USC wins double-OT thriller over Texas

USC wins double-OT thriller over Texas

No. 4 USC beat Texas 27-24 in a double-overtime thriller in which both teams went long stretches without scoring, only for each half to end with a dramatic rush of points.

This was the first time that Texas and USC had faced off since the 2006 Rose Bowl in which former Longhorn quarterback Vince Young won a National Championship.

USC didn't get anywhere on its possession after the fumble, but freshman kicker Chase McGrath hit a 43-yard field goal to give USC the win.

"We've got a good team that you can count on", defensive tackle Chris Nelson said.

Texas Football and Texas Longhorns fan expect to win every game. A mob of USC's teammates flowed from the sidelined and mobbed him in celebration.

The most hyped up game of the entire college football season was the #Texas vs. #Usc game.

In the hyper-reactive world of September rankings, USC is likely to slide a bit in the Top 10 after struggling to hold on, even though its defense almost posted a shutout for 59 minutes.

It was a sudden twist.

But USC immediately answered, driving deep into Texas territory.

USC cornerback Jack Jones, who was covering Foreman, had tripped as Foreman ran across the end zone. Collin Johnson and Reggie Hemphill-Mapps have combined for 291 receiving yards and one touchdown while Armanti Foreman has 10 receptions.

Sophomore quarterback Shane Buechele (bruised throwing shoulder) was dressed and cleared to play. It was then the Longhorns' first offensive touchdown, and the first time the Trojans trailed.

The Trojans quickly moved downfield for the tying field goal, a 31-yarder from McGrath. It was Ehlinger's fourth turnover of the night. After Sam Ehlinger led a monumental 14-play drive 91 yards for a go-ahead touchdown, Texas kicked the ball back to USC with just 45 seconds to play. Also, Burnett leaped forward for breathtaking catches. The box score will show Sam Arnold passed for 397 yards and three touchdowns. Malik Jefferson leads the Texas Longhorns with 16 tackles, Edwin Freeman has one sack and Holton Hill has two interceptions. After struggling last season against Nebraska, admittedly in a game that got out of hand and was one of his early career starts, he's now had two more disappointing outings against Power Five opposition. But the game was close all the way through, as Texas used takeaways (including a series of fourth-down stops) to keep the Trojans within spitting distance. A Longhorn defense who had been maligned after its opening-day performance held an explosive Trojan offense to just 17 points in regulation. Saturday was USC QB Sam Darnold's second multiple-interception game of the season, matching his total from 2016.

The ground game for the Longhorns ended up being almost nonexistent. "We couldn't do anything in the first half".
