NBC Los Angeles is reporting that at least 10 people were injured during the USC Trojans' huge upset win over the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal:

According to the news station, five people were hurt while fans rushed the field to celebrate the win, while five others were reported as hurt prior to the game ending. 

The fire department received calls about 8:33 p.m., one for cardiac arrest and another for chest pain, said Katherine Main of the LA City Fire Department.

Five people were hurt after the game when fans rushed the field after the win, Main said. One person had a broken ankle, and another was hurt in a fall.

ABC 7 reported that all people injured at the game were transported to the hospital without life-threatening injuries:

The Trojans upset the Cardinal on Saturday night 20-17, with the final blow coming with 19 seconds left as USC kicker Andre Heidari booted a 47-yard field goal. USC is now 8-3 overall and 5-1 under interim head coach Ed Orgeron. 

In the moments following the win, students and fans rushed the field to celebrate the program's first win over a ranked opponent since 2011. It was also the first time USC had beaten Stanford in the Coliseum in its last four tries, as the Cardinal had won three straight times on the road against the Trojans. 

For the Cardinal, the loss effectively knocked them out of contention for a berth into the BCS National Championship.
