No. 1 Southern California got another major scare Saturday night. But the electrifying Reggie Bush, playing the game of his life, wouldn't let the Trojans lose.
Bush, making a strong Heisman Trophy statement, ran for a career-high 294 yards on 23carries and scored twice, leading the Trojans to a wild 50-42 victory over No. 16 Fresno State and keeping their hopes alive for an unprecedented third straight national championship.
Bush, a Heisman finalist as a sophomore last year, also caught three passes for 68 yards and set a Pac-10 record with 513 all-purpose yards, easily breaking the USC standard of 368 set by Anthony Davis against Notre Dame in 1972.
