Despite losing JT Daniels for the season to a torn ACL and meniscus, it looks as if USC will be just fine.
True freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis torched No. 23 Stanford’s defense Saturday night in-front of a rocking Coliseum crowd, completing almost 85 percent of his throws for 377 yards and three touchdowns as USC rocked Stanford, 45-20.
“We knew his talent and we understood the type of players our quarterbacks are,” USC head coach Clay Helton said of Slovis. “Even though he’s young, we named him the No. 2 for a reason. Let’s cut him loose.”
Slovis, who became just the fifth USC true freshman to start at quarterback, finished with a 210.8 QBR and the Trojan air-raid offense looked as quick-hitting and efficient as ever. His completion percentage and passing yards both set USC true freshman records for a first career start.
“I thought (the performance) was pretty good,” Slovis said. “But at the same time, how good is it with these guys? It doesn’t show how well I did but how good a team we have.”
