All OK After Plane Carrying USC Football Team Tips Backward During Landing

Since former USC head coach Clay Helton departed the program, the Trojans have gotten off to an unusual start ahead of Saturday's game at Washington State.

After landing in Lewiston, Idaho, on Friday, the Trojans' team plane tipped backward on the tarmac, sending the plane's nose into the air after the grounds crew did not put the plane's tail stand in place, ESPN reports.

ESPN reports a USC spokesperson confirmed it happened during the deplaning process with coaches and staff members still on the plane. The players, who sit in the front half of the plane, had exited and no one was injured, the spokesperson said.

The grounds crew quickly leveled the plane, allowing the rest of the passengers to exit.

USC (1-1, 0-1 Pac-12) will look to rebound from its loss to Stanford last week in the first game under interim coach Donte Williams.
