Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona Wildcats beat Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans 39 – 36 today.
The Wildcats were able to overcome a 28 – 13 lead that USC had just after halftime. They were also able to keep up with USC receiver Marquis Lee, who had a spectacular game and accounted for 55% of the Trojans total 618 yards. Zona was led by quarterback Matt Scott, who was 27 – 50 for 369 yards and 3 touchdowns. Scott also rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown.
Arizona has upset two of the five ranked teams they’ve faced this season (18 Oregon State, 9 USC). It’s safe to say that given a few more years, they’ll be a contender in the Pac 12 South.
