SEATTLE (AP) - Matt Barkley was just a freshman and knew there would be other chances later in his career to get even with Washington.
It didn't make watching Huskies fans pour onto the field following Washington's upset of the then-No. 3 Trojans three seasons ago any easier for Barkley to accept after sitting on the sidelines the entire game with a sore shoulder.
Barkley and his No. 11 Trojans make their first visit to Seattle since that 2009 upset when they face the Huskies on Saturday at CenturyLink Field. Even though he didn't play the last time USC (4-1, 2-1 Pac-12) ventured north, Barkley doesn't view this matchup with any more importance with the Trojans trying to rebuild a resume that took a hit less than a month ago with their upset loss at Stanford.
