USC football: Tailback Ty Isaac finds the end zone

Ty Isaac found the end zone -- and got there twice.

USC’s freshman tailback, who began the season at the bottom of the depth chart because of his inexperience, has made the most of his opportunities.

On Saturday, he rushed for 87 yards in 11 carries and scored his first career touchdowns in USC’s 62-28 victory over California.

Isaac's four-yard run in the third quarter pushed USC's score to 55-14.

"I was thinking, 'No one is going to stop me. I've got to get in,' " he said.

Isaac then ran for a 37-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter for a 62-21 lead.

"I was just trying to get a first down, to be honest with you," he said. "And then it kind of opened up and I was like, 'Man, I'm going to go get it.' "
