USC's win over Arizona on Thursday night showed fans a few new fresh faces. One of these breakout players is freshman running back Ty Isaac, who had three carries for 36 yards, including a long 22-yard run.
Following the Trojans' 38-31 win, the first thing Isaac said was "finally," excited he was able to make his mark at the Coliseum.
"It feels good," said Isaac. "Obviously our coaches put us in a good position to win. We've been practicing hard these past few weeks, and I think we felt it coming. The team just really came out and played hard."
Under USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron and offensive coordinator Clay Helton, the Trojans have been opening up the offense more and giving a larger variety of players looks on the field. And Isaac says it was the coaches that motivated the Trojans' to clinch the victory.
"Obviously we've always loved them as coaches and they've taken care of us, and we just kept working for them," said Isaac. "We came out here just to play hard for them."
USC will travel to South Bend on Saturday to take on Notre Dame in the Trojans' first rivalry game of the season. Kick off is at 7:30 P.M. EST.
