I wrote this morning about John McKay benching five starters after losing his USC debut to Oregon State, 14-0, in 1960 as the Trojans fumbled five times.
Well, McKay didn’t get his first win until Game 4 when the Trojans defeated Georgia, 10-3, at the Coliseum. Georgia featured QB Fran Tarkenton but the Friday night game drew only 28,120. USC intercepted Tarkenton four times.
“This will be the first night in a long time that I’ll sleep after a game,” McKay said.
Note that USC wore its white jerseys for a home game.
Look how happy Jim Samuel was after the game.
And is running back Lynn Gaskill drinking a coke at halftime? My kind of team.
