Sam Darnold passed for 264 yards and a touchdown and rushed for another score, and No. 10 Southern California persevered for its fourth consecutive victory against crosstown rival UCLA, 28-23 on Saturday night.
Ronald Jones II rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns, and Michael Pittman Jr. returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown on a spectacular trick play in the first quarter of the regular-season finale for the Pac-12 South champion Trojans (10-2, 8-1).
Josh Rosen passed for 421 yards and hit Jordan Lasley for three touchdowns in the first — and probably only — collegiate meeting between Los Angeles' star quarterbacks.
Rosen found Lasley for a 27-yard score with 2:43 to play for UCLA (5-6, 3-5), but his 2-point conversion pass was too high for Lasley.
