Best Answer

USC or as some people say, University of South Carolina, got it's name by "borrowing" it from the first USC, aka, University of Southern California. They say it was "borrowing" the name but according to University of Southern California it wasn't, and it's easy to see because they later on were charged with a lawsuit against them for stealing the name.

How did the usc Trojans get there name?

USC was competing against Stanford in a track & field meet. They were losing by a lot, and it was calculated to be impossible for them to win, but the Trojans fought hard and only lost by a small amount at the conclusion of the meet. Owen Bird, of the Los Angeles Times, stated that the USC athletes "fought on like Trojans." President Bovard approved this as the official name.
