Beavers Fall Short at USC, 42-36
Oct. 24, 2009
LOS ANGELES (AP) -Allen Bradford rushed for a career-high 147 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 4 Southern California avenged its only loss of last season with a 42-36 victory over Oregon State on Saturday night.
Damian Williams returned a fourth-quarter punt 63 yards for a touchdown for the Trojans (6-1, 3-1 Pac-10), whose 27-21 loss to the Beavers last September prevented them from playing for the national title.
Sean Canfield passed for 329 yards and three touchdowns for the Beavers, who shredded USC's vaunted defense for 482 total yards in a back-and-forth offensive game. Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 113 yards and a score, and also caught a TD pass on an injured ankle as the Beavers (4-3, 2-2) again gave ample trouble to the defending Pac-10 champions.
