USC Football’s offense has been firing on all cylinders through two weeks, running like a well-oiled machine despite all the turnover and newcomers on that side of the ball.

With a wide array of weapons via the transfer portal and Lincoln Riley calling plays, should we be surprised at how seamlessly the transition seems to have been to this point?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by the host of ‘Locked On Trojans,’ Marc Culkin, to assess how USC has performed through two weeks under Lincoln Riley.

We also discuss the biggest surprise in the Conference through the first two weeks and how it might play out going forward.

With USC playing like a Pac-12 Championship contender this year, which team seems like the biggest threat to the Trojans right now?
