Justin Davis is ready for another chance against Notre Dame

Watch tailback Justin Davis talk about the Trojans’ game against Notre Dame

USC tailback Justin Davis said last season’s 14-10 loss at Notre Dame was “one of the worst moments of my life.”

Davis rushed for 12 yards in two carries before he suffered a season-ending ankle injury.

“I’ll remember it until I die,” he said.  “That makes me want to go in there and get revenge.”

Davis rushed for 37 yards in nine carries and caught a career-best four passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in last Saturday’s 38-20 loss to UCLA.


Davis said coaches told him before the game to “get ready” for more touches.

“I embraced the role,” he said.
