USC Practice Report: Trojans must step up defense against Arizona

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The USC Trojans have to step up their defense against the Arizona Wildcats.

The USC Trojans have a big matchup coming up against the Oregon Ducks, in what to figures be a Pac-12 Championship preview. But before the Trojans get ready for their epic tilt with Oregon, they have to try and hold off the Arizona Wildcats. Jordan Moore of the USC Trojans blog files this report.

Arizona has one of the best offenses in the country, currently ranked 5th overall. Matt Scott is putting up incredible passing numbers while also placing second overall among rushing quarterbacks. USC head coach Lane Kiffin is also very concerned about the offense and how Arizona has managed to light everyone up on their schedule. Kiffin is looking for his defense to step up and give a signature performance. Kiffin is also worried about the particular defensive packages the Wildcats run. USC definitely has to avoid the trap game in Tucson.

Kiffin also isn't sure who will start at left tackle with Aundrey Walker getting injured last week, listing either Walker or Max Tuerk as the starter.
