The game was insane. The atmosphere was electric. The game had the perfect ending.
The Drive–as it is now called–will be etched into the rich history that is USC.
With a stadium rocking for 59 total minutes without sitting down, being on the sidelines was exhilarating. And that last minute of silence in The Horseshoe was the most gratifying.
The fly back home was a lot more fun after the sweet victory. It was the most nerve-racking game I have ever been a part of, and with the late surge, it just made the victory that much sweeter!
First of all, here are a few photos of the Thursday departure, rolling into Friday’s walk-thru, including some shots of beautiful Ohio Statdium:
