Here’s USC wide receiver Erik Affholter making a catch and run against UCLA cornerback Marcus Turner in 1987. Affholter had a famous/controversial 33-yard TD catch in that game to lead the Trojans to 17-13 victory.
What many people forget is that after Affholter’s TD catch, USC safety Mark Carrier intercepted a Troy Aikman pass in the final minute to seal the victory.
- USC is a 15-point underdog to Alabama per BetOnline. Every point spread I’ve seen is between 14-16.5 points.
