USC Trojans win in walk off fashion against Texas Longhorns

USC's defense entered 2017 looking to replace a few key cogs from last year's group. If the season continues to play out the way it has early, that Oklahoma versus Oklahoma State game later in the year is going to be epic.

So when the architect of USC's return to excellence says he sees imminent signs of the same restoration in Tom Herman and Texas, the Longhorns' fans should take heart.

The lowdown: After tons of talk about the greatness -or heartbreak- of the 2006 Rose Bowl, USC and Texas put together arguably the most equally opposite first half performance they could.

To be sure, defeating the Longhorns won't equate to defeating the Sooners.

"It's going to be really important for us to stop the run", Petrino said this week. It suggests they're far closer to regaining their standing as a Power 5 juggernaut than their Week 1 flop, or the criticism Herman faced in the aftermath of it, suggested.

The Trojans have won 11 straight games overall, including last season's Rose Bowl.

However, the Trojans do not resemble the No. 4-ranked team right now. You just had a feeling he was gonna run and do something special.

It was a dressing down that left Pakistan feeling humiliated. "We are here to give our point of view logically and with evidence". PM Abbasi's meeting with VP Pence would be the highest contact between the two sides since the policy was announced on Aug 21.

It was a tell, too. Additionally, freshman Stephen Carr has been a breakout star by rushing for 188 yards and two scores on just 18 carries.

Opponents have rushed for just 68 yards against Louisville but are averaging 338.5 yards per game through the air.

The last time the two met, they produced the greatest college football game of all time, a classic between two historically talented teams. That should become more clear during their run through league play.

In the first overtime, redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold fired a strike to junior wide receiver Deontay Burnett on the very first play to give the Trojans a 24-17 lead.

Darnold completed 21 of 26 passes against the Cardinal for 316 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions, reasserting himself as a top candidate for the Heisman Trophy. Huntley has been versatile for the Utes, throwing for 527 yards with a 73.5 completion percentage and leading the team with 159 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. Three times, the Longhorns stopped USC on fourth down, including a stuff of Ronald Jones on fourth-and-goal from the 1 in the first quarter.

Texas' defense has been uneven.

"To me, he is one of the better quarterbacks in the nation", Texas linebacker Naashon Hughes said. It's like Penn State.

Diogu was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player (MVP), headlining the All-Star Five Awards offered by Tissot. However, this year, they were outclassed by the North Africans.

It might not be entirely encouraging for the Trojans.

Vince Young. Fourth and two.

Helton has called Herman, the former offensive coordinator at Ohio State before he was at Houston, a "brilliant offensive mind". Wide receiver Jalen Greene let the ball slip through his fingers and it was intercepted by DeShon Elliott, who went 38 yards for a touchdown.

They could pose problems for USC's defense, which could be without three starters. Both Porter Gustin and Rasheem Green left and would not return.

Texas has some uncertainly behind center.

Again, the play got made, although not for a game-winning place in history.

Freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who led a 91-yard touchdown drive late in regulation in his second start, fumbled on Texas' possession trying to drive toward the goal-line.

Nordin then easily made a 49-yard field goal with only 4 seconds remaining in the second period to put MI up 9-6 at intermission. They have been unable to score a touchdown against Air Force , settling for three field goals and a 9-6 lead at halftime.

MS (2-0) at California (2-0): California's Patrick Laird had already considered 2017 a success after the former walk-on running back was awarded a scholarship in the offseason. He has enough athleticism and body control to play sideline to sideline to provide containment on the edge from his linebacker position.
