Barkley-To-Telfer TD Pass Highlights USC's First Scrimmage
Aug. 10, 2012
Quarterback Matt Barkley threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to tight end Randall Telfer on a hot Friday (Aug. 10) afternoon in the Coliseum to highlight USC's first intrasquad football scrimmage of fall 2012 practice.
The day's only other score came when walk-on cornerback William Tober returned a fumble 73 yards.
The 73-play scrimmage came on the Trojans' first day in full pads in fall camp. The offense had 3 turnovers, was penalized 5 times and gave up 4 sacks.
"It was our first time out in the Coliseum and it was good to see the guys in action, although the young players made some mistakes," said third-year USC head coach Lane Kiffin. "The defense was ahead of the offense a lot of the time. But we got in some good work."
The No. 3-ranked Trojans open their 2012 season at home against Hawaii on Sept. 1, with tickets available online at USCTrojans.com or by calling the USC Ticket Office at (213) 740-4672.
