Now that’s a well known axiom in the world of football.  Stop the run and you make the offense one dimensional.  Make the offense one dimensional and watch the defensive linemen pin their ears back and attack the quaterback.   A rushed quaterback is frustrated and a sacked quaterback leads to a happy dance. 

That happy dance was seldom seen from USC in 2018 as the defense took a step backward from 2017 and it all started up front.
