USC great Ronnie Lott turned 62 today.
Did you know on Sept. 27, 1980, Lott intercepted three passes in a 24-7 victory over Minnesota?
Two of the interceptions set up touchdowns.
On one play, he had an interception, fumble and fumble recovery but gained 25 yards.
“I was just trying to run too fast, and I lost the ball,” Lott said.
He didn’t think his performance was impressive: “I’ve just been in the right place. I’ve just been covering the curl, and then once the quarterback didn’t see me.”
The game at Minnesota’s Memorial Stadium drew 55,115, the largest crowd there since 1973.
