    It is close - I think the odds were more stacked against SC in the ND game, but this was also freaking amazing. great moment.

    no. not even close. 4th and nine was one play that allowed the streak to continue.

    this was a comedy of errors that worked in our favor. i'm stunned they didnt run the clock out. the pick. back to back PI fouls. just a horrible last minute for PSU who played a helluva game.

    Great game. But only because we won. Some of the worst defense I've seen in a while.

    ND game was clutch. It ranks higher. Both games showed a knack for not giving up.

    This was right there, very similar emotions during the game, but 4th and 9 is still my most exciting memory of USC football.

    But this is still great!

    Bush Push game is my favorite ever, but this was pretty awesome.

    At this moment, I would say this game. It may very well be the loads of adrenaline still coursing through my stretched-thin veins.

    Give me the overnight and I could probably giver you a more honest assessment. The 4th and 9 helped to keep a drive and eventual
    34-game winning streak alive. Tonight's victory just seemed so improbable even an hour ago.

    This is a different game differ team. 4-9 was epic along with Bush push! This field goal Rose Bowl victory was epic but belongs to this team!

    It's hard to top a come from behind victory over USC's greatest rival during one of it's brightest periods of the program, but if anything would top that, I think that maybe a come from behind victory in the Rose Bowl in the last seconds would give 4th and 9 a run for its money.

    This game above 4th and 9.
    To win and comeback the way we did, with a FRESHMAN at QB? Against a team that outscores their opponents in the second half by a margin of +209?
    Leinart, Reggie, Lendale, Smith, Jarrett, our entire O Line? They were expected to win and pulled it off, but had Veteran leadership.

    A Rose Bowl win is always better than a win over ND but the 4th and 9 was more exciting because the odds seemed greater and wasn't sure if Leinart would win. On the other hand, I had total confidence in Darnold. Rose>>>>>>>>ND.

    Yes, Much more exciting and better played, aspecially by the two QBs. This one was even more improbable.

    The 4th and 9 game was needed to get USC to the BCS title game. This Rose Bowl was not only a tough victory over Penn State but also a victory over what appeared to be terrible biased officiating. Of course like Donald Trump USC overcame the corruption.
