Leading up to Saturday's game against Utah, there was a lot of talk about the battle up in the box between former USC offensive coordinator Norm Chow and USC defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

The ballyhooed matchup ended in a draw. However, during the game it looked like the main battle wasn't going on up in the coaches box, but down in the trenches between former Trojans offensive line coach Tim Davis and USC defensive line coach Ed Orgeron. Having coached together at USC for a few years, Orgeron and Davis know each other's coaching styles well.
