Ghanwoloku came over to the offensive side of the football early in the game and scored BYU’s first touchdown against the Trojans.
The DB’s most memorable play of the game came during overtime after BYU had taken a 30-27 lead. USC had possession of the football with the opportunity to tie the game with a field goal or win it with a touchdown.
After two plays, the Trojans were looking to convert a 3rd & 6. USC QB Kedon Slovis threw a pass that was intercepted by Ghanwoloku at the BYU 21 and the game was over.
