The USC Trojans dismantled the Colorado Buffaloes yesterday 50-6 at the LA Coliseum, which isn’t really much of a surprise considering the offensive weapons USC has and how bad Colorado’s defense is. But in the process a couple of Trojans rewrote school and conference record books.
Quarterback Matt Barkley broke the USC and Pac-12 career touchdown pass record previously held by Matt Leinart. He also set new single-game conference records for completion percentage by going 19/20 (95%) and passer efficiency rating (319.16). Barkley’s six scoring passes on the day tied his own USC record. Wide receiver Robert Woods set a new Trojans single-game mark for touchdown receptions (4) and passed Dwayne Jarrett to become the school’s all-time leader in career receptions.
When you play for a school with a football history like USC has, and are in the Los Angeles area, you’re congratulated by a star-studded cast when significant records are broken.
