Trojans win an instant classic against Texas with field goal in 2OT

USC Escapes With Dramatic Overtime Victory 27-24 in 2006 Rose Bowl Rematch With Texas

Then the offenses finally found their stride.

Helton spent several seasons behind the scenes at USC as a stabilizing force in the chaotic coaching tenures of Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian.

The Texas Longhorns thought they had won the game at the end of the fourth quarter.

Darnold and his Trojans (3-0) earned their own memorable win by outlasting a Texas offense led by Sam Ehlinger, the freshman from Austin who almost engineered a huge win early in coach Tom Herman's debut season with Texas (1-2).

"That's what great teams do, they're going to have one of these games and they find a way to win". "We gave it all we had". The victory gave them their first 3-0 start since 2011. "We put them in a one-dimensional offense". "Good things, we got to figure out and learn from".

What were the game's big moments, which players stepped up and how about that Chase McGrath kid?

Leinart, the Trojans' former Heisman Trophy winning passer, was honored after the first quarter for his induction this year into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Darnold threw for 397 yards and three touchdowns. "Turned the ball over four times, had issues with the snap, a couple of costly calls that didn't go our way, but our guys kept fighting".

With approximately 45 seconds remaining, Ehlinger found Armanti Foreman on the right side of the endzone as the Longhorns captured their first lead 17-14. McGrath also hit the game-tying 31-yarder as time expired in regulation to send the game to overtime. "I don't know where it ranks". "You hope for flawless execution, and that's what we got".

What's not to like about a game that featured a score at 0:00 three times: at the end first half, the end of the second and the end of the second OT? He completed a 17-yard pass to Lil'Jordan Humphrey.

Klopp: Liverpool could have won every game
Trent Alexander-Arnold had a deflected volley expertly denied when it looked as though it was creeping in the bottom right corner. With Matip and Dejan Lovren distracted by Chris Wood, Scott Arfield could meet Robbie Brady's header and finish in style.

On the Longhorns' possession in the second overtime, Texas freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger fumbled 2 yards from the end zone when the ball was stripped from his arms by Christian Rector. Ajene Harris recovered, but the Trojans' offense stalled before McGrath came through again.

Darnold's game is reminiscent of Jameis Winston.

"To me, he is one of the better quarterbacks in the nation", Texas linebacker Naashon Hughes said. "That kid always has heart".

"We wouldn't want it any other way", Ehlinger said about that final drive.

Texas: Once the heartache subsides, this will be an encouraging outing.

Chris Warren III ran for 166 yards running for two touchdowns as the Longhorns posted a 56-0 victory over San Jose State last Saturday marking Tom Herman's first as the head coach.

This game was expected to be a shootout but turned out to be a defensive slugfest. This tied the game at seven and brought it to halftime. With less than a minute to go in the first half, Darnold fired a pass to redshirt junior wide receiver Jalen Greene, who dropped it.

The Texas defense held strong the entire game. He got a devastating block from receiver Steven Mitchell on the way in. USC couldn't defend the 6-foot-6 Californian consistently.

But after the USC defense was gassed over the final minutes of regulation, Texas' defense was gassed in the seconds that followed.

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.
