Senior running back sets Oregon single-game rushing mark as Ducks put up most yards ever as a USC opponent.
Oregon's offense is impressive enough as is, so to see what Kenjon Barner has been able to do in a Saturday night game against nationally-ranked USC is even more incredible.
With a 5-yard touchdown run, his fourth of the day, the senior running back tied LaMichael James for Oregon's single-game rushing record. He has 288 yards on right around 9 yards a carry, and has also set the mark for most rushing yards against USC previously held by Curtis Enis.
James set the original Oregon mark of 288 yards against Arizona on Sept. 24, 2011, according to Rob Moseley of The Register-Guard.
Barner's four rushing touchdowns also ties a record for a Trojans opponent. The Ducks as a team have broken the record for most yards by a USC opponent.
So Oregon has broken USC opponent record for rushing yards (Barner) and overall yards (620+). We have 12 minutes left.— Pete Thamel(@SIPeteThamel) November 4, 2012
There isn't much else to say about the performance by Barner, but we'll let Andy McNamara try:
