USC Vs. Washington Football: Trojans Look To Prevent Erik Folk Threepeat

Washington Huskies senior placekicker Erik Folk, a graduate of Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, has beaten the USC Trojans with a last-second field goal in each of the last two seasons. On Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, it's up to Matt Barkley and the Trojans not to give Folk a chance for a third consecutive game-winner.

In 2009 in Seattle, the No. 3 Trojans were without Barkley, who suffered a bone bruise. Aaron Corp was ineffective as his backup, and the Huskies drove into position for Folk to hit a 22-yard field goal for a 16-13 win.

In 2010 in Los Angeles, Folk's 32-yarder at the buzzer was his fourth field goal of the night in a 32-31 Washington win. USC allowed a whopping 536 yards in that loss last year, and an exasperated Lane Kiffin told the Los Angeles Times, "I don't know if I've been around a game with so many opportunities to win. So many times we could have closed this thing out or made a play to end the thing."

Folk this season has made nine of 11 field goals for Washington.
