This was USC's big test. Playing Nebraska in Lincoln, dealing with the red sea of fans. The stadium was all red. The crowd was loud but USC only needed 4 plays to get its first touchdown. But then Nebraska came back and scored 10 unanswered points and took the lead. After that it was all USC. We ran through their defense at will. #13 Stafon Johnson was amazing and he earned MVP of the game. We ended up beating Nebraska 49-31 but it wasn't even that close. We gave them 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter after we benched our first team and put in the reserves. Of course Nebraska kept their first team on the field. Our coach Pete Carroll likes to give the up and coming players some game time when we are way ahead. This gives them experience and prepares them for when they are first string. I think its great he does that but a lot of SC fans get frustrated because we always give up points when he does that. It was 49-10 when we put in our second string and then to boot at the very end it was our 3rd string in the game. I was very happy for my USC Trojans. They proved they are the number 1 team in the country tonight. LSU is coming on strong, but USC winning on the road in a hostile environment with a good team sealed the deal for USC. FIGHT ON Trojans! And Happy 56th Birthday to our coach Pete Carroll today.
Speaking of birthdays, today would have been my sister, Connie's 44th birthday. I still miss her and love her so much. She has been gone almost 23 years now.
