While the Trojans seemed fully prepared for the conference opener, they were not able to stop the running game, specifically the man who stands at 5'6". Rodgers' elusiveness was able to escape many tackles, and it seemed all his runs were up the middle. Mark Sanchez's interception thrown late in the game really hurt the chances of a comeback as the Beavers took a 13 point lead with just over two minutes to play. We were able to salvage one more touchdown, but a failed onside kick was the final straw for the USC Trojans.
