"Part of his recent success has to do with the play making ability from his wide receivers, particularly Jordan Payton and Thomas Duarte. Payton has a career-high 71 receptions, with 1,009 yards, and four touchdowns on the year. The 6'1 212lb senior receiver is a team leader that is capable of taking advantage of defenders in man coverage. When Payton isn't making big plays you can count on fellow receiver Thomas Duarte to step in.
Duarte, who is arguably UCLA's best receiver, comes into this contest hauling in 46 receptions, 757 yards, and nine touchdowns. Duarte is a big body receiver who specializes in using his size to his advantage. Duarte possesses great body control and runs crisp routes to cause separation versus defenders. The Trojans secondary will have to game plan and match up well against these receivers including Paul Perkins out of the backfield. The Trojans played no pass defense whatsoever last weekend, giving up 407 passing yards to Vernon Adams and the Ducks."
