Deadspin points to the video. (But first, let's be clear about something: USC plays in Los Angeles. This team is South Carolina. They are not USC. I refuse to stand for this, Deadspin.)
But second, and more importantly, that's an awesome hit. I can't find video of it, but there's a mildly funny Buffalo Wild Wings ad where the referee goes under the replay hood, which is really video-conferenced to the local BWW, where they tell the zebra, "We don't want to go home yet. Can you send this one to overtime?" He proceeds to make a call a particular way. The closing shot, though, is the relevant one: wide receiver has broken free down the sideline until, oops, the referee sticks his foot out and totally takes the guy down.
So, in short, yes, college football has devolved into an ad for a chain sports bar.
