LOS ANGELES – Perhaps USC athletic director Pat Haden said it best after the Trojans' emotional 38-31 victory over a competitive and aggressive Arizona team on Thursday night.

Standing outside the Los Angeles Coliseum locker room entrance, Haden simply stated: “They have hope now.”

Without the return of “hope,” the Trojans' likelihood of upsetting arch-rival Notre Dame in South Bend on Saturday night would have been harder than former USC head coach Lane Kiffin not calling for a bubble screen or a fade. The Irish could have been primed for one of its most satisfying poundings of this series.
