USC Finds Its Quarterback
USC quarterback Kedon Slovis had the student section chanting his name as he made a memorable debut in the Trojans’ 45-20 victory over Stanford.
"I didn't hear that. That's pretty cool I guess,” Slovis said.
Slovis had a masterful debut and started off with a beautiful deep pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown.
"I was worried he was gonna get killed after it," Slovis joked.
USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell defended his decision to start JT Daniels after the game.
"He showed flashes of being great from the beginning. I think he was in it until the end. He had some days where he made some freshman mistakes and JT Daniels was more consistent.
“"He did his job (against Stanford) and did it well. From the beginning, I told you he was a special kid. We expect we’re going to run our offense and he’s going to execute it."
