Well, I'll be gah-danged.

Can't honestly say that anyone really saw this coming.

USC can't stop Jacquizz Rodgers. Period. He's already got 117 yards rushing and 22 more through the air. Lyle Moevao, the subject of many a fat joke on this here blog, is running roughshod over the Trojans secondary, throwing two touchdowns to James Rodgers.

And something else that shouldn't be stunning: USC has already taken two of those new-fangled horse collar tackle penalties and a really stupid roughing the passer penalty with :11 seconds left in the half. They took another on OSU's third touchdown that was declined anyway.

Speaking of the third touchdown, what a ballsy call from Mike Riley to go for six rather than settle for the easy three with less than 10 seconds left in the 2nd quarter. Rodgers second touchdown was a lucky break after the ball squeaked through CB Kevin Thomas' hands and right to James.

On a side note, Erin Andrews looks absolutely AMAZING tonight. Like, more so than usual. Makes this potential enormous upset just that much appealing.

In the interests of equal reporting, USC also trailed Oregon State by 21 back during that 2006 upset in which they almost came back to win.

Stay tuned.

PS: When did Oregon State move back to Parker Stadium? Click on the scoreboard and look closely at it. Pretty sure OSU plays at Reser.
