Kiffin explains how they spent the rain delay

With the second half of the USC and Syracuse game delayed, and the game stuck at 14-3 in favor of USC, each staff found themselves with some extra time on their hands to prepare for another half of football on Saturday.

Lane Kiffin explained how his staff and the players used the rain delay to their advantage in the clip.

"We didn't tell our players that this was going to happen, but we knew that it was probably going to get shut down in the third or fourth quarter," Kiffin explained.

"We were going to come in and get the pads off, we were going to go to dry shirts because of the temperature difference, and really let our guys sit around and really coach our guys schematically and not with a lot of energy."
