It only took a quarter for senior quarterback Matt Barkley to tie Matt Leinart’s Trojan record of 99 career touchdown passes.
The first touchdown came off a pass to Marqise Lee in the first pass play of the game.
Matt Barkley now holds the USC record for career touchdowns with a touchdown pass to Robert Woods after the second quarter.
The combination of Matt Barkley and Robert Woods did a number on the Colorado defense. With 10 minutes left in the game, backup quarterback Max Wittek was already warming up on the sidelines.
Barkley had no business playing in the fourth with the game seemingly over. Max Wittek did a great job filling in for the senior quarterback, throwing for a touchdown of his own in the process.
Aside from one bad pass, there is nothing bad you can say about Barkley. This performance may have very well inserted him back in the Heisman race.
