USC moves up to No. 8 in USA TODAY Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll – Trojans Wire

The USC Trojans, at the start of 2022, are No. 8 in the USA TODAY Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll.

The Trojans moved from No. 9 to No. 8 after Iowa State lost to Baylor this past weekend.

It has been a weird yet positive year for USC on the hardwood.

Andy Enfield got an extension. USC is 12-0. That’s the great news.

The not-so-great news: The Trojans haven’t played since Dec. 18. Their pre-Christmas Oklahoma State game was canceled due to COVID-19 issues.

The Trojans’ program has been paused due to COVID-19 problems. Stanford is also having trouble. Various other Pac-12 teams are rescheduling games. Two rare Monday games have been scheduled as makeup games: Colorado at Oregon and Washington at Arizona.

Speaking of Arizona, the Wildcats and UCLA are both still ahead of USC in the poll, giving the Pac-12 three top-10 teams.

We will let you know when USC next plays a game. Right now everything is up in the air.
