As of the time of this writing, it looks as if Miller Moss will lead the USC Football offense, with Bear Alexander, Easton Mascarenas-Arnold, and Kamari Ramsey leading the new-look Trojans defense.

Aside from a new head coach, the Michigan Wolverines will look very different as well with a new QB under center, and new pieces at RB and WR. They also lost a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball to the NFL Draft. In all, Michigan had 13 players drafted in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Michigan Wolverines have the 19th-ranked 2024 recruiting class, and currently have the 80th-ranked transfer portal class, according to 247 Sports.

With a historical record of 6-4 against the Wolverines, the Trojans last triumphed over them in the 2007 Rose Bowl with a 32-18 victory.

Looking ahead, USC will host six home games in the 2024 season. The Coliseum will see league opponents Wisconsin, Penn State, Rutgers, and Nebraska, along with non-conference rivals Utah State and Notre Dame. On the road, the Trojans will take on Michigan, Minnesota, Maryland, Washington, and UCLA.
