USC Vs. California 2012 Highlights Video: Matt Barkley, Trojans Rebound

Matt Barkley, Silas Redd, and the USC Trojans managed a nice bounceback performance in a 27-9 victory over the California Golden Bears.


The USC Trojans had a decent but hardly spotless 27-9 victory over the California Golden Bears to get back on track. The video highlights show a little bit of the bad mixed in with the good.

USC seemed to be marching to an easy early touchdown when Matt Barkley threw an ill-fated pass that was intercepted by Cal's Steve Williams in the end zone. Barkley did recover by throwing two touchdowns in the red zone (including a dart to Marqise Lee), but he also threw another interception and managed only 192 passing yards on the day. It was an effective if hardly exciting performance from Barkley.

The run attack had no such trouble getting going. Silas Redd piled up 158 yards on 21 carries and the nice long touchdown run you see above. Curtis McNeal added 115 yards on ten carries. The Trojan run attack had their way offensively, and it carried USC to a routine win.
