USC Sophomore wide receiver Robert Woods also made his mark by achieving a new career high of 14 catches for 255 yards. Woods set the tone for the season with 17 catches in the season-opener win over Minnesota. Unfortunately, he was just 5-yards short of All-American wide receiver R. Jay Soward’s 260-yard school record.
This was USC’s weekend for sure, but let’s not forget the Oregon Ducks record night over the Wildcats last week. Running Back LaMicheal James rushed for a school record 288 yards and broke the Oregon mark for career rushing touchdowns with two scores. It’s been an exciting season by far, so should be fun to see what other records will be broken.
Although USC is definitely playing up to par, they will have their work cut out for them after this bye-week. They will take on Cal and Notre Dame on the road, only to comeback home and face Stanford; who is still undefeated after beating UCLA 45-19 this weekend. QB Andrew Luck was 23-27 for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns.
We will see how next weeks match-ups will top the past ones as Oregon takes on Cal, Washington State takes on UCLA, Colorado takes on Stanford, and ASU takes on Utah. As for the Wildcats, their time for redemption is now, so they had better be ready for Oregon State (0-3).
