Texas loses to USC, 27-24, in double overtime

Tom Herman is a Texan by choice
Mitchell caught two touchdowns last weekend against Stanford.
Ball protection and pass rushing will also be critical with both teams capable of taking advantage. He'll make his first college start Saturday (7:30 p.m., ESPN) when Cal hosts MS at Memorial Stadium. The game lived up to the hype in many ways and we learned more about the Longhorns on a flawless night in Southern California.
As the 2017 college football continues on Saturday, Texas and USC face off at 8:30 PM EST in L. A. Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, California. But Davis lost the ball out of the back of the end zone as he crossed the goal line, and the touchdown was turned into a touchback upon review.
The Trojans moved down the field on a pair of 21-yard gains, the first a Sam Darnold pass to Deontay Burnett, and the second a pass and run from Darnold to Stephen Carr.
USC is ranked No. 4 in the nation entering the game and a dominant win over Texas will solidify their spot atop the college football world as they look to remain in the national championship picture. You know the one.
On Saturday, instead, the Trojans were matched up against a Texas team that opened the season by losing at home to Maryland before pounding San Jose State.
Those conversations are unlikely to bleed into either locker room. Kelly celebrated the score with a defiant Gator chomp in the end zone, which rewarded by the officials with an excessive celebration flag. This one, though, was more distant classic. 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.
A ground game that hammered out 307 yards last week against Stanford couldn't, when it absolutely had to, gain a few inches. Texas coach Tom Herman seems to thrive in the underdog role. And the quarterback is very unsafe. After Texas had scored an improbable defensive touchdown on a pick-six by DeShon Elliott, the Trojans had a 37-yard kick return by Velus Jones followed up by a quick six-yard run and then a 56-yard touchdown pass from Darnold to Jones. The Longhorns were gouged by Maryland for 263 rushing yards in their season-opening loss, including 132 on 12 carries by Ty Johnson - a 1,000-yard rusher like Jones last season.
Buechele has not fully practiced for two weeks now, though Herman expects him to be available in some capacity against Southern Cal. There were good things for the freshman Ehlinger, and some really not good things.
Everyone has tried to make this best of this thorny triangle. They finished with 49 points. Former starter Jerrod Heard is now a receiver, but also could be a factor as a ball-carrier.
Williams was named first-team preseason All-America by the Associated Press heading into this year, his junior season at Texas. The Trojans faced a third-and-1 situation at the Texas 34-yard line.
"Can make every throw in the book", Herman said. "He's just different. I think he might be the best tackle in the country. The guy can run and he's pretty elusive".
Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast agreed. I think they do a great job.
It's no secret the leader for this unit is sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold. One week later, the Trojans made quite a statement against Stanford. San Diego State has the city to itself after the NFL's Chargers bolted up the freeway to play in a 27,000-seat soccer stadium in a Los Angeles suburb.
And if the Longhorns fail miserably, those who made the pilgrimage will turn back to happier conversations about a time they desperately want to recapture.
