Gophers Defeated By Trojans, 32-21

(Sports Network) – Robert Woods’ 97-yard kickoff return in the third quarter began a string of 19 straight Trojans points, as 18th-ranked Southern California survived Minnesota, 32-21.

Allen Bradford carried the load in the running game, amassing 129 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries for USC (3-0), which was coming off a lackluster 17-14 win over Virginia last week.

Matt Barkley had another mediocre game behind center, completing 16-of-25 passes for 191 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the win.

The Trojans’ defense held Minnesota (1-2) to 305 total yards, with Adam Weber completing only 15-of-29 throws for 226 yards with two TDs and two picks in defeat, the Golden Gophers’ second straight.
