High Scoring Huddle: Big Day for Sanchez, Corp, Galippo, Patterson
Sanchez at the helm of the Cardinal team. Image via Some 17,000 USC fans showed up at Saturday morning's Trojan Huddle, and what a game it was. The 97-play scrimmage continued all the way into double-overtime, culminating with backups Mustain & Corp's White team win over (primarily) Sanchez' Cardinal club, 39-36. Despite the loss, Sanchez came out a winner, playing his entire game against a solid first team defense that included the likes of Rey Maualuga, Brian Cushing and Taylor Mays. Redshirt junior and heir-apparent to USC's coveted QB position, Mark Sanchez hit a commendable 16 of 24 for 203 yards and three touchdowns, two on short passes to both running back CJ Gable and tight end Rhett Ellison, and one amazing 37-yard TD strike to receiver/returner Ronald Johnson in the corner of the endzone. That said, Sanchez had the only interception of the game, on an ill-rehearsed "what the hell" flea-flicker pass that landed right in the hands of linebacker Luthur Brown. Still the fact they even attempted it seemed reminiscent of the football-trickery sometimes employed by the likes of Leinart, Bush and Jarrett. But the surprises weren't over the Trojan Huddle progressed it became clear it was going to be a big day for the (not so) little guys.
