LOS ANGELES (AP) Until Southern California's young offense can put together an entire game with as many brilliant plays as it crammed into the second quarter against Colorado, the Trojans' defense will attempt to carry them toward the Pac-12 title.
The defense came through with an awfully impressive lift Saturday night.
Michael Pittman Jr. caught two of J.T. Daniels' three touchdown passes, and USC's defense dominated the first three quarters of a 31-20 victory over previously unbeaten No. 19 Colorado.
