USC receiver George Farmer is ready for a repeat performance

USC receiver George Farmer will try to build on an outstanding performance in the regular-season finale

USC receiver George Farmer had an outstanding performance in the regular-season finale against Notre Dame.

A repeat in Saturday’s Holiday Bowl against Nebraska could jump-start the fourth-year junior’s 2015 season.

“It is something I can definitely build upon,” said Farmer, who caught two touchdown passes against the Fighting Irish, one on a career-long 48-yard play.

Farmer is the son of former NFL receiver George Farmer, who played for the Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins.

Being the son of a former pro brings pressure, but Farmer said his father provided guidance and served as a role model.

“He knows what’s going on and what to look for,” Farmer said. “Him being by my side has been a great blessing.”
