It’s hard to believe after the way the game started, but it’s OK, you can admit it. You were thinking the same thing everyone else was thinking there in the final couple of minutes on Thursday night.
Oh no, not again. This can’t possibly happen to USC again.
The fact it was actually possible, that Cal, after being down 31-2 at one point in a runaway first half, came within a missed onside kick and a couple of skipped heartbeats of having a chance to tie it at 38, turned what should have been a happy overpowering victory for the Trojans into another disappointing aftermath.
