Southern Cal had a bittersweet outcome Saturday night, defeating Arizona 41-34, but losing star wide receiver Drake London to a fractured right ankle. On Sunday, Trojans interim head coach Donte Williams confirmed that the injury would end London’s season.

London, a 6-foot-5 junior, entered the weekend ranked second nationally in receptions and receiving yards per game.

The No. 4 NFL Draft prospect, according to the latest Big Board from ESPN, entered the game with 79 receptions for 1,003 yards in seven games. He had nine catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in the first half against Arizona.

London was injured while catching a 6-yard touchdown pass with 4:16 left in the second quarter for a 28-7 lead. Wildcats defensive back Christian Roland-Wallace fell on London’s right ankle while making the tackle in the end zone.

Medical personnel attended to London and put an air cast on his right leg before he was taken off the field on a cart.
