Watch: Lights go out during Oregon-USC game

Sunday March 6th, 2016

The lights at the Galen Center in Los Angeles went out during USC’s game against Oregon on Saturday.

With the Ducks up by nine at the 5:27 mark in the first half, Oregon freshman Tyler Dorsey had the ball on the left wing when the lights in the arena shut off. According to a school spokesman, a city electrical grid went down, causing a power surge that took the arena’s electricity out for 10 minutes.

Students held their smartphones in the air to provide light, while the Trojans band played.

No. 9 Oregon went on to win 76–66, improving to 25–6 on the year. USC fell to 20–11.
