In college, Ervins' touchdown run won the 1990 Rose Bowl for the USC Trojans and he was the game MVP. He was teammates on a powerful 1990 USC team with Todd Marinovich and Junior Seau. His eight consecutive 100-yard performances were a USC record and this record has since been broken by former Trojans running back Reggie Bush.
