LOS ANGELES -- Nelson Agholor caught seven passes for 161 yards, Javorius Allen rushed for two touchdowns and Southern California got off to an impressive start under interim coach Ed Orgeron with a 38-31 victory over Arizona on Thursday night.
Cody Kessler passed for 297 yards and two TDs as the revitalized Trojans (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) survived Arizona's second-half rally to win for Orgeron, the longtime defensive line coach who replaced the fired Lane Kiffin on Sept. 29.
Agholor caught a 62-yard touchdown pass and Tre Madden had a 63-yard TD catch in the first quarter for the Trojans, who had the Coliseum rocking as they roared to a 25-point lead in the first half.
B.J. Denker passed for 363 yards and four touchdowns for the Wildcats (3-2, 0-2) in their second straight loss.
