The week one matchup between the USC Trojans and the Western Michigan Broncos ended up being a little closer than Trojan fans wanted it to be - there was sloppy play on both sides of the ball which, ultimately, made for some interesting moments. Let's take a look at what was going on in the Twitter universe during the game!
Here's a cool shot of the players heading onto the field:
We got to see some plays from potential Heisman-candidate Ronald Jones II - he scored three touchdowns on the day:
Might've been the most impressive Ronald Jones drive of his career. Sounds absurd, but he looked good on every run. Wasn't just one breaker.— Reign of Troy (@ReignofTroy) September 2, 2017

Some were confused as to why this was not a nationally televised game:
Western Michigan is giving USC everything it can handle. This should be a national TV showcase game, not buried on Pac-12 Network.— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) September 2, 2017
The moment of the game, though, was when long snapper Jake Olson got the call to head onto the field late in the 4th quarter and, well, it was awesome:

But blind snapper Jake Olson just had his first game snap for an XP. Kudos, USC and Jake.

Huge cheer for that PAT with Jake Olson handling the snap flawlessly.— Ryan Abraham (@insidetroy) September 3, 2017
