Could the Ed Orgeron-for-USC-head-coach campaign be hitting a snag?
Quarterback Brett Hundley threw for 111 yards and rushed for 34 to stake No. 22 UCLA out to a 14-7 lead over the No. 23 Trojans at halftime at the Coliseum.
Once again, the Bruins used a couple of their defensive weapons on offense, as two-way sensation Myles Jack scored UCLA’s first touchdown and defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes scored its second.
USC struggled on offense, gaining just 118 total yards. The lone bright spot for the Trojans was running back Javorious Allen, who rushed for 66 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries.
Will the Trojans go with Orgeron as their head coach if UCLA wins tonight? USC athletic director Pat Haden is going to have a lot of thinking to do if that happens. If USC loses, Orgeron will share one ignominious accomplishment with Lane Kiffin — both would be the only Trojan coaches to lose to UCLA and Notre Dame in the same season since 1995.
