USC held a 70-play scrimmage today and it’s one the offense will likely forget immediately. The kickers were 3 for 9 on field goals. Clay Helton said he might need to be more aggressive on fourth down situations and kick less, like on fourth-and-4 plays.
Sam Darnold’s streak without an interception came to an end as Ajene Harris made a nice one-handed grab near the end zone. The first-team offense did little against the first-team defense. The first-team offensive line has had trouble running the ball in particular.
Tailback Stephen Carr had a 45-yard run but it was against the third-team defense. Helton liked defensive ends Porter Gustin and Uchenna Nwosu on defense and said cornerback Iman Marshall had his best of practice.
