The whispers started with USC’s loss to Stanford in mid-September. They grew louder after the shocking upset loss at Arizona in late October. When USC Athletic Director Pat Haden indicated before the Notre Dame game that Kiffin would be retained for next season, no matter the result of the looming matchup versus the Fighting Irish, […]
The redshirt freshman quarterback completed 14 of 23 passes for 186 yards.
