SEATTLE (AP) – Erik Folk kicked a 22-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining and Washington’s fired-up defense stymied fill-in quarterback Aaron Corp and No. 3 Southern California in a 16-13 victory Saturday.
It’s the second consecutive season the Trojans have lost their Pac-10 opener days after an impressive win over the Buckeyes. This one will gnaw at USC coach Pete Carroll, who lost to former Trojans offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, now Washington’s first-year coach.
Corp, a redshirt sophomore making his first career start, was 13 for 22 for 110 yards with one interception.
USC – with freshman star quarterback Matt Barkley out with a bruised shoulder – was held to its lowest point total since a 13-9 loss to UCLA on Dec. 2, 2006.
