Recap


No. 2 Oregon 62, No. 17 Southern California 51: Kenjon Barner set a school record with 321 rushing yards and scored five touchdowns and Marcus Mariota added 400 total yards and four touchdown passes to lead a record-setting romp for the visiting Ducks. 

The teams combined for a whopping 1,345 total yards and Oregon (9-0, 6-0 Pac-12) rolled up 730 - the most by a USC opponent, surpassing Notre Dame's 623 in 1946. The 62 points are also the most USC has allowed.

Barner's rushing total also marks the most allowed by USC - as do his five touchdowns - and broke LaMichael James' school mark of 288 yards set last season against Arizona. Mariota was 20-of-33 for 304 yards and added 96 rushing yards on 15 carries; his four touchdown passes tied the most allowed by the Trojans. Josh Huff, who had six catches for 124 yards, hauled in scoring passes of 21 and 36 yards.

USC's Matt Barkley was 35-of-54 for 484 yards - the school-record fourth 400-yard passing game of his career - with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Barkley surpassed Carson Palmer (927) for the most completions in USC history and moved past Arizona's Nick Foles (930) for the Pac-12 record.

Silas Redd rushed for 92 yards and scored a pair of second-half touchdowns that pulled USC (6-3, 4-3) within three points - the first team all season to get that close to the Ducks in the second half. Marqise Lee had 12 catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns for the Trojans for his third consecutive 100-yard game.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Neither team punted until USC was forced to do on its first possession of the fourth quarter. … Barner became the 15th Oregon player to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and the third Duck with 5,000 all-purpose yards in his career. … Oregon has scored 40 or more points in 12 consecutive games, tying the BCS-era record held by Texas.
