USC likes chances of hosting Pac-12 title game enough to start selling tickets

This might end up catching some attention around the Pac-12.

USC appears to be selling Pac-12 Championship Game tickets to season-ticket holders in case the Trojans host the game at the Los Angeles Coliseum, according to an advertisement posted on reddit. A glance at the schedule shows that USC has played all of three Pac-12 games, and doesn't lead its division. USC is 2-1 in conference games, a half game behind 2-0 Arizona State.

There's planning ahead and then there's presumption that borders on arrogance, and we're not sure which side of the line USC is on here. Fans of other Pac-12 teams will likely have an opinion on that.

While some forward thinking by USC's ticket department is far different than something like Lane Kiffin guaranteeing his team will host the title game as the top seed in the Pac-12, it still seems a bit premature (obviously if the Trojans do not play in the Pac-12 title game or have to travel to somewhere like Eugene for that game, then money will be refunded. And, Oregon has done something similar, so it's not like USC is alone on this).

It'll be really interesting how much attention the sales pitch gets if Washington beats USC this week, right before those tickets go on sale to the general public on Oct. 19.
