Matt Barkley didn't back away from assertions by his USC Trojans teammates that Notre Dame quit in the final minutes of their game Saturday in South Bend, Ind.

"I would agree with that," Barkley said Monday in an interview with Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley on 710 ESPN. "I was shocked that they didn't use the timeouts because we got on the field with … about seven minutes left, and I thought they were planning on stopping us and saving their timeouts for the end when they had the ball. …

"It seemed from our sideline and our perspective that they did give up. It seemed uncharacteristic of Notre Dame. I wouldn't have wanted to have been on that sideline."
