LOS ANGELES -- A look at the positives and negatives from the Trojans’ 27-9 victory over California on Saturday.

THREE UP

1. USC ground game: USC relied heavily upon a running game that exploded for 296 yards against the Golden Bears. Both tailbacks thrived in their increased rolls, with Silas Redd rushing for 158 yards and Curtis McNeal racking up 115 yards. Credit also needs to be given to an offensive line that looked rejuvenated with Khaled Holmes back in the lineup.
