USC coach Ed Orgeron said things might be simplified for the offensive line after yesterday’s struggles and the fact it is going into a hostile environment at Oregon State on Friday. Orgeron said there were too many missed assignments against Utah.
The Trojans were 3 for 15 on third down and are ranked 116th in the nation with a 28-percent success rate. Orgeron said Utah blitzes and poor decisions by QB Cody Kessler were the reasons for Saturday’s issues.
“The quarterback must make better decisions,” Orgeron said.
Orgeron noted USC’s had 106 rushing attempts the past three games without a fumble.
