Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) – Travis Wilson’s 1-yard touchdown pass
to Kaelin Clay with eight seconds left lifted No. 19 Utah to a dramatic 24-21
win over No. 20 USC on Saturday night.
Utah’s winning drive came after the Trojans failed to convert on a 4th-and-2
and included an 18-yard scramble by Wilson to the 1-yard line.
He found Clay in the right side of the end zone two plays later, giving the
Utes (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) their first win in four games against USC (5-3, 4-2)
since joining the conference in 2011.
Wilson passed for 194 yards without an interception and Devontae Booker rushed
for 102 yards and a touchdown in the win. Utah’s first touchdown came on a 53-
yard fumble return by Davion Orphey in the first quarter.
Cody Kessler passed for 264 yards, two touchdowns and one interception a week
after throwing a USC-record seven touchdown passes in a win over Colorado. His
4-yard touchdown pass to Darreus Rogers gave the Trojans a 21-17 lead with
10:18 left in the game.
