Sports SCene: Football Gears Up for Oregon, Brianna Barrett In-Studio

Football gears up for Oregon as the hunt for the PAC-12 South title is in their reach. Meanwhile, men's and women's basketball stays perfect. 

Winter season is fast approaching, and Sport Scene is still in full motion. On this week’s episode hosts Jodee Storm Sullivan and Kristen Lago get you ready for the Trojans’ trip to Oregon, as they try to make it five wins in a row. From a look at how USC now controls their destiny in the South, to what injuries will have an impact moving forward, we have all you need to get ready for the final road game of the season. 

For an in-depth look at how USC’s run game and run defense compares to Oregon’s, Paolo Uggetti joins Jodee to talk about Ronald Jones and Royce Freeman, as well as how this game will all but certainly be a high-scoring affair. 

Basketball season is here, and USC Women’s basketball star Briana Barrett is in-studio with Kristen for an interview on her career thus far and what the Women of Troy’s outlook and potential is this year. 

We stay on the Galen Center court for a look at a record-breaking performance by USC women’s volleyball player Samantha Bricio. The talented Bricio recently broke the all-time kills record, and Jodee Sullivan has more on all the senior has accomplished in her amazing career as a USC athlete. 

The talented Women of Troy were making noise everywhere this past weekend, and nowhere was that more evident than on the soccer pitch. Josh Cohen joins Kristen to discuss the team’s thrilling playoff victory and where they will head to in the next round. 

For more on the rest of USC sports currently in-season, Alexa Palermo has all your updates on men’s and women’s diving, women’s basketball and men’s basketball in this week’s iteration of Lighting the Torch. 

Social media was abuzz this weekend with plenty of tweets and pictures from some of USC’s top athletes, and Ben Albert has compiled them all for your convenience in a very entertaining social media update of the week. 

And finally, we top off the show with a great look at President Max Nikias’ trip to Colorado for the Trojans’ Friday night game. The man himself documented his trek to the high altitudes of Boulder, via Instagram, where he saw the Trojans emerge victorious.
