USC football: T.J. McDonald selected Pac-10 defensive player of week
McDonald, a sophomore, had 13 tackles, blocked a punt and deflected another and downed a punt at the four-yard line by diving into the end zone.
McDonald, son of former Trojans All-American safety Tim McDonald, leads the Trojans with 68 tackles and is tied for the team lead with three interceptions.
USC, 6-3 overall and 3-3 in the Pac-10, plays at No. 18 Arizona on Saturday.
I'll have more later at latimes.com/sports.
