"I didn't like the fumble. I didn't like the penalties a lot. I didn't like some of the celebrations of guys acting like they haven't done it before. Those things will be harped on and corrected because we have to play team football. Nothing here is individual," said interim head coach Donte Williams after the Colorado win.
"This is USC. This is not me or I. This is us and we."
