Los Angeles, Ca – The hottest team in the nation right now is the USC Trojans who defeated Norte Dame for their eighth victory in a row 45-27.
Adoree’ Jackson put on a human highlight tape performance with three touchdowns in a game. Each touchdown more electrifying than the one before.
Jackson’s first touchdown was a 55 yard punt return just before the half. Then with 7:41 left in third quarter he took a 52 yard screen pass to end zone that made the score 31-14 USC.
As if Jackson couldn’t do anything more electrifying he returned a kickoff for 97 yards while hurdling the Norte Dame kicker in stride for the hat trick.
“I had great blocks from everybody,” said Jackson. “Right when kick was going off.” (When Jackson knew he was going to score 97 yard run.)
The crowd jeered in the fourth quarter “One More Year! One More Year!” Looking to convince Adoree’ Jackson to come back and not declare for the NFL draft earlier.
The crowd was also yelling for JuJu Smith-Schuster who may have played his last home game for the Trojans.
In fourth quarter Sam Darnold found Smith for two yard touchdown catch on the backside added insurance 45 – 21.
Darnold today controlled ball with no mistakes completing 19/30 for 205 yards 2 touchdowns. Did just want coach Clay Helton needed him to do to win.
Helton has been making the right calls, even unpopular quarterback change when it happen eight games ago.
“Hats off to a bunch of seniors,” said Helton “to go undefeated in October and November and come into Coliseum each and every time this year and come out with a victory.”
The Norte Dame rivalry has been little lopsided the last 14 years with USC only losing 4 of those contest. The winner gets year-long possession of the jeweled Shillelagh that.
The Shillelagh will be staying in Los Angeles for this next year.
USC road to PAC-12 Championship was not decided on the Coliseum field but after tonight with the Utah vs Colorado outcome. Washington already punched their ticket for Levi’s Stadium.
So know USC will enjoy this victory of the Fighting Irish and cheer on Utah to defeat Colorado.
“It was so much fun today with the loud crowd behind us.” Jackson
