Best is yet to come according to Davis

USC has shown a commitment to its run game this season and freshman Justin Davis is proving to be a big reason why.

Davis, who USC head coach Lane Kiffin called one of the most talented early enrollees he's ever seen at USC, rushed for his second career touchdown in the Trojans 35-7 win over Boston College on Saturday.

"We're really trying to make a lot of people respect the running game, bringing back that USC-Running Back U," Davis explained after the game. "It's definitely working for us."

Davis rushed for 96 yards on 10 carries against the Eagles. If it weren't for one of his carries being called back due to a penalty, the freshman would have earned his first 100-yard rushing game.

As it was, his long was a 39-yard run. His touchdown, a 17-yard carry as he dodged a couple of Boston College defenders.

Despite the impressive numbers early in his career, Davis' mindset is to continue to grow as a tailback. "I'm planning on improving every game" he said. "I'm going to try to top every performance and the weeks after."

Davis averaged 9.6 yards per carry versus the Eagles.

Four different tailbacks saw action Saturday including Davis, Tre Madden, Buck Allen and Ty Isaac.

Each back averaged over five and a half yards per carry.
