Tuesday practice report 

October, 23, 2012
LOS ANGELES -- The Trojans were back on Brian Kennedy/Howard Jones Field on Tuesday morning, going full-pads once again in preparation for this Saturday’s clash at Arizona. And while USC is coming off arguably their most complete performance of the season -- a 50-6 victory over Colorado -- Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin is well aware that the team has a tough stretch coming up, starting this weekend with the Wildcats and their potent spread-option offensive attack.

“I think we have a lot of concerns,” Kiffin said. “We’re always trying to improve regardless of who we’re playing, just like last week. And obviously we need to fix penalties, we need to do better on third downs and now we’re going to have to step it up even more on defense. We’re going to play some great offenses, including this one -- the No. 5 offense in the country at their place -- so we’re going to have our hands full.”
