Top 25: No. 11 USC 24, Washington 14
Seattle • Anthony Brown blocked a punt and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown in the first half, Jawanza Starling forced and recovered Keith Price's fumble inside the USC 5-yard line in the fourth quarter and the No. 11 Trojans overcame offensive inconsistency for a 24-14 win over Washington on Saturday night.
Silas Redd rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown in the first half, and Matt Barkley added an 18-yard TD pass to Xavier Grimble as the Trojans continued rebuilding their resume following last month's loss to Stanford that appeared to end their national championship hopes.
The Trojans (5-1, 3-1 Pac-12) were held scoreless in the second half and got needed help from a defense that sacked Price five times and forced four turnovers to give USC its third straight win.
