He entered the USC No.13 USC Championship match Friday night against Oregon after developing fame in late-game tournaments during the 5–0 start that included three tight wins. The Trojans maintained this reputation late in the third quarter, when they pursued a field goal attempt by reclaiming a kick to the side while trailing 28-17.
But only when the USC appeared to be about to take the game momentum did the Oregon defense tighten and force a kick to send the match into the fourth quarter with the Ducks capturing the soccer ball and leading 11 points.
This is a match for the conference title predicted in a pre-season media poll with the league, but Oregon only ended up in the game after Washington was unable to play due to COVID-19 issues. The ducks looked like they belonged in the third quarter, although they had collected 14 plays, an 83-yard landing campaign. The only question now is whether the Trojans have another late-game rally as they seek to start 6-0 for the first time since 2006.
