The Best USC Trojans Players of All Time

List Criteria: Only rank the players on their time at USC

A list of the best USC Trojans players of all time. USC football is one of the most storied programs in the history of college football. When people think of the success of the Pac-8, Pac-10, and now Pac-12, USC football usually at the top of anyone's list as the greatest school to emerge from that conference. USC is one of the winningest football programs in college history and despite the brutal sanctions that were handed down by the NCAA in 2010, the school boasts an impressive 11 national championship along with six Heisman Trophy winners, which doesn't include a seventh, Reggie Bush who won in 2005. The NCAA may have tried to erase Bush from USC history, but anyone who saw the tailback play that year considers him to be one of the greatest players not only in USC football history, but one of the greatest college football players of all time. Many of USC's best players have gone to have successful careers at the next level in the NFL and the roster of NFL stars and Hall of Famers that USC boasts can go toe-to-toe with any other school in the country. Between Marcus Allen, Matt Leinart, Junior Seau, Troy Polamalu, Ronnie Lott, Frank Gifford and so many more, USC sports some of the best college football players ever. Anyone who disputes that is either a USC hate or doesn't know a lot about college football.

This is the list of the greatest USC football players of all time. If you notice any of USC great who isn't listed on here feel free to add him. Vote or re-rank this list according to who you think should be considered the best USC Trojans player ever.
