RESULT: USC 38, Arizona 31
RECORD: 4-2, 1-2
TEAM GPA: 3.0
Cody Kessler did not turn ball over and even looked faster on 34-yard run without Lane Kiffin.
Silas Redd a mini-game MVP with his running on last series to put game away.
Tight ends did a nice job but overall a few too many dropped passes.
Did not do a great job protecting Kessler and were one of Lane Kiffin’s undoings.
Leonard Williams and J.R. Tavai combined for 22 tackles.
Too many holes in defense right behind the line, exposed by quality offense.
Hayes Pullard made 10 tackles but overall position often plays quiet.
Late meltdown almost sent game to overtime. Need to get that fixed by Notre Dame.
Even Andre Heidari played better without Lane Kiffin.
Amazing what happens when players believe in their head coach and playcalling includes all players and no bubble screens.
