    Boston College (Emerald Bowl)13
    December 26, 2009
    San Francisco, Calif.
    Trojans Beat Eagles in Emerald Bowl, 24-13
    Matt Barkley threw touchdown passes to Stanley Havili on Southern California's first two possessions and added a touchdown run in the fourth quarter to help the Trojans beat Boston College 24-13 in the Emerald Bowl on Saturday night.

    USC, in the middle of a 3-game homestand, will look to bounce back from a trying loss in the Pac-12 opener when it hosts the ACC's Boston College in a West-versus-East matchup. It's just the fourth meeting between the schools (the teams will play again in 2014 in Chestnut Hill) and it is a rare California trip for the Eagles, who have competed in the Coliseum just once before. The teams last faced off in the 2009 Emerald Bowl, but both squads have different head coaches now.
