Washington vs. USC update: Huskies cut deficit to 24-14

The Washington Huskies cut into a 24-7 halftime deficit with some big plays, and they now trail the No. 11 USC Trojans 24-14 at the end of the third quarter.

The Huskies got back on the board with aggressive play-calling after blocking a 41-yard field goal attempt from USC's Andre Heidari. Immediately after the blocked field goal, Keith Price hit tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins up the sideline for a 34-yard gain. The next play was a 21-yard pass to DiAndre Campbell, and then Seferian-Jenkins later capped the drive with a 29-yard touchdown reception.

After cutting it to 24-14, Washington began its next possession at the USC 46 after a 27-yard punt return from Cody Bruns. But the Huskies would gain only 17 yards on the possession, and failed to score when Travis Coons missed a 45-yard field goal.

The Trojans were held to just 63 yards of offense in the quarter after tallying 233 yards in the first half, but the Trojans have still outgained Washington 296-198.
