The USC Trojans defense has not bee horrible all season long under defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, who is the father of head coach Lane Kiffin. They 49th in the nation in points allowed, which is certainly nothing to boast about. But it is not how the Trojans’ defense has played throughout the season that has people talking in Southern California. It is the last two games that have resulted in USC losses to the Arizona Wildcats and Oregon Ducks.
For those keeping track, the Trojans have allowed a total of 101 points in those two losses, including 62 to the Ducks last Saturday night.
That is guaranteed to get people talking.
