He then completed 2-of-3 passes for 33 yards, with a 24-yard TD toss, against Colorado. He filled in for an injured Matt Barkley for a series-plus at the end at UCLA, going 3-of-3 for 40 yards. He then started for an injured Barkley against Notre Dame and was 14-of-23 for 186 yards with 1 TD and 2 interceptions. He started again for an injured Barkley against Georgia Tech and was 14-f-37 for 107 yards with 1 TD and 3 interceptions while throwing in 20 mph winds.
