USC’s starters saw very little action, as the backups played the majority of the contest. The only scores came courtesy of a Landon Ard field goal and a six-yard touchdown pass from Connor Mitch to Shamier Jeffrey, who had only one catch on the afternoon. Shaq Roland was USC’s top receiver during the scrimmage, with three receptions for 40 yards.
