USC is hanging in there with Oregon, engineering solid drives and making plays with the ball, but if the Trojans want any shot at winning against the Ducks, they're going to have to find some way to stop Kenjon Barner.
The senior running back has 214 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries with 5:14 left in the third quarter, pacing the Ducks' unstoppable scoring attack.
Barner runs with purpose, hitting the hole without fear and making strong cuts. What De'Anthony Thomas brings in home run ability, Barner brings with a calm and quiet resolve. Oregon is dangerous enough, but Barner adds an extra element -- he can pick up yards in bunches or be called on when the Ducks just need one. That's an impressive weapon to have.
