USC-Cal: USC runs Cal aground.
USC kept itself grounded tonight. Literally.
Much like the smackdown of Nebraska I reported on back in September, the Trojans resembled the student body right days in wearing down the Cal Bears in a 24-17 win. For the game, USC ended up with 239 yards on the ground, though it seemed more like 500 yards. The Men of Troy air attack gained just 129 yards.
But 16 of SC's 19 offensive plays in the fourth quarter were running plays, accounting for 82 yards.
Chauncey Washington led the grindhouse offense, churning out an impressive 220 yards on 29 carries.
