Trojans to the Orange Bowl

The USC Trojans will head to Miami for the Orange Bowl and a match-up with the Iowa Hawkeyes on January 2nd.

Most bowl projections had USC headed to the Sugar Bowl for a game against Georgia and Trojan fans were busy checking hotel reservations with thoughts of New Years Eve in the Big Easy.  Trojan coaches and athletic department staff were talking until late Sunday morning that New Orleans was the destination but a late hour development within the BCS resulted in USC being paired with Iowa in what could be the most competitive match-up of the bowl series. 

The Orange Bowl will be played on January 2nd, 2003 at 8pm (EST).
