Here are the grades for Saturday’s game in New Jersey.
RESULT: No. 2 USC 42, SYRACUSE 29
WEEK 2 GPA: C+
If there is a quiet six-touchdown game, Matt Barkley had one.
Silas Redd lives up to hype while Curtis McNeal rebounded from Game 1.
Robert Woods and Marqise Lee caught with 21 of Barkley’s 23 completions.
Inconsistent at best and now the center position is depleted by injury.
Morgan Breslin already best defensive lineman after only two games.
Deon Bailey’s two interceptions already matches last season’s total.
Why didn’t USC make sure Isiah Wiley was eligible this season?
Kicker Alex Wood does job; Punt team gets another delay of game.
Sometimes the game plan looks like USC is playing not to lose.
