USC vs. UCLA update: Bruins scoring, Matt Barkley rattled, sword guy mad

FOX

Hey, maybe that spurned swordsman thing worked! Just gonna do Monopoly analogies for this whole game.

Matt Barkley is among the national leaders in interceptions after entering the year as the presumed Heisman Trophy favorite, No. 1 draft pick and leader of the best offense and team in the country. Things haven't panned out. Six seconds into USC-UCLA, he threw an interception to Aaron Hester, giving him 14 on the year.

The pick quickly turned into a Brett Hundley touchdown run, and the fired-up Bruins bought Baltic Avenue. Monopoly, you see. The Trojans made a little noise on their second drive, but the Bruins pass rush forced a punt, and UCLA added Vermont Avenue. Nobody ever won with Baltic and Vermont, but it's way better than nothing.

Backed up against their own end zone, the Bruins then put together an ongoing, 10-play drive across midfield. Hundley is six-of-six for 39 yards plus 19 on the ground, while Barkley is zero-of-three.
