USC ranked 122nd nationally in rushing yards per carry allowed (6.69 yards).
Now, some of you will immediately point to one Bryce Love run and a fake reverse by UNLV for inflating the stat. But then that leads to a discussion on explosive plays allowed.
Besides, USC radio announcer Pete Arbogast (and others) said before the season this would be the best defense since 2008. I think we can already bury that theory.
