Nelson Agholor scores for USC on a 54-yard punt return

It was almost as if if USC return man Nelson Agholor had ears in the broadcast booth.

Seconds after the FOX play-by-play man mentioned that Agholor had yet to return a punt for a touchdown this season, Agholor took this punt 54-yards to the house.

His longest return on the season prior to this one went for 11 yards, which is more amazing considering how deadly of a return man Agholor was last year. In 2013, Agholor averaged 19.1 yards per punt return and took two for touchdowns.

The bad news: it wasn't enough for USC, which fell 38-34 after a Hail Mary play from ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici to receiver Jaelen Strong ended the game.
