Wide receiver Bru McCoy made an incredible touchdown catch for his first career score with USC football against ASU.
USC football made an incredible comeback late in the fourth quarter against ASU and it all started with an incredible touchdown catch from Bru McCoy.
The Trojans were in desperation mode as Kedon Slovis heaved a pass for Amon-Ra St. Brown in the endzone. The ASU defense had that covered, but St. Brown’s tip floated right into the arms of McCoy instead.
Just like that, USC cut the Sun Devil lead to six points.
As amazing as that catch was, it wasn’t the most unlikely play the Trojans converted as the clock clicked down in the fourth quarter. The ensuing kickoff for USC was an onside kick which the Trojans managed to recover.
Then on fourth-and-nine in the red zone, Kedon Slovis found Drake London in the endzone for the go-ahead touchdown.
It was an amazing sequence made possibly by McCoy’s heads up play.
Bru McCoy finally gets to make an impact for USC football
McCoy has had a wild ride in his young college career. He committed and signed with the Trojans in the class of 2019, but decided to leave when offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury took an NFL job. He transferred to Texas and spent the spring there, however, he was struck with homesickness. By the summer, he had decided to return to USC.
The transfer saga meant McCoy had to take a redshirt in 2019, but he was further prevented from contributing in practice when he was stricken with a never-ending series of mysterious fevers.
After recovering from that, McCoy was finally able to spend 2020 practicing with the Trojans before the coronaviurs pandemic denied him his first Spring Camp in Troy.
It took longer than hoped, but he finally got the chance on Saturday during the season opener to show why he was a five-star prospect in high school.
