The USC 10: Week 10

By WeAreSC staff

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 62-51 loss to Oregon:

1. Marqise Lee: The most dynamic player in college football had 12 catches for 157 yards and a pair of touchdowns while also adding a Pac-12-record 251 kickoff-return yards.

Matt Barkley
Matt Barkley's five touchdown passes weren't enough as USC lost to Oregon, 62-51.
2. Matt Barkley: It was another extremely productive game for Barkley with 35 of 54 completions for 484 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

3. Silas Redd: Redd brought a physical style to the SC run game with 18 carries for 92 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

4. Lamar Dawson: His impact was felt both ways. Dawson led the team with 11 tackles, but he also had a key missed interception and a missed tackle that led directly to a touchdown.

5. Nelson Agholor: The true freshman had his breakout game and showed that he can be an explosive player. Agholor led USC receivers with 162 yards on six catches, including a 76-yard touchdown.

6. Robert Woods: It wasn’t his biggest stat line -- six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown -- but his effort to get in the end zone on the final drive really resonated with his teammates.

7. Khaled Holmes: Still the heart of the Trojans' offensive line, Holmes will need to continue his solid play over these next few weeks for a potential run to Pac-12 title game.

8. Wes Horton: The senior leader of the USC defensive line will need to continue stepping up, especially if USC gets a rematch with the Ducks. He had four tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.

9. George Uko: He was supposed to be the next big-time interior D-lineman for the Trojans, but so far he has yet to make that step up. Uko had two tackles against the Ducks.

10. T.J. McDonald: Had 10 tackles in the game, but it was fairly quiet as nobody on the USC defense did a good job against the Oregon offense.
