Watch: USC robbed of safety against Texas

Texas USC safety

USC was the victim of a bad call by the officials during Saturday night’s game at Texas.

The Longhorns had a 2nd-and-6 at their 7-yard-line with around six minutes left in the second quarter when Sam Ehlinger was sacked by Porter Gustin in the end zone. Though it was clear on replay that the play should have been called a safety, the officials said Ehlinger got out of the end zone and placed the ball at the one.

USC was up 14-13 at the time and should have gone up 16-13 and received the ball back if a safety were correctly called. Instead, Texas punted on the possession, then USC punted, and then Texas ended the half with a field goal to take a 16-14 lead.

That was a really bad break for the Trojans.
