Williams then got ready and was able to fire a pass to wide receiver Brenden Rice, who landed a catch with two defenders draped over him. The 30-yard throw and catch put the Trojans on the goal line and a few plays later Williams threw a touchdown pass to Terrell Bynum.
The score helped USC go 14-0 in the second quarter, but Tulane came back with two touchdown passes, including an 87-yard pass from quarterback Michael Pratt to Jha’Quan Jackson.
USC led 28-14 at halftime. Williams was 20 of 29 with 253 passing yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
