Quote of the day: "You can’t help but think in the back of your head about Arizona State, but you just have to have confidence in your defense that they’re going to stop them and they did."

-- USC tailback Justin Davis, on Nebraska's Hail Mary attempt

USC defeated Nebraska, 45-42, in the Holiday Bowl on Saturday at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Trojans finish the season 9-4 overall and 6-3 in the Pac-12 Conference.
