In a hyped matchup of superstars that featured Matt Barkley, Marquise Lee, De’Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota, it was another, less glamorous player who was the difference in Oregon’s 62-51 shootout win over USC on Saturday night.
His name is Kenjon Barner, and he not only had a night to remember, but one that set the Los Angeles Coliseum record books on fire. In the process, he pushed Oregon one step closer to their second BCS title game appearance in three years.
On Saturday Barner was the answer to all of Oregon’s questions and a nightmare from which Lane Kiffin and Co. might never wake up from. In a game filled with staggering stat lines, Barner had the most shocking one of all, finishing the game with five touchdowns and 321 yards on 36 carries. Included were a crucial third quarter score and two more touchdowns in the fourth to put the final nail in USC’s coffin.
It also launched Oregon’s best case for being one of two teams to play in the BCS National Championship i...
