USC defensive lineman J.R. Tavai discusses filling in for Morgan Breslin and the change to a starting position...

It's been a few weeks since USC defensive lineman J.R. Tavai steppd in to fill Morgan Breslin's starting spot, and now that he is out indefinitely, Tavai has found his rhythm.

"Its' great, it's unfortunate for Morgan, but the opportunity has shown up for me, so I'm just rolling with it," said Tavai.

Now that he got his feet wet, Tavai is starting to make an impact for the Trojans, even leading USC in solo tackles agains the Golden Bears.

Tavai says he will continue to push himself at practice, especially as the Trojans have a very difficult road ahead of them with No. 4 Stanford on Saturday.
