USC 40, UCLA 21: Wide receiver Jordan Payton

UCLA receiver Jordan Payton talked about his team’s 40-21 loss to USC on Saturday, one in which the Bruin offense sputtered numerous times.

Asked if this loss stings more than the others in his career, the senior said: “I think it’s supposed to. I think to the outside world — it’s supposed to be the only game anybody knows about is this one.

“A loss is a loss. To be honest, they all hurt. I guess this one hurts more because I know all the guys over there. It does suck to lose in the Coliseum.”
