Redd carried six times for 19 yards before leaving the game. He also caught a 12-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Backup Javorius Allen has been dominant in his absence, running six times for 135 yards and two touchdowns, including a 79-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter. Allen also caught a 57-yard touchdown pass.
Redd has struggled with injuries throughout the season. He missed the Trojans' first five games after tearing the meniscus in his left knee during spring practice. Redd has 76 carries for 351 yards this season, scoring just one rushing touchdown.
