As 2013 heads towards its close, it is time to look back on one of the wildest, most interesting seasons USC football has ever had along with the plays that made everything come together.
The Trojan highlight reel was as unique as anything else that took place for USC in 2013, with big plays, meaningful plays, jaw-dropping athleticism and record breakers.
The highlights feature names you might expect. The Biletnikoff Award Marqise Lee winner strutting his stuff. The quarterback Cody Kessler making things happen with the young, talented receiver Nelson Agholor on the other end. The beast rushing off the edge, Morgan Breslin, making quarterbacks days and nights that much more frightening.
However, there’s plenty of names you might not have figured. The linebacker-turned-running back, Tre Madden whose playmaking abilities could only be stopped by injury. The fullback, Soma Vainuku, whose special teams play turned him into one of the most dangerous weapons in the conference. And of course, the kicker whose terrible season didn’t stop him from providing one of the greatest moments of the year.
10) Lee’s Record Breaker
Marqise Lee didn’t score on this 51-yard reception and the Trojans lost the game, but the achievement of passing Johnnie Morton as USC’s all-time receiving yard leader deserves all the praise in the world.
