In a matchup of potential top picks in the 2018 NFL draft, USC’s Sam Darnold led his team past UCLA and Josh Rosen in the Trojans’ 28-23 victory on Saturday. 

Rosen won the statistical battle against Darnold. The Bruins signal-caller went 32-of-52 for 421 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. USC’s star countered that by going 17-of-28 for 264 yards with one rushing touchdown and one interception. 

One reason for Darnold’s output is USC made a concerted effort to focus on the running game, racking up 153 yards on 41 carries and three of their four touchdowns to take advantage of a Bruins defense that entered Saturday ranked last in the FBS with 302.3 yards allowed per game on the ground. 

Despite that shortcoming on UCLA’s side of things, both defenses played well enough to keep the score from getting out of hand. 

Darnold and Rosen still have approximately three months to decide if
