If USC beats Oregon on November 3rd and then Oregon climbs back up the last month before the Pac 12 championship game...that's going to do wonders for USC if they beat them again.
Not to mention November 24th - Notre Dame. If Notre Dame has only 1-loss or is (gasp) undefeated...USC would be home free if they beat them on National TV and then beat Oregon again. Hello BCS title game as long as everyone else isn't undefeated.
USC will play probably all ranked teams the last four weeks.
I think it's all moot though because these teams are pretty damn good and USC just isn't that great...and will have trouble winning half of their remaining games.
