The USC Trojans are off to a tremendous start offensively today in the Las Vegas Bowl against the Fresno State Bulldogs. We knew coming in that the Fresno defense would maybe have some trouble dealing with the athletic receivers of USC, and that has been the case so far.
Between Marqise Lee and Nelson Agholor, though, it’s been Agholor that’s been putting in a good amount of the work today.
A good example of this was on a USC drive in the second quarter in which Agholor followed up his previous touchdown catch with a nice catch-and-run on this pass from Cody Kessler:
So far, it doesn’t seem as if the Fresno State defense was remotely ready to deal with the athleticism of the USC offense. Interim coach Clay Helton has made some amazing play calls so far in this one that have given his guys some good opportunities to make some plays, such as this one.
This has the potential to get ugly.
