ESPN includes 2 USC contests on list of 2017 season’s top college football games

It’s been a memorable season for USC in many ways. The Trojans won their first Pac-12 title since 2008, which was also the last time they got to 11 victories, and now they’re set to play in a New Year’s Six bowl game for the second year in a row when they face Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29.

And the individual games themselves also produced some big moments, such as the victory over Stanford to win the Pac-12 title earlier this month.

Two other games were big enough to make ESPN’s list of the 20 best games of the 2017 season: the Sept. 16 win overtime win against Texas ranked 10 th while USC’s loss at Washington State on Sept. 29 was ninth.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold was singled out in both games, for leading USC down the field for the game-tying field goal against Texas to force OT as well as the strip sack of Darnold that prevented a comeback against WSU.
