Rainbows, Ponchos and a USC Lead

LOS ANGELES -- The strangest thing happened on the last USC drive. Before the Trojans took the field on offense, the rain started up again. But as the drive progressed, the clouds broke on the USC side of the field with sun shining on east end zone. Meanwhile, rain was still falling on the other half of the field and the fans in the west end zone.

On a good note, the strange weather created a short-lived rainbow shining on downtown L.A. On a sadder note, the USC Song Girls put on rain ponchos to keep dry. Luckily the rain has since stopped and the ponchos are gone.

The weather didn't bother the Trojans, who took a 14-7 lead before the end of the first quarter on a one-yard touchdown run from Stanley Havili. Chauncey Washington is getting the bulk of the carries with 14 yards, but the Trojans are sticking primarily with the air attack. Through the first quarter, USC has tallied 105 yards on 14 passes and 25 rushing yards on six carries.
