After was was a disastrous start to the 2013 season, the USC Trojans are setting out today in the Las Vegas Bowl against Fresno State to end the season on a high note that not many expected they’d see. Not only can they get themselves a bowl win after everything, it would be their 10th win on the season.

To win this one today against a very good Fresno squad, the Trojans will need to be hitting on all cylinders, especially on offense.

On their first drive of the game, the Trojans did just that. The offense drove 60 yards down the field and were able to cap it all off with this 10-yard scoring play from quarterback Cody Kessler to wide receiver Marqise Lee:

So far, interim head coach Clay Helton is doing a fantastic job calling plays as the team awaits the beginning of the Steve Sarkisian era right after they get this game out of the way.
