But Barkley established that he will be the man next week at Ohio State, whatever Corp does in the fourth quarter.
After a shaky first quarter -- which could describe the entire USC effort -- Barkley found his range and rhythm and was smart and efficient and flashed the potential that the Trojans coaches have been raving about.
Barkley finished 15 of 19 for 233 yards passing with a touchdown and no interceptions.
He also had a long passed dropped by tight end Anthony McCoy. He didn't throw a bad ball all afternoon.
