Utah vs USC Preview
After securing victories over the Fresno State Bulldogs and the Stanford Cardinal, the Trojans fell to the BYU Cougars 30-27 in overtime on Saturday for their first defeat of the season.
USC redshirt sophomore kicker Chase McGrath hit a 52-yard field goal with 1:43 remaining in regulation to tie things up at 27, but BYU opened overtime with a field goal then intercepted USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis to seal the victory.
“We didn’t lose this game by big mistakes,” defensive back Chase Williams said, according to 247Sports. “It was the little things, so really we just need to go back to the drawing board, talk with coaches, support each other and do our jobs and that’s it.”
He added: “How do you bounce back? We stick together. All teams go through adversity. Everybody has a time when they have their lows. This is just one of our times, but we’re going to go back, go back to practice, go back to the field, just go back to the film room really and just watch what we did, stay together, don’t blame nobody, don’t fall apart. Let’s stick together like the team we were before the loss.
“All I’m really focused on is the future. You know, we got the next game ahead. We’re going to stick together. We’re going to support each other and that’s it.”
Utah is undefeated through three contests, most recently pounding the Idaho State Bengals 31-0. Seven Utes combined for 223 rushing yards on 36 carries.
Redshirt sophomore Bryan Thompson made two catches for 106 yards, including an 82-yard touchdown strike from senior quarterback Tyler Huntley on Utah’s third drive. Injuries limited Thompson to just four contests a season ago.
“He’s what we expected him to be and he’s finally healthy to do his thing,” head coach Kyle Whittingham said of the wideout, according to the Deseret News. “We know he’s a really good player. He’s got a great skill set, he’s big, 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, he can run, he’s got great hands. It didn’t surprise me, because he’s a really good player. What he did today is what we need from him all season long.”
Friday’s tilt will be a homecoming for Thompson, who grew up in Inglewood, minutes from the LA Coliseum.
“I’m familiar with that stadium,” Thompson said, per the Deseret News. “My brother, Dale Thompson, played for USC during the Reggie Bush era (2004-07) and I used to go to games to watch him.”
