With the current pandemic going on, LA county recently announced that it would extend its stay-at-home orders for another three months. That plan runs the risk of USC not being able to hold workouts and be ready for a 2020 season. 

Even before that announcement came out there were already rumors that the USC vs. Alabama season opener in Arlington, Texas would not happen. The matchup would’ve been big for college football as many across the nation would’ve tuned in to watch. Other rumors have also surfaced that Alabama was already looking for alternate games to replace their matchup against USC if it were to not happen. One of those was supposedly a matchup against TCU. 

Upon hearing of all the rumors surfacing, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum decided to take a jab at USC and head coach Clay Helton while appearing on Get Up.

“That game is not going to be played. It’s hard for me to believe that if the county of Los Angeles is going to be shut down for the next couple of months that Southern Cal will be ready to play that game. And quite frankly I don’t think Clay Helton wants to play that game anyway because he’s going to get run over badly.”

Alabama’s Athletic Director Greg Byrne has come out to say that there hasn’t been a decision that the game will be played or not and has reached out to USC AD Mike Bohn to downplay any rumors of an alternate matchup. 

Whether or not the speculations are true, USC is in danger of not being ready for a 2020 season opener due to the recent extension of the stay-at-home orders. If the matchup is indeed unable to happen and USC does play a Pac-12 season only, then it could be very favorable to them.
