Kirby Lee/USA TODAY SportsUSC's offense exploded in the first game under interim coach Ed Orgeron, with Tre Madden's 63-yard touchdown reception from Cody Kessler highlighting a 546-yard night.LOS ANGELES -- So now that we know the new, fun-loving Ed Orgeron-led USC Trojans are more relaxed and creative on offense, while still trying to patch up a secondary that seems to be growing more leaky by the minute, the next question is obvious:
Exactly how many more games can USC win this season?
The team that built up a three-touchdown lead in the cool October night and then had to hang on through a nerve-jangling fourth quarter to beat Arizona 38-31 still seems to be a work in progress.
