Sports SCene: Football Tackles No. 3 Utah; Lamar Dawson In-Studio

USC football looks to continue its momentum up north vs Cal and women's soccer wraps up its home schedule with a perfect weekend.

It's Halloween week and we’re hitting the midway point of the football season with the Trojans are coming off a huge win over Utah. Hosts Connor McGlynn and Kristen Lago have their keys to the game and get you ready for the Trojans trip up to Cal in what should be a fun shootout.

Two of those key players leading each team for the Halloween matchup will be quarterbacks Cody Kessler and Jared Goff. Paolo Uggetti joins Connor at the monitor to take an in-depth look at each team’s leader under center and what their weaknesses are.

The Trojans need to win out in order to have a shot at the Pac-12, but injuries since the game against Washington have plagued this team’s depth. Jackson Safon gets you caught up with who’s out, who’s in and who is still hurting in this suddenly-depleted squad.

With players suffering from injuries, it’s been up to leaders like linebacker Lamar Dawson to step up. Dawson joins Connor in-studio for an interview to talk everything from Trojan football to yes, even his favorite Halloween costumes and candy.

To the pitch we then go, as Kristen is joined by Jodee Sullivan to talk about the USC women’s soccer team recent success and how they are faring heading down the stretch of Pac-12 play. Who have been the standouts for the Women of Troy?

Social media was buzzing this week, and Hailey Tucker is here to give you the funniest pictures and tweets from the week around USC sports. Savannah Ajar follows it up with our weekly look around Troy in women’s volleyball and men’s water polo.

Finally, in the spirit of the holiday, our staff picks their Top 5 Halloween candies. Agree or disagree?
