1) Lane Kiffin can make adjustments. Many Trojan fans weren’t sure he could (or would), but he can. And he did.  Last week, the combo of Kessler and Wittek managed just 54 yards on 21 attempts. This week, Kessler put up 237 yards and two touchdowns while the offense as a whole more than doubled their output from 193 against WSU to 521 versus Boston College. The Trojan offense made a huge turn around this week and much of it was down to the changes Kiffin made in the passing game. Kessler consistently got out of the pocket on roll outs which negated the offensive line’s struggles in pass protection and highlighted the quarterback’s ability to throw on the run. At the same time, consistent use of play-action took advantage of the strong Trojan run game.
