Although USC was heavily favored to win, BC played with courage, strength and selflessness- all traits that Crowther displayed on the day of his death. The Eagles were able to pull off an upset win in his honor, beating the Trojans in a nail biter, 37-31.
Boston College showed tremendous strength on the ground, and had 451 rushing yards for 5 touchdowns. USC on the other hand, was held to only 20 yards on the ground. Boston College really came up big in the clutch, and in conclusion were able to beat a Top 10 ranked team, while unranked for the 5th time in school history.
It was best put it this way, by ESPN announcer Brad Nessler, "On a Red Bandana night, it's going to be a red letter day for Boston College."
