Legendary film director Steven Spielberg was on hand at USC, which is considered by many to have the top film program in the country, earlier this week to speak to a group of students. Naturally, students had a lot of questions to ask about his experiences and how he managed to advance his career to the point where he is worth roughly $3 billion.
At some point during his Q&A, Spielberg decided to showcase his knowledge of sports. In particular, he let everyone know that he still keeps tabs on the Trojans after receiving an honorary degree from USC in 1994.
Steven Spielberg was at #USC today. He was asked his favorite disaster movie and said, “The Washington State game.''

Burned. For those of you who don’t get the reference, USC lost an embarrassing 10-7 game to Washington State in its first home game of the season a few weeks ago. During the loss, fans busted out a very audible “Fire Kiffin!” chant to express their disgust with head coach Lane Kiffin.
Well, done Spielberg. Well done, indeed.
