I'm not going to bore you with defense of B.J. Denker, mostly because I've been on his bandwagon since the NAU game.  People out there are going to hate, but don't expect to hear a lot of it until the next time Denker looks a little frazzled.

Still super confused why Daniel Jenkins isn't out there more though.  1 carry for 11 yards tonight....really?  He's better than a good chunk of the receiving corps.  Why not have your best weapons out on the field at all times.

Anyways, here's a look at some stats from the USC game.

QB Comparison

Comp-Att Yards YPA TD INT
B.J. Denker 28-44 363 8.3 4 0
Cody Kessler 15-30 297 9.9 2 0

Rushing Comparison

USC: 249 yards on 45 attempts

Arizona: 145 yards on 33 attempts

Attempts Yards YPC TD
Ka'Deem Carey 21 138 6.6 0
Silas Redd 19 80 4.2 0

Arizona Receivers

Rec Yds Avg TD
Terrence Miller 6 76 12.7 0
Garic Wharton 2 73 36.5 2
Nate Phillips 2 71 35.5 1
Johnny Jackson 3 53 17.7 0
Ka'Deem Carey 6 36 6.0 0
Samajie Grant 6 33 5.5 0
David Richards 3 21 7.0 1

Some pretty good looking offensive stats, right?  Too bad the defense reverted to its 2012 self, and the special teams, were once again, quite special.
