Kessler's screen pass to Silas Redd in the first quarter resulted in a 12-yard touchdown that gave USC a 14-0 lead.

Tailback Javorius Allen caught a short pass from Kessler and turned it into a 57-yard scoring play.

"It's nice when you can throw a four-yard pass and you have athletes like that, that can take it 50-plus" yards, Kessler said.

Kessler has completed 64% of his passes, 12 for touchdowns, with six interceptions.
