LOS ANGELES • Matt Barkley passed for 192 yards and threw two touchdown passes to Marqise Lee, and No. 13 Southern California bounced back from its first defeat with a 27-9 victory over California on Saturday.

Lee had 11 catches for 94 yards, and Silas Redd rushed for 158 yards and a score as the Trojans (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12) grinded out their ninth consecutive win over the Golden Bears (1-3, 0-1) in the schools' 100th meeting.

A week after the preseason No. 1 team got shut out in the second half of a 21-14 loss at Stanford, USC drained the suspense from this matchup with a methodical 75-yard drive that consumed more than half of the fourth quarter, capped by Lee's 3-yard TD catch with 5 minutes, 56 seconds to play.

Keenan Allen had nine catches for 94 yards for the Bears, who couldn't get into the Coliseum end zone and managed just 250 yards. —
