USC avoids scare in season opener with win over Western Michigan

USC Trojans vs Western Michigan Broncos football live: tv channel schedule, start time, odds, preview, scores and updates

But then the Trojans went 3-and-out on its next possession, and Western Michigan responded with an 8-play, 59-yard touchdown drive to tie the game.

With the score knotted at 28 apiece midway through the fourth quarter, Jones charged forward, hurdled a couple potential tacklers and broke outside for a 37-yard touchdown run.

Jake Olson, who has been blind since age 12 according to the Pac-12 Network, snapped the ball for the first time in a live game on Saturday when USC beat Western Michigan 49-31.

Unfortunately for the Broncos, that's when USC decided it was time to turn to its rushing attack and put the game away. Carr added 69 yards and two scores on his seven carries.

Here are five takeaways from the USC vs. A pick six on Western Michigan's next possession would be the final nail in the Broncos' coffin.

The loss was Western Michigan's (0-1) first regular-season setback since falling to Northern Illinois on November 18, 2015, a streak of 14 games. The offensive line continuously let Sam Darnold get pressured and gave up two sacks (that's two more than a very good Penn St. defense got in the Rose Bowl), was called for several penalties, and struggled with consistency in the run game. Jones totaled 1,082 rushing yards last season after gaining 987 as a freshman in 2015, and should join Darnold in the early Heisman Trophy discussion.
