Inside the Numbers: USC – Cal

LOS ANGELES, Calif., - We go inside the numbers to learn more about USC's 27-9 win over the Cal Bears.

2- The number of 100 yard rushers USC had today against Cal. For a team that has struggled to establish the run, it was promising to see Curtis McNeal and Silas Redd both eclipse the century mark. McNeal finished the night with 115 yards on just 10 carries and Redd carried the ball 21 times for 158 yards and a score. Redd's career-high is 164 yards, which came against Northwestern in 2011.

3 - Morgan Breslin's three quarterback sacks in Saturday's 27-9 win over Cal were the most for a USC player since Rey Maualuga had three against Illinois in the 2008 Rose Bowl. Breslin's 4.5 tackles for loss were also the most since Lawrence Jackson totaled 5.5 against Arizona State in 2007. The JUCO transfer continues to be the surprise performer of USC's star-studded 2012 recruiting class.

8- The number of consecutive games that sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee has hauled in at least 8 receptions. The talented playmaker had 11 receptions for 94 yards and added two more touchdowns today, bringing his season total to six. Lee and Robert Woods continue to take short passes and turn them into long gains, but USC still needs to mix in more deep passes to keep defenses honest.

9 – USC's dominance over Cal has now extended to nine straight victories. Cal has always been a great matchup for the Trojans and they were the perfect team to face coming off of the demoralizing loss at Stanford.

24 – The number of games in which Matt Barkley has thrown multiple touchdown passes in a game.

90 – The percentage of field goal attempts that USC kicker Andre Heidari has connected on his college career. Heidari returned to action on Saturday, after missing the past two games, and kicked a 40 and 41-yard field goal. Heidari is now an impressive 18-of-20 as a Trojan.

201 – The number of passes that Robert Woods has caught since arriving on campus three years ago. The former Serra standout is now tied with Johnnie Morton for fourth on USC's all-time career receptions list. Woods' contribution the past three seasons can't be determined by stats alone as he continues to be an unquestioned team leader and one of the hardest working players in the program.

83,421 – The number of fans that came out to watch USC get back on track against the Golden Bears. There were some big-time recruits among the faces in the crowd, including: Su'a Cravens, Ty Isaac, Sebastian LaRue, Dwight Williams and Adoree Jackson.
