USC Trojans News
9-15-14: The Trojans were in for a wake-up call this past Saturday as they played Boston College in Chestnut Hill. The Eagles outrushed USC 452 to 20 as BC beat Southern Cal 37-31. According to the L.A. Daily News, the last USC team to allow that many yards rushing was in 1977, when Texas A&M rushed for 486 in the Bluebonnet Bowl. USC’s 20 yards rushing was their fewest since they gained 1 yard against Utah in the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl. Overall, it was not a good night to be a Trojan fan. USC is idle this week.
9-9-14: The Trojans had to rely on their defense and kicking to win a critical Pac-12 road game 13-10, and claim its first victory at Stanford since 2008. J.R. Tavai's sack of Stanford QB Kevin Hogan with 19 seconds left forced a fumble, which was recovered by USC was the dagger. That came just over two minutes after Andre Heidari nailed a 53-yard field goal to give USC the lead. This is the second straight year Heidari kicked a game-winning field goal to beat Stanford. The Trojans will travel across the country to take on Boston College in Chestnut Hill this weekend.
9-4-14: The Trojans gained more than 700 yards and ran 104 plays, which set a Pac-12 record for offensive snaps in their 52-13 rout of Fresno State last Saturday. Their offense was diverse and dominant everywhere. Cody Kessler threw for 394 yards and four touchdowns (along with a rushing TD) and Javorius Allen adding 133 rushing yards and a TD. Steve Sarkisian played more than a dozen true freshmen, mostly on offense, with wide receiver JuJu Smith catching four balls for 123 yards. The Trojans have a tough game this Saturday when they travel north to Palo Alto to take on AP No. 13 Stanford.
