Lane Kiffin media call 

October, 23, 2011
Lane Kiffin held his weekly media call on Sunday night. Here were some of the excerpts from the USC head coach:

* "We won the game because we did a lot of things right. We ran the ball, 44 rushes for 219 yards and only three negative rushing yards. I think one of those negative yards was on a kneel-down. That’s pretty good to have that few negative yards with that many rush attempts. That time of possession stat was pretty good, especially in the fourth quarter when we had the ball for 12 minutes. To only have a couple penalties in that environment was huge. We also only gave up three points in two ND trips to the red zone."

* "Matt Barkley played a really clean game at quarterback. You don’t need gigantic stat games if we play defense like we have the past two weeks. I thought his two biggest plays were the two scrambles. We missed a guy on both plays so he had to make someone miss and ended up with two huge conversions."
