USC vs. UCLA score: Trojan offense waking up, but Bruins still ahead, 24-14

Jeff Gross

The Bruins took an early 17-0 lead, but after the USC offense found its feet they were able to pull within 10.

The UCLA Bruins lead the USC Trojans at halftime, 24-14. The Bruins took advantage of two first-quarter turnovers and went up 17-0 early, but USC's offense appeared to be hitting its stride late in the second quarter.

Matt Barkley's first pass of the game was intercepted by Aaron Hester, and the Bruins quickly went up 7-0. A long Bruin drive netted them a field goal, and the next USC drive that amounted to anything sputtered out when Marquis Lee fumbled the ball. The Bruins were quick to capitalize again and pulled ahead 17-0.

Midway through the second the USC offense began to pick up, starting with a four-play, 75 yard drive that went for a touchdown in just 1:40. The USC defense stopped the next UCLA drive, and the USC offense marched 56 yards down the field in just 2:18 and pulled within 10.

Brett Hundley is 16 of 19 for 141 yards with one touchdown via the pass and one via the run. Johnathan Franklin has 74 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown, Shaquelle Evans has five catches for 54 yards and Joseph Fauria has three for 46 with a touchdown.

Barkley is 9 for 15 for 135 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. Marqise Lee has two catches for 30 yards in addition to the one fumble. Nelson Agholor has been Barkley's favorite target so far, grabbing three balls for 49 yards, including a touchdown.
