Here’s the USC-Virginia grades.
RESULT: No. 3 USC 52, Virginia 7
WEEK 1 GPA: B+
Need game where team actually rushes quarterback to judge Mark Sanchez properly.
C.J. Gable’s hot start deserved more than nine carries.
Ronald Johnson’s toe inside sideline catch more impressive than deep touchdown reception.
The Trojans’ Achilles’ heel answered every question posed in Virginia.
Clay Matthews deserves more playing time after six tackles, two recovered fumbles.
Rey Maualuga did not throw up from watching Virginia’s offense.
It’s a rare sight when two USC players are fighting for an interception.
Joe McKnight fumbled a punt return? Really?
Just another garden variety cross-country season-opening blowout.
