USC tops Texas on 2OT field goal in another head-to-head classic

USC outlasts Texas in 2017 double overtime classic

Eleven years after the two bluebloods met for an epic Rose Bowl Game for the 2006 BCS Championship, USC and Texas once again stole the night Saturday in the L.A. Coliseum.

No. 4 USC escaped with a double overtime 27-24 win and moved to 3-0 on a game-winning 43-yard field goal from freshman walk-on kicker Chase McGrath in double overtime. McGrath also hit the game-tying 31-yarder as time expired in regulation to send the game to overtime.

With the exception of a Texas field goal in the third quarter, all the regulation scoring came in the final three minutes of each half. In the fourth quarter, the Longhorns took their first lead of the game with 45 seconds left on their first offensive touchdown of the game. But Sam Darnold and company quickly drove back down the field to set up McGrath for the high-stakes tying field goal.
