Here’s the grades on the victory over UCLA.
RESULT: No. 5 USC 28, UCLA 7
RECORD: 11-1, 8-1
WEEK 12 GPA: B-
Mark Sanchez survived a physical game but UCLA dropped some interceptions.
Joe McKnight didn’t fumble which in itself is a minor victory.
Damian Williams’ injury forced the Trojans to look at other receivers.
Did not allow a sack and avoided 2006 meltdown against UCLA.
Another game against an offense incapable of testing it.
Practices are tougher than anything seen at the Rose Bowl.
Barely avoided embarrassment of not picking off a Kevin Craft pass.
Imagine if USC needed a field goal to win the game?
No style points here for lackluster offense or beating Rick Neuheisel.
