College Football: USC Trojans bury the Ohio State Buckeyes

94,000 bodies funneled into the Los Angeles Coliseum to witness the Ohio State Buckeyes play the USC Trojans for the first time in eighteen years (broadcast on ESPN via ABC).  By halftime, the Trojans had female dog-slapped the Buckeyes 21 to 3.  USC touchdowns courtesy of quarterback Mark Sanchez fullback Stanley Havili, tight-end Blake Ayles, and linebacker Rey Maualuga’s interception and forty-eight yard run into the end zone.

The Trojans increased their lead again in the latter half of the third quarter with two touchdowns by wide receiver Damian Williams.   USC 35 and Ohio State 3.  Final score.

Observations & Miscellania:

1. Kirk Herbstreit and Brent Musberger provided commentary.

2. Kenny Chesney’s song “Wild Ride” serves as ESPN’s Saturday Night Football opening number.

3. The Buckeyes’ uniforms reminded me of red peppermint candies and off-white Chuck Taylors.  The Trojans’ uniforms reminded me of ketchup and mustard.

4. O.A.R’s song “Shattered” was used in a montage game summary after halftime.
