It was, by far, the biggest win of Lane Kiffin's coaching career. A statement game. Maybe not so much to the rest of the country, but perhaps, more importantly to the USC community. There had been a growing amount of skepticism whether Kiffin was capable of winning big games and leading this program. Leading them through the hefty NCAA sanctions is one thing. Kiffin's a superb recruiter. He'll get talent, but could he really coach it and run the program? Till Saturday night, he hadn't proven he could. Kiffin, though, outcoached Kelly. And if you needed proof of how sharp the brash young USC coach is as an offensive mind and a play-caller, look at what the Trojans did in their first 21 plays. Twenty of them either went for a touchdown or gained 4 yards or more. The Big Picture: Bruce Feldman- CBSSports.com
