Texas OT Connor Williams Will Need Surgery Out Indefinitely

The Texas Longhorns (1-1) meet the 4th ranked University of Southern California Trojans (2-0), led by quarterback Sam Darnold, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 (9/16/17) at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. Dormady hit 21-of-39 passes for 259 yards with a touchdown and three interception, and Kelly led both teams on the ground and through the air, rushing 19 times for 141 yards and a touchdown and catching six balls for 96 yards. The Trojans claim the loss to Texas in 2006 Rose Bowl was "vacated' by the NCAA because of penalties for USC rules violations".

But given the circumstances, it's hard to have asked for anything more than what the Trojans and Longhorns delivered this time. USC managed to pull off an wonderful comeback against Penn State University and won 52-49 with a game winning field goal as time expired.

The game was a back-and-forth chess match that saw a USC Trojans team that was unable to create distance on the scoreboard with their opponent.

The journey to get there proved to be full of surprising twists.

Stat of the game: Just days after having two screws put in his foot, USC outside linebacker Porter Gustin had two sacks in the first half. That's when Vince had gone down and drove, and we really drove on them all game, and really the second half, and we were driving again, and we went for it on fourth down, and they stopped us with - what was it? - like two minutes left or something. He faces a Texas defense that gets pushed around at the line of scrimmage and misses too many tackles at linebacker.

This was set up to be the game that gave USC a convincing victory over a nationally recognized school in prime time on an early season Saturday night, the sort of win that could well resonate all the way till playoff time. Even after tailing lat in the fourth quarter, USC wouldn't go away as quarterback Sam Darnold drove the team right back down the field for a game-tying field goal.

Not to be undone on the wackiness, Darnold checked down on his Hail Mary attempt to find an unmarked Ronald Jones, who raced to the end zone 56 yards for a score with the help of a perfectly executed block by Steven Mitchell.

The Tax Policy Center, a joint effort of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, estimates that the tax cuts Mr. They're not saying no to tax cuts, just demanding that they be paid for and actually benefit people who need the help.

The Trojans, though, are still searching for other targets.

Sophomore quarterback Shane Buechele entered the season as the starter, but was sidelined last week against San Jose State with a bruised throwing shoulder. He completed a 17-yard pass to Lil'Jordan Humphrey.

The Longhorns have had little trouble on offense through their first two games under Herman.

Given new life, Tennessee made the most of its extra chance, racing 80 yards in five plays, mostly on the legs of John Kelly, including a 34-yard burst that pulled the Vols to within 13-10 with 8:36 remaining. First, he found Armanti Foreman for what looked to be the go-ahead touchdown and then later found Cade Brewer for a score in the first overtime. The Vols moved the ball 31 yards to the Florida 9-yard line, but the drive stalled there and Aaron Medley knocked in a 27-yard field goal to tie the game with 50 seconds to play. Buechele and Sam Ehlinger have combined for three touchdowns this season.

After combining for 32 carries and 238 yards - 166 by Warren - against San Jose State, the two had just nine carries for 24 yards.

The Longhorns have an off week before a Thursday night game at Iowa State, a potential trap spot.

ABOUT TEXAS (1-1): Look for the Longhorns to try and put together some long drives and keep USC's offense off the field as long as possible. Tom Herman's team struggled to get much done offensively in the first half, but thanks to defensive back DeShon Elliott the Longhorns scored their first points of the game.
