“Prayers up for Travis Dye,” former Trojans running back Reggie Bush said in a tweet. “Wishing you a speedy recovery! You can’t replace a guy like that.”

With Dye being sidelined, head coach Lincoln Riley will have to turn to a senior and a freshman to fill the void. Austin Jones and Raleek Brown will get more time.

In the first half against the Buffaloes, Jones had two carries for eight yards.

Through ten games in his first season with the Trojans, Dye has had 145 carries for 884 yards and nine touchdowns.

Due to the injury, Dye will have just his second game at USC without a touchdown. He had scored in eight straight games.
