2017’s game wasn’t 2006’s, but it was great in its own way.
People had widely varying sets of expectations for Saturday’s Texas-USC game in Los Angeles. Because while this was a matchup between a 17-point favorite and a team that gave up 51 points at home to Maryland two weeks ago, it was Texas and USC playing under the lights in a rematch of an all-time game.
It turned out to be better than most of us imagined. The No. 4 Trojans won, 27-24, but they needed two overtimes to do it.
