USC Vs. Oregon Score: Trojans Strike First Amid Swirling Defenses

The Oregon Ducks came out looking like they wouldn't allow a USC Trojans yard all night, but a 59-yard touchdown scamper by freshman Marqise Lee put a stop to all that. For reference, the Trojans have 68 total yards.

Head here for USC-Oregon score updates and conversation.

Oregon's offense hasn't gotten a whole lot going either, putting up 33 yards before reaching a fourth-and-eight conversion attempt in USC turf. The effort resulted in a dropped screen pass, and we might be looking at another of those slow starts by the Ducks.

That's the kind of thing that flies against lower competition, but USC's defense looks every bit as motivated as Oregon's has. We'll see if the Trojans can keep the pressure on as this game progresses.
