Kessler Throws School-Record 7 TDs as (22) USC Clobbers Colorado

Kessler Throws School-Record 7 TDs as (22) USC Clobbers Colorado

BananaStock/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Cody Kessler threw for a school-record seven touchdowns to lead No. 22 USC past Colorado 56-28 Saturday.

Kessler was on fire throwing all seven of his touchdowns in the first three quarters to break the record previously set by Matt Barkley in 2011.

"It's an honor for me to break his record," Kessler said."But I'm thankful he (Barkley) set the bar so high and taught me as much as he did."

Kessler threw three of those touchdowns to receiver Nelson Agholor, who had six catches for 128 yards in the win.

The game was never in doubt for USC (5-2, 4-1 Pac-12), which led 28-0 after the first quarter.

The one bright spot for Colorado (2-5, 0-4) was receiver Nelson Spruce. He caught his 11th touchdown of the season, tying the school's record.

Javorius Allen ran for 128 yards and a touchdown and has now ran for over 100 yards in five of USC's first six games. He becomes the first Trojan's player to do that since Reggie Bush in 2005.

Top WR Nate Craig Commits to Auburn

Top WR Nate Craig Commits to Auburn

BananaStock/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Nate Craig, the No. 1 wide receiver and No. 6 player overall in the ESPN Junior 300, verbally committed to play football for the University of Auburn on Monday night.

Craig chose the Tigers over USC, Ohio State, and Alabama.

"I just thought Auburn was the best fit for me," Craig said. "I got to go up there this weekend and spend some time with coach [Dameyune] Craig and coach [Gus] Malzahn and that just sealed the deal for me."

"I was at Alabama for the whole week, but just building a relationship with the Auburn coaches and coach Craig was a big impact on my recruitment and did a great job. With coach Malzahn I got to spend some time with him and then I sat down with my mom and decided to make a decision," he continued.

The 6-foot-2, 202-pound Craig caught 37 passes for 502 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore for Tampa Catholic High School this past season. 

Auburn now has three commits for the class of 2016.
