2020 #USCtotheNFL Week 3 Recap

Sep 29, 2020

#USCtotheNFL Weekly Schedule | Trojans on NFL Rosters

Three weeks into the NFL season, USC alumni are still consistently producing on both sides of the ball.

It was a particularly big week for WRU, as Deontay Burnett was elevated to the Eagles active roster. That gave USC five former wide receivers (JuJu Smith-Schuster, Robert Woods, Nelson Agholor, Michael Pittman Jr. and Deontay Burnett) on active rosters. All five caught passes this weekend for a total of 17 catches, 194 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Smith-Schuster celebrated in style after his touchdown with a popular TikTok dance.
 

Browns LB Malcolm Smith became the first USC alum to haul in an interception on the season — the 7th of his career.

Cowboys DL Antwaun Woods notched his first sack of the season, while Giants DL Leonard Williams and Cardinals LB Devon Kennard each got their second.

Trojans faced off against each other in a number of games, and Bills QB Matt Barkley was happy to link up with Woods, his favorite target during their time at Troy.
