USC Trojans win in walk off fashion against Texas Longhorns
Sep 17 2017 by Marjorie Miles
The over is 4-0 in Trojans last 4 games overall and under is 8-1 in Longhorns last 9 games overall.
USC started its season with a victory over Western Michigan, but coach Clay Helton's team left a little to be desired. "If you make one mistake they're down the sideline". Sam Darnold is completing 74.6 percent of his passes for 605 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Assuming the Trojans can avoid any major injuries, this team should be in the mix for a spot in the CFB Playoff.
"This team is going to be a sleeping giant", Helton said. Additionally, the schedule is manageable the rest of the way.
So when the architect of Southern California's return to excellence says he sees imminent signs of the same restoration in Tom Herman and Texas, the Longhorns' fans should take heart. USC had drawn first blood, scoring the game's first points on the touchdown. Defensively, Texas is allowing 25.5 points and 326.5 yards per game.
Our defense played well, they had turnovers, but Vince was a dominant, dominant player, and he just made that play.
Texas and USC face off on Saturday in the first year of a home-and-home series between the two programs. The teams last met in the 2006 Rose Bowl, which Texas won 41-38 to claim the national championship.

He made his preseason debut against the Redskins in Game 3 and did not catch any passes but had an 8-yard gain on a jet sweep. Later in the first quarter, Jackson forced a turnover that led to fumble recovery and 49-yard return by Jadeveon Clowney .

That match saw fellow left-hander Lewis manage the impressive feat of out-hitting Gayle on his way to a stunning and unbeaten 125. In response Alex Hales struck a blistering 43 as England started strongly but the hosts fell to 68-4 and were all out for 155.
San Jose State (1-2) at Utah (2-0): Quarterback Tyler Huntley and receiver Darren Carrington have flourished in Utah's new spread offense, but the scheme has room for improvement before Pac-12 play begins at Arizona on September 22. The box score will show Sam Arnold passed for 397 yards and three touchdowns. There were good things for the freshman Ehlinger, and some really not good things. While Heard has attempted two passes and attempted 159 in 2015, he's utilized as more of a change-of-pace option or a running threat.
The Texas Longhorns started the season with high hopes. But if Buechele struggles or is ineffective, Herman won't hesitate to let Ehlinger have a chance to guide the offense.

Said defensive coordinator Todd Orlando: "Everybody on that field, skill wise, is fast". The Trojans faced a third-and-1 situation at the Texas 34-yard line. However, those defensive concerns are mitigated by an explosive offense capable of simply outscoring every team on the schedule. Cameron Smith leads the USC Trojans with 14 tackles, Josh Fatu has one sack and Marvell Tell III has one interception.
How can you tune in to Saturday afternoon's game between Texas and USC? The Trojans gashed the Cardinal for 307 yards on the ground and 316 through the air. Sam (Darnold) does a great job of distributing the football and getting guys in space. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino believes his defense must become stingier to finally beat the Tigers after losing the three previous meetings by a total of 15 points. Last season, Darnold threw for 31 touchdowns and over 3000 yards.
As if having one of the nation's best quarterbacks wasn't enough, USC has an emerging tandem of talent at running back. Also, freshman Stephen Carr contributed 119 yards rushing. You just had a feeling he was gonna run and do something special. Regardless of the final spread, USC is the better team. With uncertainty at quarterback and questions on defense, the Longhorns will need a quantum leap to pull off the upset in LA.
