08:23 AM ET 12.31 | A season that went sideways at Southern Cal may come to an even more frustrating conclusion in El Paso Monday at the Hyundai Sun Bowl. The status of two of USC's top position players is unknown for Monday's game, a scary thought for the Trojans when combined with Barkley's absence. Receiver Marqise Lee reportedly went down with a knee injury early in USC's Saturday practice and did not return, and Curtis McNeal has missed bowl practices with an undisclosed injury. It would still qualify a significant surprise if Lee did not suit up, considering he was walking without much trouble later Saturday. As long as he plays, Monday's game should be another opportunity for Lee to showcase his incredible abilities in front of a national audience.

Most of us would get a nastygram from the mods if we did.

OT just reminded me of something. Me thinks the last time USC played in the Sun Bowl (and didn't want to be there) they ended up losing to a 6-5 TCU team.

Maybe a 6-7 Ga Tech team will win.

Yes, I agree GT could very well win this game. IMO there is way too many bowl games and more than half are mismatch games!!!

I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, and a hell of an engineer
A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer.
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear.
I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.
Oh! If I had a daughter, sir, I'd dress her in White and Gold,
And put her on the campus to cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do???
He would yell, 'To hell with Georgia!' like his daddy used to do.
Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum and sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in and a clapper to stir it round.
I'd drink to all the good fellows who come from far and near.
I'm a ramblin', gamblin', hell of an engineer!

I agree but the Sun Bowl is not one of the new fly by night money generating for the officals bowl games. Second oldest of the bowls along with the Sugar and Orange...all of which are behind the Rose Bowl I believe.

This one has to be the most honest lyrics describing college life of any fight song.

Personally, I enjoy that "To hell with Georgia!" part a helluva lot. No offense, hairy Dawg fans, it comes with the UF degree.

..and of course, a Gator would ally with a Ramblin Wreck.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Yeah, but even the Rose Bowl this year is a real yawner!!!
