Despite their mediocre season, USC is one of highest profile Pac-12 teams - so a loss to a 6-7 Georgia Tech team would certainly be a black eye.
This has much of the same feel as our infamous 2004 Holiday Bowl debacle. USC expected to be NC contenders and are now in the Holiday Bowl. Of course the big difference is that Cal had really earned a Rose Bowl bid and got screwed out of it whereas USC didn't earn a spot in the NC.
It'll be interesting to see if the Trojans show up or just phone it in.
