    [​IMG]No letdown for USC. No letdown for quarterback Matt Barkley.

    [​IMG][​IMG]Barkley threw for a school-record six touchdowns and 318 yards in the Trojans' easy 42-17 win at Colorado, showing few signs of a hangover from the triple-overtime loss to Stanford last weekend.

    Barkley did have a bad interception right before halftime that set up a Buffaloes field goal. Otherwise he was brilliant, even with a few drops from his receivers.

    USC improved to 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the Pac-12. Colorado fell to 1-9 and 0-6, the game again highlighting how far behind the Buffs are athletically.

    Colorado's injury-ravaged secondary was particularly vulnerable. Robert Woods and Marqise Lee each caught two of Barkley's TD passes. Woods caught nine passes for 130 yards, and Lee had nine receptions for 124 yards.

    Said Barkley, "We were throwing the ball all over the place. Thank you, Coach [Lane] Kiffin for the calls."

    USC will play host to Washington on Nov. 12. Colorado will be at UCLA.
