Oregon vs. USC score update: Halftime is for catching your breath

Steve Dykes

Oregon leads USC, 34-24, at the break. This is a football game.

You see a 34-24 score at the half in November and you might think it's basketball. It's not. Oregon and USC combined to put up 58 points in the first two quarters in a game that has been as good as advertised. And Virginia basketball coach Tony Bennett is probably looking away in shame.

With the Trojans on their heels after falling behind 21-3, Matt Barkley has done his best to get his team (and the home crowd) back in it, but the Ducks are using their unfeeling, emotionless Empire march down the field to pummel the Trojans into submission.

Or is that Jedi? I'm confused.

If you're a doubter, just take a look at this play, with Barkley finding freshman Nelson Agholor for a 76-yard strike.

Yup. It's been that kind of game.
