3 things we learned from the Trojans' win over Western Michigan

Emily Smith | Daily Trojan

The game isn't over yet, but Western Michigan is tied with No. 4 USC - yeah, that USC - and this ridiculously creative playcall is why.

The fourth-ranked Trojans exchanged scores with the Broncos for most of the afternoon and fell behind in the third quarter before a late pair of rushing touchdowns by running backs Ronald Jones and Stephen Carr powered them toward a 49-31 victory in their season opener.

Olson, who lost his left eye before his first birthday, got his shot Saturday in the fourth quarter of USC's 49-31 win over Western Michigan. This was his first time getting game action.

Western Michigan moved 75 yards, punctuated by a 27-yard scoring strike from Jon Wassink to Keishawn Watson, to reclaim the lead at 21-14 to open the second half, then had a chance to take complete control after intercepting Darnold for a second time.

Western Michigan threatened once it regained possession, reaching the red zone on a 48-yard rush by running back LeVante Bellamy that almost ended in a fumble.

First responders lifted the child from her mother's body and tried to revive the woman, but she never regained consciousness. The rescuers pulled them onto the boat, but Sulcer was unresponsive and the child was suffering from hypothermia .

An interception by defensive back Sam Beal. made over USC wide receiver Jalen Greene on the ensuing possession brought the Coliseum audience of 61,125 to a hush.

USC coach Chad Helton really wanted to get Jake Olson into a game at some point this season.

His first came late in the first half near midfield. Before Saturday, neither USC nor Western Michigan had faced a current member of the other's conference, the Pac-12 and the Mid-American.

Pentagon hasn't finalized Afghanistan troop numbers
