Cardiac Cougars! BYU Beats USC in OT

NCAA Football: Southern California at Brigham Young Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports


One week after beating Tennessee in double OT, Dayan Ghanwoloku sealed this victory with an interception as BYU beat #24 USC, 30-27.

Zach Wilson threw for 280 yards with 2 total TDs and Ty’Son Williams rushed for 99 yards to lead the Cougar offense. Wilson came up with some huge improvised plays to keep BYU’s offense alive and engineer a fourth quarter comeback.

BYU’s defense gave up 452 yards, but they pressured USC freshman QB Kedon Slovis into 3 interceptions and forced USC to abandon the passing game in the second half.

Overall, gutsy performance by the whole team. BYU made some questionable decisions, but they came through when it mattered most and are now in the midst of one the highest points in the independence era.

BYU now welcomes Washington into Provo next Saturday in what is sure to be a raucous environment in Lavell Edwards Stadium.
