    LOS ANGELES - Kyung Kim of the women's golf team and Matt Barkley and Robert Woods of the football team were named USC Student-Athletes of the Week today (Oct. 22) for the week of Oct. 15-21.

    Women's Golf: Freshman Kyung Kim followed her second-round 66 with a final-round 68 to win her first collegiate title while leading No. 3 USC to a four-stroke team win at the Stanford (Calif.) Intercollegiate on Sunday (Oct. 21). Kim claimed the solo lead with a score of 5-under on Saturday and maintained her momentum on Sunday with a 3-under round to finish 7-under 206 (72-66-68), three better than the second place finisher. She was 1-under on the front 9 and 2-under on the back with five birdies on the day. Kim led the team to a combined 5-over 857 (286-285-286) at Stanford on the weekend.

    Football: Both senior quarterback Matt Barkley and junior wide receiver Robert Woods had record-setting performances last Saturday (Oct. 20), as the Trojans defeated Colorado, 50-6. Barkley threw a USC single game record-tying six touchdown passes, including a school record-tying five in the first half, to become the Pac-12's career TD pass recordholder (102, breaking Matt Leinart's mark of 99). He also completed 95.0% of his passes (19-of-20, with a drop on the incompletion) to set the Pac-12 game mark for highest completion percentage (minimum of 20 attempts), just .8% shy of the NCAA record. His passing efficiency rating of 319.2 also broke the Pac-12 game standard. He finished the game with 298 yards overall. Woods, midway through his junior season, set the USC career receptions record (220, breaking Dwayne Jarrett's mark of 216) and the school single game TD catch record (four, tying the Pac-12 record). He finished with eight receptions for 132 yards.
