USC is hoping that its 35-7 victory over Boston College translates into a larger crowd for Saturday's game against Utah State.
A week after fans at the Coliseum booed Lane Kiffin during a 10-7 loss to Washington State, USC drew an announced crowd of 62,006 for a noon kickoff against Boston College. It was the Trojans' smallest home crowd since Oct. 1, 2011, when they defeated Arizona, 48-41, before an announced crowd of 63,707.
The Trojans kick off against Utah State at 12:30 p.m.
Last season, despite losing four of its last five regular-season games, USC's average attendance was 87,945 at the Coliseum. It was the highest average since 2006, when USC established a Pac-12 Conference record of 91,480.
The Trojans last season drew an announced 93,607 against Hawaii, Oregon and Notre Dame.
USC has home games remaining against Utah State, Arizona, Utah, Stanford and UCLA.
