Hawaii at No. 1 USC: Live Score, Analysis and Results

Rick McMahan@@RickMcMahanSenior Writer ISeptember 1, 2012

USC wins 49-10.

For the Trojans there is a lot to be taken from this game.

While the defense played well in the first half, they gave up quite a few yards to a Hawaii offense that is trying to find its way under first year coach Norm Chow.

However, there were some revelations as defensive end Morgan Breslin dominated throughout the game and will be a welcome addition to the depleted defensive line.

On offense, Matt Barkley had a nice game but had some errant throws and some drops as well.

USC will need to work on their running game which largely disappointed.

Lane Kiffin and his staff will have a lot to work on before the Trojans head east to play a Syracuse team that almost beat Northwestern at home today.

At the end of the day, this was a nice win but the Trojans will have to play much better as the season progresses if they want to play in the national championship game in January.
