The USC Trojans have struggled this season, but especially against Pac-12 opponents. Troy has given up 225 points to Pac-12 foe's this season, with 62 to the Bruins alone.
Defensive coordinator Todd Orlando spoke with the media after Wednesday practice, on his unit's struggles.
"It’s just a handful of critical mistakes," Orlando said.
“When you go against somebody that’s good or you know you get into some of these teams that have unique guys, draft-able guys - if you’re bad with your eyes, bad with your feet, just these little small critical moments or the seconds before you miss a play [contribute to missed opportunities].”
The Men of Troy have a big challenge ahead of them on Saturday, Nov. 27, as they take on No. 13 ranked BYU. The Cougars have scored 125 points in their last three games and hold an overall record of [9-2].
