Cal's improved defense gets tough test vs. No. 5 USC

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) Three games into Justin Wilcox's tenure as coach at California, the once-maligned defense has turned from a major liability into the strength of the team for the Golden Bears.

Cal is allowing 20 fewer points a game this season and has held its last two opponents scoreless in the second half. But shutting down Weber State and Mississippi isn't the same as doing it against quarterback Sam Darnold and fifth-ranked Southern California (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12).

"We always set pretty high standards in our own building so we feel like we can play a lot better, and we're going to need to play a lot better to continue to have success," Wilcox said. "So that's really what we're focused on and not necessarily opinions of others."
