Usc Trojans Vs. Washington Huskies Recap
October 8, 2015
The Washington Huskies traveled down to Southern California last night to take on their rival USC Trojans in a special Thursday edition of NCAA football. The story of the night was the vaunted Husky defense that stymied almost every Trojan drive.
Ballyhooed quarterback Cody Kessler would only net 156 yards of passing on the night, did not find any of his receivers for scores, plus managed to find the wrong color of jersey twice ending USC drives. While the USC running attack did generate nearly 200 total yards on the night, Tre Madden leading the way with 120 yards, only Ronald Jones II would find pay dirt for the Trojans.
Kessler started the game off with his first INT less than 2-minutes into the game, and it seemed Washingtonâ€™s confidence would just continue to grow. A restless home crowd would let their displeasure be known for most of the night, as the USC offense just could not sustain any sort of successful drive.
Washington won for the 3rd time in 2015, while sending USC to a very disappointing second loss in the Pacific 12 conference.
Arizona State Sun Devils Vs. Usc Trojans Recap
September 26, 2015
Arizona State was looking to knock off USC at home Saturday night. The Trojans had a meltdown last year, and lost on a hail mary. USC was out for revenge, and that is exactly what they would get. USC looked to come out fast and would drive to the 2 yard line only to have Cody Kessler throw and INT. That would be the only real mistake USC would make as they would clean everything up and take a 14-0 lead midway through the 2nd quarter on the arm of Cody Kessler. The Sun Devils looked to cut into the lead before halftime but Mike Bercovici would fumble at the 6 and Chris Hawkins of USC would take it back to the house for a 94 yard TD. The following play the Gump Hayes would fumble the ball at the 4 and give USC the ball back. Cody Kessler would throw his 4th TD pass of the half and give USC a 35-0 lead into halftime. ASU would score a couple times in the 2nd half but USC QB Cody Kessler would prove to much with his 5 TD's and 375 yards.
