PROVO, Utah – BYU quarterback Zach Wilson had an impressive touchdown drive in the fourth quarter against USC to give the Cougars a 27-24 lead. Two of the plays on the drive drew comparisons of Heisman Trophy-winning QB Johnny Manziel.

Wilson hit Gunner Romney for a 35-yard completion after escaping pressure and stepping up in the pocket to find the Cougar wideout.

A couple plays later, Wilson took the ball himself and scampered 16-yards for the go-ahead touchdown.

Wilson’s TD run gave BYU a three-point lead with 5:41 left in the game.
