Coaching winners and losers from Week 7

Georgia chose to hire an unproven head coach, former Alabama assistant Kirby Smart, and Saturday's home loss to Vanderbilt raises questions about whether it was the right move.

Darnold, Smith-Schuster power USC past Arizona (0:41)

How bad is Arizona's quarterback situation? How about this: reserve tight end Matt Morin has entered the game in relief of Khalil Tate.

USC receiver Juju Smith-Schuster left late in the third quarter against Arizona due to an apparent injury to his back. He was down for several minutes and walked gingerly to the locker room.

USC junior WR JuJu Smith-Schuster had two first-half touchdown receptions, which gives him his third multi-touchdown game of the season and sixth of his career.

Arizona freshman QB Khalil Tate struggled mightily in the first half against USC. He had more turnovers (one INT, one fumble) than completed passes (1) and the Wildcats converted just once on five third-down attempts.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

The 34 points USC scored in the first half against Arizona (34-7) are the most it has scored in a half this year and fourth time it has scored five touchdowns in a half in a conference game since the start of the 2013 season.

USC quarterback Sam Darnold has been a magician on third down. The Trojans are 5 of 6 on third down and had a few big conversion on their last drive, which ended in a touchdown pass to Deontay Burnett to put USC up 14-7.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona looks completely overmatched up front against USC. The Trojans easily marched down the field on 10-play, 67-yard touchdown drive using a good mix of the run (39 yards) and pass (28 yards). Sophomore RB Ronald Jones had 30 yards on the drive, which is more than he had in three other full games this season.

Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins is not in uniform, according to several reports from Tucson. With Dawkins unavailable, freshman Khalil Tate is expected to start for the Wildcats. He began the year No. 3 on the depth chart.
