No. 4 USC holds off Texas in 2 OTs

"We've got a good team that you can count on", defensive tackle Chris Nelson said. They did more than just keep it competitive; they almost scored the program's biggest victory since the Mack Brown era closed in 2013. "Good things, and things we've got to figure out".

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

Then Sam Darnold and the Trojan offense showed why it's considered one of the best in the country.

Otherwise, Matt Leinart would be in his 12th season in the National Football League right now, as a multi-time Pro Bowler, and Young would be challenging Tom Brady as the most accomplished quarterback of all-time. And then there sat Texas, first-and-goal in the second overtime, sniffing the end zone when a Trojan defender named Christian Rector ripped the ball clean from quarterback Sam Ehlinger's hands.

USC is the solid favorite in this matchup after its 42-24 rout of Stanford last week.

Two Russian subs attack Islamic State in Syria with Kalibr cruise missiles
The Syrian army and its allies recently broke an Islamic State siege of an enclave in Deir al-Zor that had lasted three years. The projectiles destroyed control centers, communication hubs and arms dumps being used by the terrorists, the regime said.

That's one Texas would regret. I think the defense was excited to go back out because they were having fun out there. He is great in the pocket. "I have respect for him and Texas".

But you can not deny this team left the historic building feeling good about itself.

The "True Detective" actor was on the sidelines with legendary Longhorns quarterback Vince Young.

MS (2-0) at California (2-0): California's Patrick Laird had already considered 2017 a success after the former walk-on running back was awarded a scholarship in the offseason. Justin Herbert passed for 251 yards and a score, and added a touchdown run.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. He had not carried more than four times in a game before last week.

Hazard: I dream every day of winning the Champions League
In fact, Qarabag have won only four of their 18 games in the group stages of a European competition (D5 L9). There is also a possible sighting of Eden Hazard out of the bench after his comeback on Saturday.

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday night was a mélange of adversity, chaos and tension, and the fans' collective shouting and stomping made for an overwhelmingly hostile environment, but they applauded the Longhorns after the game.

That's what makes the loss so hard to digest because it was a chance to make a huge statement about a new direction for Texas Football.

The Longhorns (1-2) have an open date in Week 4 before returning to the field on September 28 at Iowa State. Sure, the defense shut out San Jose State last Saturday, but the Trojans and Spartans are worlds apart (despite their close nicknames). He completed a 17-yard pass to Lil'Jordan Humphrey. He ranks No. 14 in the nation in total offense with 343.0 yards per game. In Winston's sophomore year at Florida State, he threw 25 touchdowns and 18 interceptions but still led the Seminoles to the national championship playoff.

Tristan Nickelson and Denzel Okafor had been rotating at right tackle in the first two-plus games. Phillip Lindsay is a senior tailback for the Buffaloes and Zachary Lindsay a junior running back for the Bears. "At 6'5" and 315 pounds, the former Coppell star entered his junior season as one of the most highly regarded draft-eligible offensive line draft prospects. That would be a monumental task for an experienced Power Five program to play those two programs on consecutive weeks. But it wasn't until Saturday's win over Texas that it really felt official.

"I'll probably do my fair share of looking around and enjoy the pageantry of playing a game against USC in the Coliseum", Herman said, "but beyond that it's just Game 3 on the schedule".
