Trojans kicker hits 53-yard FG to lift No. 14 USC over No. 13 Stanford

STANFORD, Calif. -- Andre Heidari kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal with 2:30 remaining, J.R. Tavai forced a fumble to end Stanford's comeback bid and No. 14 Southern California held off the No. 13 Cardinal 13-10 Saturday.

Orgeron proving he's more than just a quick fix

LOS ANGELES So much in the Coliseum on Saturday night was predicated on a chance. For interim head coach Ed Orgeron, his was the chance to prove he could lead a team to victory over a top-5 opponent and he wasn't just a quick fix to a bad situation. For the USC Trojans it was snapping a four-game losing streak to No. 4 Stanford. For Andre Heidari, it was a chance at redemption...

WATCH: USC makes 47-yard field goal to beat Stanford

Stanford, by virtue of its loss to Utah earlier this season, was already a long shot to have a chance at playing in the BCS National Championship Game. But after tonight’s defeat, the Cardinal are probably going to be on the outside looking in for any of the BCS bowl games. USC, which is now 5-1 since the firing of Lane Kiffin, did the unthinkable and knocked off No. 4 Stanford...

USC's K Heidari bounces back, regains form

LOS ANGELES As USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron put it, kicker Andre Heidari was "very close" to losing his job following the Trojans loss at Notre Dame. The competition opened up and Heidari proved he wasn't ready to give up his spot. Last Saturday in the Coliseum, he backed it up in a 4-of-5 performance in the team's win over Utah. Heidari's four field...

Referee blows FG call at Hyundai Sun Bowl (Video)

USC bans writer for reporting injury to kicker Andre Heidari

USC just can’t keep themselves out of the news these days. Which is usually a good thing. But when all the news seems to be painting the program in a negative light, it certainly isn’t a good thing. Just in the past month alone, USC has banned visiting teams from conducting walk-throughs at the Coliseum and they have pulled the scholarship of a walk-on player so it could be given...
