2019 Holiday Bowl Preview
The Trojans won their third in a row their last time out, besting the UCLA Bruins 52-35 at home.
USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis set a new school single-game passing record, throwing for 515 yards. He broke Matt Barkley’s mark of 493, set in 2012.
“Obviously it’s an honor to be among that list but I think it just reflect what the receiving core and the players around me,” Slovis said, according to 247 Sports. “Like [head coach Clay Helton] has said before, the receivers have over 100 yards and I don’t think any of those other guys had an opportunity to have their four receivers do that, making it a testament to the players here.”
For the first time in program history, the Trojans had four players surpass 100 receiving yards in a game. Michael Pittman (104 yards) joined fellow wideouts Drake London (142 yards), Amon-Ra St. Brown (128), and Tyler Vaughns in the 100-plus club with a 7-yard catch with five minutes on the clock, his 13th grab of the game.
“So, we actually did know that [I was under 100 yards],” Pittman said, per 247 Sports. “I had like three yards to get and then we just threw it real quick and then I came out the game. But, I mean, if we would have kept playing it would have happened anyway, so.”
The Hawkeyes have also won three straight. In their regular season finale, they edged the Nebraska Cornhuskers 27-24 on kicker Keith Duncan’s 48-yard field goal with a second remaining on a cold and damp afternoon.
Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz awarded Duncan, who walked on in 2016, a scholarship after the victory.
“Every field goal I’m hungry for, especially in a situation like that with tough conditions,” Hawkeyes kicker Keith Duncan said, according to The Associated Press. “That’s why you become a kicker. You’ve got to be hungry and not scared.”
Hawkeyes defensive end A.J. Epenesa recorded a pair of sacks, setting career highs with 14 tackles and 4.5 tackles for loss.
“You always love to win this game,” Epenesa said, per AP. “They joined the Big Ten not too long ago but it’s turned into a pretty hard-headed rivalry between the two of us. If it’s between whose corn is better, which team you like more or what state you’re from, there’s a lot of pride on both sides of this. When you can come out and win it, especially in other people’s stadium, it adds a little extra to it.”
