The fifth-year senior linebacker and leader of the USC defense redshirted on a team that, indropped two conference games by Oct. The Trojans rallied, adjusting to a coaching change and building an impressive home-field winning streak that lasted three years, en route to their first Pac Championship Game. Head coach Clay Helton, who assumed leadership in from dismissed Steve Sarkisian amid that Pac start, cites the turnarounds of that season and '16 as a precedent for this year's team. It requires no scoreboard-watching or Charlie Day corkboard scenarios.
The Utes are this season, while the Trojans are Utah is a 3. Time: 8 p. Central 9 p.
The last time USC lost a home game to the Utes was in , when the school whose unofficial nickname had recently changed from the Methodists to the Trojans played downtown at long-gone Fiesta Park. But that doesn't have any bearing on this year. The Utes return to the Coliseum with a chance to establish themselves firmly as the favorite for a second straight Pac South title by beating the conference's highest-profile team at home.
It the Trojans can't do it against the preseason division favorites, coach Clay Helton's departure could move a bit closer.
So yeah, this game does mean a lot for us, and we knew that coming into the season. He passed for yards and three touchdowns in his first career start against Stanford, but he followed it up by throwing three interceptions, including the game-ending overtime pick, in Provo.
Just got to work to get better. I'm not sure if he's too confident right now after that game against BYU. With 3, yards that put him fifth among all active FBS players, Moss is yards behind s star Eddie Johnson 3, for the school record.
Moss is also just four rushing touchdowns behind Del Rodgers' school-record Utes fans aren't used to seeing this type of merciless efficiency, and Huntley is impressing with his legs as well as his arm.
Huntley challenges USC's defense, which hasn't faced a top-shelf quarterback yet this season — in fact, two of their three opposing QBs were making their first career starts.
Brown and Tyler Vaughns — that Whittingham called "maybe the best in the country, as far as sheer ability. Slovis' first two interceptions led to 10 points, and the third ended the game in overtime.
That game was also the Trojans' first televised game from the Coliseum and their first televised regular season game ever. The Trojans are trying to play quickly in their new Air Raid offense, but they've avoided most major injuries so far.
