 despite some key injuries.
  • Plus plenty more!
