The USC 10: Week 6

10/15/2012

Each week, the WeAreSC staff will update the rankings to reflect which USC players are making the biggest impact.

Here is the USC 10 following the 24-14 victory over Washington:

1. Matt Barkley: Barkley put up his most pedestrian numbers of the year, but they came in a win. He is still the straw that stirs the Trojans’ drink.

2. Dion Bailey: An acrobatic interception, a vicious hit to cause a fumble and tied for the team lead in tackles. Just another day at the office for Bailey.

3. Silas Redd: This was the game where Redd really asserted himself as an SC tailback. He had 26 carries for 155 yards and a touchdown.

4. Morgan Breslin: He added another 1.5 sacks and continued to be a key force in the consistent pressure being applied by the USC defense.

5. T.J. McDonald: The Trojans held Washington running back Bishop Sankey to under 100 yards for the first time in three games, and McDonald is a big reason for that.

6. Marqise Lee: It speaks to Lee’s high standard of play that it’s so noticeable when he is limited to two catches for 32 yards.

7. Josh Shaw: USC has been looking for a second corner, and the Trojans may have found him in Shaw, who had five tackles and an interception against the Huskies.

8. Robert Woods: Led the Trojans with five catches for 88 yards.

9. Khaled Holmes: His return from an ankle injury has done a lot to settle the offensive line in recent weeks.

10. Wes Horton: The biggest veteran on the Trojans d-line is back to form after an early-season ankle injury and that’s good news for this team.
