Looking back, who would have thought that a tiny school founded by the Methodist Church would emerge to become one of the top football powers in the country?
There have been so many accomplishments in these 1,000-plus games: 11 national titles, 6 Heisman Trophy winners, 33 Rose Bowls and 163 All-Americans. Trojan football history is packed with heroic moments and legendary names.
The names are etched clearly in our memories: Gloomy Gus. The Thundering Herd. John McKay. Iron Mike. And the famous games still resonate: the twin comebacks versus Notre Dame, the recurring nail-biters against UCLA, the triumphant Rose Bowls.
