From: “USC Destroys Arizona 48-14”
“USC started the second quarter with a bang, as “Mr. Everything” Adoree’ Jackson picked up an Arizona fumble and returned the ball 27 yards, taking it down to the 10 yard line. Sam Darnold took advantage of the turnover with another touchdown pass, this time to Daniel Imatorbhebhe.
Arizona’s only other chance to keep themselves in the game came on their next possession. But the Trojan D flexed its muscles again and stopped the Wildcats on a 4th and 1 from goal line. From here, USC never looked back.
On the next possession, Darnold tossed a nifty bubble screen pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster for another TD. JuJu scored yet again before half on an incredible catch and run, and USC led 34-7 at the break.
Coach Clay Helton was quick to praise Darnold at halftime, saying, “He’s not playing like a freshman right now, and that’s what we’re hoping for, distributing the ball really well to a bunch of different guys.””
