Make that nine in a row. USC beat Cal for the ninth consecutive year with a 27-9 victory.

Khaled Holmes is making a statement for being the offensive MVP because Matt Barkley was protected very well yesterday afternoon. To say it was a rough last week for Barkley and the offense without Holmes would be an understatement. Khaled Holmes is central to the offense’s success.

It was a quiet game for the receivers, but what was a quiet game for the receivers was a very noisy game for Silas Redd and Curtis McNeal, collectively putting up 273 yards on the ground.
Enjoy the highlights.
