Few moments in USC football history were more memorable than the comeback against Notre Dame in 1974. Trailing the Irish, 24-0, late in the first half, the Trojans scored 55 unanswered points to win, 55-24.
The USC baseball program can look back to a game like that too.
It happened 26 years ago today, at the College World Series in Omaha.
Trailing Minnesota, 7-0, in the bottom of the ninth inning, USC won, 8-7.
For eight innings, Minnesota's 6-foot-6, 220-pound pitcher, Dave Winfield, gave the Trojans fits. They had only an infield single through eight innings.
But USC staged a remarkable eight-run rally in the last of the ninth, capped by Creighton Tevlin's single--USC's eighth hit of the inning--to drive in pinch-runner Marvin Cobb with the winning run.
