Here are the grades for the no-job-on-the-line loss to UCLA.
RESULT: No. 18 UCLA 38, No. 21 USC 28
RECORD: 7-4, 5-4
WEEK 11 GRADE: D+
Yet another time Matt Barkley fails to lead USC to a comeback victory.
At least Curtis McNeal (163 yards) plays with passion. And he did not lose a yard.
Why are there still so many miscommunications between Barkley and top receivers?
UCLA kept unit under duress but allowed only one sack.
Morgan Breslin’s got 11.5 sacks but no one stopped Johnathan Franklin.
Is it there fault USC stuck in Cover 2 defense on third downs?
Undone by UCLA QB Brett Hundley and passive defensive coverages.
Blocked punt. Blocked field goal. Missed extra point. Missed field goal.
No fire. No enthusiasm. Just another post-game promise to “get it fixed.’’
