USC head coach Lane Kiffin discusses the Trojans "hard fought" 17-14 win over the Aggies...

The Trojans pulled out a 17-14 win over the Utah State Aggies on Saturday in the Coliseum. While it wasn't the prettiest of match ups, USC head coach Lane Kiffin says it was a "hard fought game."

"We knew it was a really good team we were playing," said Kiffin. "We had a physical week. We were extremely banged up going into the game. Obviously we wanted to finish better in the second half. I felt like there was a rhythm early on. I think what it came down to is we were able to run the ball well in the first half."

The Trojans will try to improve their offense--specifically their passing game next week as they take on the Arizona State Sun Devils.
