Halftime: USC 19, Minnesota 3
By Ted Miller
Other than two-point plays, USC is cruising versus Minnesota. And receiver Robert Woods is soaring.
Woods has caught 11 passes for 115 yards with three touchdowns as the Trojans are dominating the Golden Gophers 19-3 at the break.
While the running game is struggling, quarterback Matt Barkley is 18-of-20 for 163 yards.
The offense did fail on two two-point conversion attempts. When the Trojans converted a successful PAT, it apparently drew cheers from frustrated Trojans fans.
The defense also is playing well, though the Minnesota offense is suspect.
So maybe it's Woods -- instead of Barkley -- who should become a Heisman Trophy candidate?
