Trojans safeties set career highs with legend Troy Polamalu in attendance

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

Legendary USC safety Troy Polamalu met with the Trojans before the game Saturday and helped lead a pregame routine he borrowed from his storied career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fittingly, current star safety Talanoa Hufanga then promptly went out and racked up a career-high 18 tackles -- the most by a Trojan since, yep, Polamalu had 20 against Utah in the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl. Fellow safety Isaiah Pola-Mao, who is Polamalu's nephew, also set a career-high with 12 tackles in the 52-35 win over UCLA.
