*with the exception of an overtime loss in 2003. But really, check the scores. It's only gotten worse for Cal vs. USC over the last decade.
Pete Carroll owned Tedford and now Tedford's own protege, Lane Kiffin, has continued the trend with a 48-14 Bear beatdown at the Coliseum.
Offense? Try 600+ yards. Matt Barkley tied the school record for touchdown passes in a game (again) in the first half. Imagine if he'd played the entire game.
Defense? Wooooohooooooo Trojans finally got themselves a defense! Run? Stuffed. Cal's leading rusher was held to 53 on the ground. Quarterback? Pressured. And sacked twice. Yards of total offense? 245, the fewest the Trojans have allowed all season.
And all the above happened not in some cupcake game against a lesser opponent: Cal and USC were evenly matched in rushing yards and rushing defense heading into the game (Cal was much, much, much better on defense, while USC's passing game was - and continues to be - more productive).
On paper, it looked like a close game. On the field, USC had three touchdowns before Cal even converted a first down.
That's called domination.
It was great to see it back on the home team's side of the Coliseum.
