Here’s my grades for the Trojans’ victory over Oregon State.
Cody Kessler’s completion numbers (17-21) look a lot better on paper than it did in person. But he made two nice deep throws to start each half.
Pretty good when your fourth-string tailback gains 133 yards and scores 3 TDs.
It’s still been a quiet season for Nelson Agholor even with the 62-yard reception.
Still too many penalties but a lot less than against Notre Dame.
Devon Kennard’s two sacks and J.R. Tavai’s four tackles led solid night.
Hayes Pullard had seven tackles while everyone else fairly quiet.
Three interceptions and not torched by Sean Mannion as some feared.
Too bad no one noticed Andre Heidari’s kicking motion was off before Week 8.
Too many timeouts burned in first quarter but cannot deny Ed Orgeron’s got Trojans inspired and playing the way fans hoped before the season.
