Improving Texas, No. 22 Southern Cal renew rivalry

USC Trojans at Texas Longhorns

  1. The Longhorns are seeking the 900th win in school history against the same team they beat for No. 800. That came along with a national title in the 2006 Rose Bowl victory over USC on Vince Young's late TD run. In the schools' only game since, they played another thriller last year, with the Trojans winning 27-24 in double OT.
  2. USC is surrendering 233.5 rushing yards per game and 6.5 per carry - both rank in the bottom five among Power 5 conference teams. The 467 rushing yards the Trojans have allowed are the most they've given up through two games in the past two decades.
  3. USC freshman JT Daniels is expected to make a third straight start despite bruising his throwing hand in last week's 17-3 loss at then-No. 10 Stanford. Daniels has the only touchdown pass this year for the Trojans, who have failed to throw for at least two TDs through two games for just the second time in 15 years.
  4. Texas is 5-6 in its last 11 games against AP Top 25 teams, and all but one of those losses have been by less than a touchdown. That includes last year's road loss to a fourth-ranked Trojans team.
  5. Sophomore Sam Ehlinger has passed for more than 220 yards in all eight of his career starts, but Texas is just 3-5 in those games. On the other hand, the Longhorns are 4-1 when he rushes for at least 40 yards. He threw for 298 yards last year at USC but was held to 10 yards on 19 rushing attempts.

Texas coach Tom Herman said his team is still a work in progress after the first two games of the 2018 season and he expects the Longhorns to take another step forward when they host No. 22 USC on Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in one of the college football campaign's most anticipated showdowns.

Herman's sentiments mirror those of USC coach Clay Helton -- the best is yet to come for his team.

Both the Longhorns and Trojans are 1-1 on the season and still trying to find out just how good they are going to be. Saturday's game will be a thorough examination in the most pressure-packed of situations.

Texas comes into the game with the Trojans on the heels of a tougher-than-expected 28-21 home win over Tulsa. Quarterback Sam Ehlinger finished 21 of 27 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and fumbled once against Tulsa but played well overall, especially at the end of the game when he engineered a 13-play scoring drive with the help of some check-down passes, including one on Texas' final TD.

Ehlinger had two crucial interceptions in the fourth quarter in the Longhorns' season-opening loss to Maryland on Sept. 1 and seemed none the worse for wear last week.

"Sam played really, really well, really well, managed the game well, checked us into some really good plays versus blitz," Texas coach Tom Herman said. "He handled the tempo well, he handled the uniqueness of Tulsa's defense well.

"We already have seen him play well as a true freshman against USC, so I'm excited for him to continue growing, with this weekend being one of the steps in his growth process, certainly."

USC heads to Austin to play for the first time since 1966 after losing 17-3 on the road at No. 9 Stanford last week. The three points were the fewest points in a game for the Trojans since being shut out by Washington in 1997.

Helton said Tuesday that true freshman quarterback JT Daniels is progressing well after sustaining a bruise to his right (throwing) hand during Saturday's loss.

"It's doing good," Helton told the Los Angeles Times. "We actually threw a little bit yesterday, just to see grip-wise and pain-wise where it's at, and he felt really good. He lifted this morning. He was functional yesterday. We've got a full-pad practice today. He was spinning it really good yesterday."

Daniels hit on 16 of 34 passes for 215 yards in the defeat and had two interceptions in the fourth quarter as the Trojans were trying to get back into the game late.

Even though the Trojans only put a field goal on the board last week, USC had six drives that advanced to at least the Cardinal 40. So, the Trojans can move the ball.

USC outlasted the Longhorns 27-24 in double overtime at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 2017 when Ehlinger, making his first college start, fumbled near the Trojans goal line. It was the first meeting between the two teams since Texas beat the Trojans in the 2005 BCS National Championship game in the Rose Bowl.

The Trojans don't recognize that game as a loss because that season's results were vacated by the NCAA when it decided star running back Reggie Bush received impermissible benefits. Without that loss counting, USC is now 5-0 against the Longhorns, according to the Trojans.

Texas' game notes release states that Saturday's game is the seventh all-time meeting and that USC holds a 5-1 series record.
