The USC Trojans won their eighth game of the season on Saturday afternoon, and did so in a different fashion than they had all year in their 40-17 win over the Washington Huskies. The defense was stellar with a season-high seven sacks and the Trojans ran for a season-high 252 yards, allowing quarterback Matt Barkley and wide receiver Robert Woods to take a back seat.
Barkley completed 18 of 28 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown, a pedestrian game for him, but it gave him 29 touchdowns on the season, tied for fifth-most in school history for a single season.

Woods, who caught no passes in last year's loss to Washington, caught just two passes for five yards on Saturday, only the second time in 10 games he has been held to under eight catches. Still, he moved into third place for receptions in a season by a Trojan.
