LOS ANGELES — Robert Woods handed the football to Matt Barkley after he caught the USC quarterback's 100th touchdown pass — and Barkley promptly tried to throw it to an official, causing Woods a bit of concern.

The All-America receiver really didn't need to worry. Woods and Barkley could have gone home from the Coliseum with a whole bunch of souvenirs after a record-setting day in their prolific partnership.

Barkley threw for 298 yards and six touchdowns while establishing USC's new career mark for TD passes, and Woods set a pair of school records in the 11th-ranked Trojans' 50-6 victory over Colorado.

Barkley and Woods connected on scoring throws of 39, 29, 17 and 3 yards in the first 35 minutes for USC, which finally showcased its offensive might against hapless Colorado after a season of mostly unintimidating performances.

"It's definitely an honor to have my name with guys like that," said Barkley, who surpassed Matt Leinart's USC and conference records for career TD passes. "It's special to be able to celebrate it with Robert and the guys."

Woods set a game school record for TD catches, and he passed Dwayne Jarrett on USC's career receptions list with his 217th catch on his third scoring grab.
