Countdown to Kickoff: 88 Days

Representing 88 on our countdown is former USC quarterback Rodney Peete. In 1988 Peete became the first USC quarterback to win the Johnny Unitas Award, awarded to the nation's best senior quarterback. Peete led USC to two consecutive Rose Bowl appearances and two consecutive victories over fucla. Rodney can now be seen nightly on Fox Sports' Best Damn Sports Show Period.

Fight On!

And a bonus, 1988 also marks the last time the Dodgers won a World Series title. Who can forget Kirk Gibson's homerun, and Vin Scully's call:
"High fly ball into right field, she is gone!"
