The ending of this year’s USC football season is hard to watch.
Derailed by the postponment of a game against Cal Berkeley, kicked around mercilessly by the UCLA Bruins, the USC Trojans this week tried to stop a skid towards a cliff but failed, losing to BYU, 35-31.
The acting coach is still alternating quarterbacks. This week, it was Jaxson Dart’s turn. He both passed for a touchdown and ran for another while passing for 248 yards. But the team came up short of enough points in the fourth quarter when BYU gained a final touchdown and point after to take the Cougars to 35 and past the Trojans.
The Trojans were down by 15 points in the third quarter when they finally began packing on points. They passed the Cougars at the beginning of the fourth quarter but allowed the Cougars one further fatal touchdown and point after.
The pandemic-postponed game against Cal Berkeley will be played on Saturday, December 4.
