Here are the grades for the Oregon State game.
RESULT: Oregon State 36, USC 7
RECORD: 7-4, 4-4
WEEK 11 GRADE: D+
Matt Barkley’s injury did not excuse an awful first-half performance and some really bad decisions.
Only C.J. Gable ran with any sense of purpose while Marc Tyler and Allen Bradford battled injuries.
With Robert Woods ailing, no receiver caught more than three passes.
Other than assorted penalties and sacks, the line did a pretty good job.
Jurrell Casey, DaJohn Harris and Armond Armstead each made eight tackles.
Devon Kennard filled in gamely for Chris Galippo but deserves to go to back to the defensive lineh.
Ironically, the secondary’s best effort (154 yards passing) came in the Trojans’ worst game of the season.
Oregon State successfully faked punt. Just like Virginia.
Lane Kiffin reassured no one that he was a better choice than Mike Riley. P.S. Here come the archrivals!
