The Ed Orgeron era got off to a winning start at USC, as the Trojans (4-2, 1-2) earned their first Pac-12 victory with a 38-31 decision over Arizona (3-2, 0-2).
USC led 28-10 at halftime, getting a pair of long touchdown passes from Cody Kessler, only to see Arizona mount a furious comeback thanks to a career-high 363 passing yards and four TDs from B.J. Denker.
The Trojans played without All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee and saw tight end Xavier Grimble and tailback Tre Madden go down with injuries but still managed to gain 547 yards, including 250 on the ground.
