Postgame video of California defensive end Devante Wilson, who had career day against former teammates at USC

LOS ANGELES -- DeVante Wilson talks about his return to USC, and Cal's par-for-the-course outing against the Trojans' rushing attack.

LOS ANGELES -- California senior defensive end DeVante Wilson once signed with USC, and was in the Trojans program for a year before heading to Riverside City College. On Thursday, he made his first visit back to the Coliseum, and forced two fumbles, tallying 3.0 tackles and one sack.

With just over eight minutes left in the first half, the Bears got their first break after going down 21-0 to USC, when a sack by Wilson on freshman quarterback Sam Darnold set the ball loose out of freshman Darnold's hands. It bounced away from Cameron Saffle, but into the hands of defensive tackle James Looney, who dragged three would-be tacklers 20 yards down to the USC 22. Two plays later, Davis Webb found running back Tre Watson on the right edge for a 22-yard touchdown pass with 7:55 left in the half.'

Another strip by Wilson led to a 27-yard Matt Anderson field goal with 1:54 left in the half, with Webb finding Demetris Robertson for 32 and 23 yards as part of the nine-play scoring drive.
