Lane Kiffin elaborated today on USC’s second-to-last play. The deep pass to Marqise Lee that took way too much time off the clock.
“Unfortunately we kind of went for a knockout shot down there,” Kiffin said. “When you do that it takes a long time. We kind of went for it there. We tried to end the game there.”
Why wouldn’t you spike the ball and take the short shot and kick a field with Arizona quarterback Matt Scott out of the game for a potential overtime?
