Matt Barkley Named Pac-12 Offensive Player Of The Week For Fourth Time This Season

USC Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley ended his junior season in style on Saturday night, tossing six touchdowns and throwing for 423 yards in the Trojans' 50-0 victory over the UCLA Bruins. As a result, Barkley was named on Monday the Pac-12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week. It is the fourth time Barkley has won the award this season.

Barkley tied his own school record for touchdown passes in a game, set earlier this season against Colorado. He broke Matt Leinart's school and Pac-12 record for touchdown passes in a season with 39, and his 69.1% completion percentage set a new USC record, surpassing Rob Johnson's 68.6% mark in 1993.
