LOS ANGELES — Fresh­man Chase McGrath kicked a 43-yard field goal in the sec­ond over­time after hit­ting a ty­ing 31-yarder on the fi­nal snap of reg­u­la­tion, and No. 4 South­ern Cal­i­for­nia ral­lied for a wild 27-24 vic­tory over Texas on Satur­day night.

Sam Darnold passed for 397 yards and three touch­downs to help the Tro­jans (3-0) surge to their 12th con­sec­u­tive vic­tory.

Eh­linger passed for 298 yards and led a 91-yard, goa­head TD drive late in reg­u­la­tion for the Longhorns (1-2), who were nar­rowly de­nied a huge win early in coach Tom Her­man’s de­but sea­son.
