Storylines from Tuesday practice 

October, 4, 2011
The Trojans went through a full pads session Tuesday morning amid some mild rain. The team did a lot of red zone work, both in 7-on-7 and team drills, in an effort to shore up that area of the defense. Coach Lane Kiffin said they focused on position groups and fundamentals today, as well.

"It's nice to slow down and do stuff to get better, rather than worrying about preparing for an opponent," Kiffin said.

Among the players who looked good today with increased reps were Max Wittek, Xavier Grimble, Dillon Baxter and George Farmer.
