The Los Angeles area sports royalty took to Youtube to wish USC quarterback Matt Barkley congratulations after his record setting performance against the Colorado Buffalos on Saturday.

Chris Paul, Landon Donovan, Blake Griffin, Matt Leinart and Pete Carroll were among the host of stars that congratulated Barkley on setting the career touchdown record at USC.

Records were set left and right as the Trojans trounced the Buffalos 50-6. The big one was Barkley's 100th career touchdown pass. He is the first quarterback in USC and in Pac-12 history to reach that mark. He also set a new Pac-12 record for completion percentage as he went 19-for-20.

Wide receiver Robert Woods also broke the program's all-time record for receptions and single game record for touchdown receptions with four.

Ex-USC quarterback Carson Palmer came on the video to specifically not congratulate Barkley, but he did wish for him to beat the remaining opponents on the schedule to vie for a national title.
