Trojans regain their mojo against Buffs
By Garry Paskwietz
LOS ANGELES -- The USC Trojans came into Saturday's game against Colorado hoping to find some momentum for an offense that had, in a nutshell, been struggling to meet their standard. The Buffaloes ranked among the bottom teams in the conference in every defensive category, so it figured to be the perfect opportunity for the Trojans to regain their offensive mojo.
It didn't take long for their ideal scenario to play out, as the Trojans scored a touchdown on the second play of the game, a 55-yard scoring pass from Matt Barkley to Marqise Lee. After an interception by Drew McAllister, Barkley connected with Robert Woods with a 39-yard touchdown completion. The Trojans forced a Colorado fumble on the first play of the next drive, and Barkley wasted no time before hitting Xavier Grimble with an 8-yard touchdown pass.
Less than six minutes into the game, USC had three touchdowns on the board on its way to an enjoyable 50-6 victory at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
"This was a really good team win today," USC coach Lane Kiffin said. "I'm proud of the guys, because we prepared well this week as if we were playing the best team in the world, and it resulted in a historic day where so many good things happened."
