1) USC Defense > Chuckie Keeton
Much was made about the danger of Chuckie Keeton coming into this past weekend. The Trojan defense clearly heard that talk and made it their mission to prove themselves against one of the better quarterbacks they’ll face all season. They succeeded in resounding fashion. Keeton may have thrown two touchdowns, but he was harassed relentlessly throughout and never found his comfort zone. He was sacked four times, though that number doesn’t account for the number of hits USC’s defenders laid on him.
