SEATTLE (AP) - After one of the more mediocre performances of his career, Matt Barkley faced a slew of critical questions.
At least none of them had to do with another loss.
Barkley insisted there was nothing wrong following No. 11 Southern California's 24-14 win over Washington on Saturday night that included a scoreless second half for the Trojans and Barkley's fewest completions in a game since late in his sophomore season.
USC coach Lane Kiffin decided to be cautious with his star QB and not put him at risk for undo harm in the second half with the Trojans holding a 24-7 lead at the break. Barkley attempted only 10 passes after the break.
