Briefs: Barkley collects honors

USC junior quarterback Matt Barkley, a Newport Beach resident, has been named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and he also earned second-team all-conference honors in football, it was announced Monday.

Barkley completed 35 of 42 passes (83.3%), a school record, for 423 yards and six touchdowns in the Trojans' 50-0 blowout of crosstown rival UCLA on Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

His six touchdown passes tied his own school single-game record set earlier this year at Colorado. Barkley finishes the season with a .691 completion percentage, breaking Rob Johnson's 1993 school season record of 68.6%.

He finishes with 3,258 passing yards, the fifth-best single-season total in USC annals. He completed 308 of 446 with 39 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

The three-year starter has completed 755 of 1,175 career pass attempts for 9,054 yards. He has 80 touchdown passes and 33 interceptions.

Barkley has not announced whether he will return for his senior season or make himself eligible for the NFL Draft.
