Davis Ready For His Turn

by Greg Katz

LOS ANGELES – If I was the Wisconsin Badgers highly touted defense, I’d have a wary eye on any USC Trojans tailback whose last name is Davis. After all, the Trojans have already had two All-American tailbacks by that last name, or maybe you haven’t heard of Clarence and Anthony Davis?

For the record, neither Clarence nor Anthony Davis will be playing for the Trojans against Wisconsin during Wednesdaynight’s National Funding Holiday Bowl, but USC’s junior tailback Justin Davis will and the way he attacks the line of scrimmage with his one-cut and up-field style should present plenty of challenges for the Badgers.

Starting the last seven games for the Trojans, Davis has run for 875 yards (5.6 avg.), five touchdowns, and has caught 18 passes for 189 yards (10.5 avg.). The 2015 All-Pac-12 honorable mention ball carrier can definitely move the chains.
