LA Times Gary Klein on the explosive Oregon Ducks 62-51 victory over USC behind RB Kenjon Barner’s record setting day:
The numbers didn’t lie.
Not before the game and certainly not after.
Second-ranked Oregon rolled into the Coliseum on Saturday with the nation’s highest-scoring offense.
The Ducks rolled out with a 62-51 victory over staggering USC, setting a slew of opponent records in the process.
“They did their thing,” Trojans safety T.J. McDonald said. “We didn’t.”
With running back Kenjon Barner rushing for 321 yards and five touchdowns, Oregon amassed 730 yards en route to a victory that improved the Ducks’ record to 9-0 and kept them in the race for a berth in the Bowl Championship Series title game.
Meanwhile, USC surrendered the most points and yards in its history and fell to 6-3 overall and 4-3 in the Pac-12 Conference.
“They played the way they usually play,” USC linebacker Hayes Pullard said. “Real fast.”
