USC’s Kessler Breaks Single-Game Record With 7 TD Passes In Rout Over Colorado

Originally posted on CBS Los Angeles:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Kessler set a school single-game record with seven touchdown passes, throwing five in the first half of No. 22 Southern California’s 56-28 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

Nelson Agholor caught three TD passes from Kessler, who broke the mark previously held by Matt Barkley. He passed the record on a 24-yard TD pass to Steven Mitchell, who made a diving catch in the third quarter of a blowout victory for the Trojans (5-2, 4-1 Pac-12).

Kessler also became the first Pac-12 quarterback to throw seven TD passes in the first three quarters of a game, and the junior tied the conference record for TD passes in a non-overtime game. He finished 17 of 24 for 318 yards.

[worldnow id=10727689 width=385 height=288 type=video]

Nelson Spruce and Shay Fields each caught TD passes for Colorado (2-5, 0-4).

Sefo Liufau had 143 yards passing with two interceptions before…

Notre Dame Got Screwed in Tallahassee by the Referees

Originally posted on The Big Lead:

Notre Dame called for OPI against Florida State

Notre Dame got shafted badly by the referees in the closing seconds against Florida State, as the game-winning touchdown was wiped off the board on a bogus offensive pass interference penalty.

Use your eyes, and watch it:

1) The FSU defender (8) is jamming the Notre Dame WR (20) at the line of scrimmage.

2) First contact? That belongs to the FSU defender, who grabs the Notre Dame WR with both arms. The Notre Dame player takes one step before he’s grabbed with two arms.

3) Even on the Notre Dame receiver’s 2nd and 3rd steps, he’s still getting grabbed and trying to get leverage. He can’t, because he’s getting grabbed. Watch his lower body struggle.

4) The Notre Dame receiver tries to lean forward into the end zone, but the FSU defender starts pulling him down, but notices that, “oh shit, that guy is wide open and he’s going…

Hundley Throws For 330 Yards To Help UCLA Edge CAL, 36-34

Originally posted on CBS Los Angeles:

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Brett Hundley threw for 330 yards and two touchdowns and added a third score on the ground to help UCLA snap a seven-game skid at California with a 36-34 victory Saturday.

Hundley accounted for 424 yards of offense to overcome his own fumble and interception as the Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) won at Memorial Stadium for the first time since 1998.

It wasn’t easy with the Bruins not taking the lead for good until Ka’imi Fairbairn kicked his third field goal, a 26-yarder with 3:40 remaining that provided the go-ahead score and helped UCLA get back on the winning track after losses to Utah and Oregon.

The win was sealed when Marcus Rios made a juggling interception on a Jared Goff pass at the 2-yard line with 51 seconds left to thwart Cal’s comeback attempt.

Goff threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns for the Golden…
