Pilot traces Longhorn symbol in outline of Texas

"Yes", Herman responded. "Can we get better?"

Yeah, it was good stuff, with a lot of back-and-forth detail we highly recommend you check out in the Associated Press capsule.

Although the Trojans escaped the Coliseum with a narrow win, Helton must find a way to get their offensive flowing in a more consistent manner.

Because let's be honest: If this was truly a rematch of that epic game, then both teams' first half performances were an insult to everything that the 2006 Rose Bowl represented. I think his presence on the sidelines during the big game against USC might be a sign things are finally turning around.

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

Darnold led the Trojans into field goal range, with the drive including an impressive jump-pass to Stephen Carr for a 21-yard gain.

Southern Cal linebacker Uchenna Nwvosu stops Texas quarterback Sam. "When he's not getting those yards, it doesn't make much sense to keep going back to the well". He is great in the pocket.

In a lot of respects, you can make the argument that they have.

Cardinal quarterback Keller Chryst was largely ineffective and had his worst outing as a starter, finishing with just eight completions for an unremarkable 56 yards and the game-sealing interception with 48 seconds left.

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. And more than likely, it's a lost season, a high draft pick, and a significant change of fate. He'll make his first college start Saturday (7:30 p.m., ESPN) when Cal hosts MS at Memorial Stadium.

There may be a more of those echoing around Austin as Herman and his staff try to rebuild a running game behind an offensive line struggling with injuries. By that measure, Warren would have scored from the USC 3-yard line in overtime.

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

USC: The Trojans' road opener is at California on Saturday.

The Longhorns (1-2) have an open date in Week 4 before returning to the field on September 28 at Iowa State. The junior quarterback finished with 381 yards of combined total offense and three total touchdowns while throwing his first interception. USC entered Saturday's contest allowing 216.5 rushing yards per game.

Todd Bowles is upset with his team's play, but the Jets benefit in the long run if it stays this way.


USC's 27-24 win over Texas in double-overtime on Saturday was an early candidate for college football's game of the year. Whether he can return this season is unknown. As for any trash talk this week, well, the conversations have tended to be more along the lines of sibling revelry.

Sam Darnold is the player Jets fans should be paying attention to this season.

Texas football has been in a slump for awhile.

A wild game, full of drama and tension, and was as entertaining as any of the more prominently featured games of the week. On Friday night, the game between the Illini and Bulls was rendered excruciating by yellow flags raining down onto the turf seemingly every snap.
