The ghost of Toa Lobendahn on the snap!
I guess Kedon Slovis will be the excuse for Folt, Bohn and Helton.
Iowa pounds USC’s defense and gets a TD. It’s 35-24.
Iowa is back to dissecting the USC defense.
Kedon Slovis is out. Matt Fink has won big games before.
And just like that, USC scores as Kedon Slovis throws a perfect deep pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown.
USC cuts lead to 28-24.
This is a problem with the Air Raid or Graham Harrell. He doesn’t want to run the ball. USC tailbacks have five carries.
USC gets a field goal and it’s 28-17 at halftime.
Iowa is making USC’s defense look silly. It’s 28-14 Hawkeyes.
The Air Raid just got stopped and only the replay official prevented Iowa from taking over deep in USC territory.
There’s the John Baxter we know and love. A 98-yard kick return for a TD!
Well, Iowa can’t defend the Air Raid yet. Better try a three-man rush. Gus Johnson went on a tirade after the TD about
“This is the Air Raid at USC. Five-star guys!”
Iowa runs to the edge, of course, and USC can’t defend it. TD.
Iowa had a perfect trick play and USC fell for it but the pass was off.
Iowa ran the ball and converted a third-and-9? Seriously???
End of first quarter: USC 7, Iowa 7.
USC pretty much only passes as it drives 75 yards for the TD, with Kedon Slovis finding Drake London wide open on the 4-yard pass.
What a shock! A Clancy Pendergast defense can’t stop a trick play. Has he ever been able to?
It’s 7-0 Iowa. USC’s defensive front didn’t get much pressure on Nate Stanley.
Drew Richmond is out. Jalen McKenzie will start at right tackle and Liam Jimmons at right guard.
