Fight on: Helton says USC practices must improve

USC coach Clay Helton is stressing the need for better practices after a 1-2 start. "If you don't provide that leadership," Helton said, "they are not going to do it."

Texas picks up program's 900th win in upset over USC (1:54)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas' 37-14 win over USC was the program's 900th win all time. The Longhorns join Michigan and Ohio State as FBS programs with that distinction.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

A telltale game for both teams ends with a much-needed win for Texas and a second consecutive loss for No. 22 USC as the Longhorns topple the Trojans 37-14. The Longhorns come out of this one confident after a loss to Maryland and a narrow win over Tulsa. USC, who drops to 1-2, has a lot of issues to rectify: special teams was messy and the run game was non-existent. The Trojans have to fix those things moving forward.


Ehlinger 2 touchdown passes lead Texas over No. 22 USC 37-14

Sam Ehlinger passed for two touchdowns, Anthony Wheeler returned a blocked field goal 46 yards for a score and Texas beat No. 22 Southern California 37-14 on Saturday night to give second-year coach Tom Herman his biggest win in burnt orange.

In the last 11 months, USC has suffered demoralizing losses to Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford and Texas, four games that have seen them get outscored by a combined 89 points. That, it seems, will not fly.

Texas saw a third-quarter drive halted in the red zone by a fumble, but the Longhorns find a way to take control over USC anyway as defensive back Caden Sterns blocks a field goal on the ensuing drive and linebacker Anthony Wheeler returns it for a touchdown and a 16-point Texas lead.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

USC struggled to run the ball in the first half vs. Texas. The Trojans have just 16 rushing yards on 11 first-half attempts. After a hot start, USC cooled, seeing an 11-point lead evaporate as Texas leads 16-14 at the midpoint.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Rough second quarter sequence for USC: The Trojans fail to convert fourth-and-goal at the Texas 1, then see a sack for a potential safety not be ruled as such on replay review then after Texas punts out of its end zone, the Trojans rough the punter and give the Longhorns the ball back.

USC fans will have three years of JT Daniels hooking up with Amon-Ra St. Brown. That will be fun.

The SEC is more likely to send multiple teams to the College Football Playoff (38%) than the Pac-12 is to get one or more in (25%), per ESPN's Playoff Predictor.

Love, Stanford roll by USC (1:51)

Love leads No. 10 Stanford past No. 17 USC 17-3

Bryce Love ran for 136 yards and a touchdown and No. 10 Stanford made talented quarterback JT Daniels look like a freshman in a 17-3 victory over No. 17 Southern California on Saturday night.

Joel Anderson ESPN 

Can't help but think USC holding Stanford to a field goal there was a small victory for the Trojan defense. If they fell behind by more than two scores, hard to see how they could make up the difference tonight.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Clay Helton has taken heat for how his USC teams have performed against elite opponents, but it's hard to judge that this year, with such a young, inexperienced quarterback. JT Daniels may be great someday, but he has left a lot of throws on the field tonight.

Joel Anderson ESPN 

USC freshman quarterback J.T. Daniels had completions of 45 and 13 yards on that scoring drive for the Trojans, for a total of 58 yards. In the first half, the Trojans only threw for 64 yards.

Joel Anderson ESPN 

USC has only rallied to win a game in which they trailed by at least 14 points at halftime twice in the last 15 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info. One of those two wins, however, came last year against Utah. The Trojans trailed 21-7 at the half and came back to win 28-27.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

USC's defense can't be happy about that scoring drive but the Trojans did hold Bryce Love to just 40 yards after he ran for 37 on the opening drive. But how about Stanford QB KJ Costello? 13 of 16 for 132 yards. All sorts of time and plenty of space for his WRs to roam

Joel Anderson ESPN 

The last time USC went into the half scoreless? Against Notre Dame last season (Nov. 21); the Trojans would go on to lose that game, 49-14.
