The only scoring in the third quarter came on a 39-yard Joshua Rowland field goal. Some eschewed coffee or orange juice for a couple Bloody Marys. He leads Texas in scoring with two interception returns for touchdowns and another score on a blocked kick return.
An offense featuring playmakers simply couldn't make enough plays, Darnold at times missing his receivers, his receivers at other times missing Darnold's passes. Kickoff is at 8:30 p.m. ET on FOX. The game lived up to the hype in many ways and we learned more about the Longhorns on a ideal night in Southern California.
After a back and forth in the extra period, the USC defense forced and recovered a fumble, putting the game at McGrath's feet once more. And we got the ball back with like 20 seconds, but that's when. In the game's first OT, Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold found Deontay Burnett in the end zone to strike first. Texas' defense got exposed by Maryland in week one and now has to face an elite offense from USC. But although it's now 1-2 in Herman's debut season, Texas can at least move forward feeling a lot more confident that it's heading in the right direction, coming just a play or two from beating a team ranked No. 4. While the buzz and overall importance for this meeting isn't as high as the last meeting between these two programs, there is plenty at stake for the Longhorns and Trojans on Saturday night.
Those conversations are unlikely to bleed into either locker room. Although Texas and USC are now on different levels in terms of expectations, a win for either team could potentially catapult them to a phenomenal season. After the score, Burnett epically celebrated by shaking former USC quarterback Matt Leinart's hand in the end zone.

This season, the Trojans are expected to compete for a national championship and are now ranked in the top four according to the Associated Press. After a somewhat sluggish start against Western Michigan, Southern Cal manhandled Stanford, racking up 316 yards through the air and 307 on the ground.
Tailback tandem Ronald Jones II and Stephen Carr looked like maybe the nation's best tailback tandem against Stanford, but Texas held up remarkably well in the trenches, getting penetration and plugging running holes. It suggests they're far closer to regaining their standing as a Power 5 juggernaut than their Week 1 flop, or the criticism Herman faced in the aftermath of it, suggested. And the quarterback is very risky. They also came up with one of the biggest plays late in the first half thanks to a pick-six from DeShon Elliott, who had a monster game. Texas beat the doors off of San Jose State, but was torched by an average Maryland squad and has had very little road success over the years.
That gave momentum to a Texas team using its backup quarterback, true freshman Sam Ehlinger.
Texas (1-1) "is a team that I think is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode", Helton said. They finished with 49 points. With less than a minute to go in the first half, Darnold fired a pass to redshirt junior wide receiver Jalen Greene, who dropped it. Williams is widely considered to be the best player on the team and projected as a first-round National Football League draft pick if he were to leave school after this season.

At the time, it was seen as another abrogation of the United States' preeminent role as a global leader. The Wall Street Journal reports that senior administration officials now plan to "renegotiate".
