Oregon State, the team that ended Washington State's 16-game Pac-10 losing streak last weekend, is dominating USC 20-0 at halftime.
Barkley wasn't sharp before he got hurt. Oregon State got a pick-6 -- 65 yards from Jordan Poyer -- and the Trojans looked sloppy and uninspired while the Beavers looked motivated to put last weekend's embarrassment behind them.
The key: Beavers running back Jacquizz Rodgers getting in rhythm in both the running -- 12 carries, 68 yards, TD -- and passing games (five receptions, 48 yards).
The Beavers need this win to have a fighting shot for bowl eligibility.
USC? It suddenly looks flat and unmotivated.
