  01/06/23 - Jordan BurchSr/2024, Oregon + More +

  South Carolina has lost another high-profile player to the NCAA transfer portal. Edge rusher Jordan Burch, one of the most highly ranked recruits in program history and one who had flashes of brilliance during his three-year career, entered the portal on Thursday, USC confirmed. He was third on the team with 60 tackles this year and first with 14 quarterback hurries. A Columbia native who played under USC alum Erik Kimrey at The Hammond School, Burch was second only to national No. 1 recruit Jadeveon Clowney in terms of the highest-rated prospects to ever pick USC. He only started one game in his first two seasons as he was behind entrenched edge rushers, but started every game in 2022.

Burch recorded 3.5 sacks and 7.5 tackles for loss this season with one recovered fumble. He was many times a hair away from completing a sack or affecting the quarterback and USC also used him in other ways, such as an offensive lineman and receiver in the Gator Bowl. He finishes his USC career with 4.5 sacks and scored on a 61-yard interception return for a touchdown in the 2021 season-opener. - The Post and Courier

  Bo Nix threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Chase Cota on fourth down with 19 seconds left and Camden Lewis' PAT bounced off the left upright and went through to give No. 15 Oregon a wild 28-27 victory against North Carolina in the Holiday Bowl on Wednesday night at Petco Park. Cota caught the ball at about the 1 and got it across the goal line as he was being tackled by Don Chapman. The play was upheld on review. Lewis then banked in the PAT. North Carolina (9-5) got the ball to the Oregon 42 with one second left before Drake Maye's desperation heave into the end zone fell incomplete. The Ducks finished 10-3 thanks to Nix, who came up big late in the fourth quarter after being held in check much of the second half. He threw a 6-yard TD pass to Troy Franklin with 6:58 to go to pull the Ducks to 24-21.

The Tar Heels took a 27-21 lead with 2:34 to go on Noah Burnette's 44-yard field goal, his second of the quarter. Nix then moved the Ducks 79 yards in eight plays for the win, with the drive being aided by a pass interference call. Nix was 23 of 30 for 205 yards and two touchdowns, with one interception. Maye, the ACC Offensive Player of the Year, was 18 of 35 for 206 yards and three scores. The Tar Heels took a 21-14 lead on Maye's 49-yard TD pass to Kobe Paysour just before halftime that was set up by an incredible interception by linebacker Power Echols. Echols' jaw-dropping interception and 40-yard return gave the Tar Heels the ball at the Oregon 49. With the score tied at 14 and Oregon driving late in the second quarter, Nix threw behind Terrance Ferguson and the ball bounced off the right calf of linebacker Cedric Gray toward Echols, who tipped it up with his right foot before bending over and grabbing it and taking off to the Oregon 49. - Oregon/AP College Football
