USC vs. Arizona score update: Trojans lead 28-26 in fourth

The USC Trojans have a 28-26 over the Arizona Wildcats heading into the fourth quarter in Tuscon. The Trojans have come back to take the lead, and pushed it to 15 at the start of the third, but have allowed the Wildcats to chip away.

Marqise Lee has been spectacular, having already set the USC and Pac-12 records for receiving yards in a game. The question remains whether the star wideout can top the FBS record of 405. Lee currently has 313 yards receiving.

Lee added to his total with a 44-yard touchdown catch from Matt Barkley early in the third quarter. That capped an 87-yard drive to put USC up two scores and in control.

Arizona battled back, and eventually broke through for their first points of the second half on a 10-yard rushing touchdown to pull the Wildcats with eight points. The play was setup by a 42-yard pass from Scott to Austin Hill.

The Wildcats recovered a fumble by USC's D.J. Morgan on the ensuing drive. It was USC's fourth turnover of the game. Morgan suffered an injury to his leg on the play.

Scott hit Dan Buckner on a 9-yard touchdown following the fumble to put Arizona within two points with 1:42 to play in the third. The Wildcats attempted to tie the game, but failed on a two-point coversion try.

The Trojans failed on a 4th and 2 reverse play to Lee to begin the fourth, and turned the ball over on downs.
