USC's offense went flat in the second half, but this time the defense came through -- reversing the script of 2010.

The Trojans were shut out in the second half but held on to defeat Minnesota 19-17 when Torin Harris intercepted a pass near midfield with 53 seconds to play.

Last year, it was the defense that seemed to fold in the fourth quarter.

Still, a two-point victory that includes no second-half points isn't much of a start for Matt Barkley-Lane Kiffin 2.0.
