Oregon remains a step ahead of USC

LOS ANGELES -- The USC Trojans tried to keep up in an offensive showcase with the Oregon Ducks on Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, but it wasn't enough in the end as Oregon came away with a 62-51 victory.

The numbers were as staggering as the final score would indicate, as the two teams combined for 1,345 yards of total offense and only punted twice. The Ducks set USC opponent records for points, total yards (730) and individual rushing yards (321 from Kenjon Barner). The Trojans countered with Matt Barkley throwing for 484 yards and five touchdowns while Nelson Agholor (162 yards) and Marqise Lee (157 yards) provided huge production from the wide receiver spot. Lee also added 251 kickoff return yards, a new Pac-12 record.
