Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Not much of a surprise given the lack of major upsets yesterday, but there were no changes in the top nine spots in current Strength of Record. The one change on this list is that Oklahoma State fell off following its loss to Kansas State and was replaced by TCU in the No. 10 spot.

UCLA's 2-point conversion attempt is no good. USC leads 28-23 with under three minutes remaining in the fourth.

For USC, tonight's game really doesn't mean much. It's already in the Pac-12 championship game and is a non-factor in the College Football Playoff. Maybe that explains why it doesn't seem like the Trojans are playing with as much energy as you would expect in a rivalry game.

Sam Darnold was ruled down before fumbling, but that's still a ding against him in the eyes of NFL scouts. His ball security should be the one major concern about his ability to succeed at the next level.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

USC QB Sam Darnold is 3-of-4 for 41 yards and 2 first downs from outside the pocket tonight. Darnold is up to 46 completions outside the pocket this season, most among Power 5 QBs. He also has 29 first downs this season on passes thrown from outside the pocket, most among Power 5 quarterbacks, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

In tonight's NFL showcase event for Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen, the early advantage goes to Rosen (if only by default). The UCLA QB completed 11 of 16 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter, while Darnold completed all three of his pass attempts.
