USC Launches Matt Barkley Heisman Campaign

All it took was an upset victory against No. 4 Oregon on the road at Autzen Stadium for the USC athletic department to start a Heisman Trophy campaign for quarterback Matt Barkley.

Barkley threw for 323 yards and four touchdowns Saturday as the Trojans held on to a 38-35 victory over the Ducks.

The Newport Beach junior has numbers similar to that of previous USC Heisman winners Carson Palmer (2002) and Matt Leinart (2004) through 11 games.

Hurting Barkley’s chances of even receiving an invite to the Dec. 10 ceremony in New York is USC’s ongoing probation and bowl ban. He has one last game to impress Heisman voters when the Trojans host crosstown rivals UCLA Saturday night at the Coliseum.
