Arizona State: LenDale White

In his three seasons as USC’s co-starter at running back, LenDale White ran for more yards against Arizona State than any other team he played. And he did so in record-breaking fashion.

As freshman in 2003, White’s 140 rushing yards against the Sun Devils set a single game freshmen rushing record at USC that stood until 2015. More importantly however, his performance single handedly picked the Trojans up off the mat following a heartbreaking loss to Cal the week before.

USC was down 17-10 midway through the third quarter when White rattled off a 25-yard touchdown run to tie the game and start a run of 27 unanswered points. In all, he scored twice, including the final tally to make it 37-17 just 16 minutes after his first.

Two years later as a junior, White was a catalyst to yet another comeback in Tempe. This one, a wee bit more heroic. ASU jumped out to a 21-3 lead on No. 1 USC, who entered the game winners of 25 straight games.

Once again, White scored the first and final touchdowns of the comeback. He had a 32-yard score early in the third quarter to pull within 21-10, followed by a 46-yard dagger with just two minutes left to ice a 38-28 victory.

‘ASU Killer’ White’s 197 yards were a career high, and the Trojans would escape Sun Devil Stadium with their streak intact for another week.
