1. For a team that doesn't run the ball well, Oregon State had some success on the ground against the USC defense.
2. USC 's offense was outstanding on 1st down. There was some drop-off in performance on 2nd and 3rd downs but USC still executed at an above average level.
3. The Trojan pass defense was flat out dominant. Holding Oregon State to a success rate of 30% on pass plays and 23% on passing downs is Alabama-esque (I know, not a word).
