Saturday's Coming: 10 Days to USC

| No TrackBacks

For the final 10 days before Golden Gopher Football opens the 2011 season against the USC Trojans at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Sept. 3, will feature a new video vignette highlighting the matchup between these two storied programs. These might include insight from current and former players and coaches, highlights from previous battles and even insight from fans looking forward to the start of the Jerry Kill era.

Today's feature is a highlight from the Gophers 1955 25-19 win over the Trojans on Oct. 29, 1955.

1955 would be considered a down season for Golden Gopher football. A year removed from finishing 7-2 and ranked 20th in the nation's final poll, Murray Warmath's team opened the season 1-4 as they welcomed 10th-ranked USC into town.

Already up 12-6 in the third quarter, amid a snow/sleet mix and temperatures hovering in the mid-30s, Gopher quarterback Don Swanson called his own number and scampered 65 yards for the touchdown. You can read more about that game by clicking here.

That's Day 10 in our Countdown to USC -- check back tomorrow for #9 on our list. Saturday's Coming!
