LOS ANGELES -- In USC's most anticipated game of the season to date, its two smallest players stepped up in a big way.
The most memorable play from Stanford's 56-48 victory over USC likely will be McNeal's fumble into the end zone that ended the game in the third overtime. But without his earlier efforts, the Trojans wouldn't even be dreaming about forcing a fourth extra period.
They might have been the smallest guys on the field Saturday, but without RB Curtis McNeal and CB Nickell Robey, USC wouldn't have been close to Stanford.
