PASADENA, Calif. -- Southern California and UCLA have been on divergent trajectories for nearly two months, so nobody in the chilly Rose Bowl crowd was terribly surprised when the Trojans charged right on through their faltering rivals Saturday night.That didnt make the blowout victory any less sweet for USC, which coolly maintained its LA dominance for another year with a businesslike bashing of the Bruins.Sam Darnold passed for 267 yards and hit DeQuan Hampton for two touchdowns, leading No. 13 USC past UCLA 36-14 in the Los Angeles rivals 86th crosstown showdown.Ronald Jones II rushed for 121 yards and two TDs for the surging Trojans (8-3, 7-2 Pac-12, No. 15 AP), who won their seventh straight game after a dismal start to the season. USC claimed the Victory Bell for the second consecutive year, overcoming Darnolds two early interceptions and eventually taking apart UCLAs solid defense for 527 total yards.Any time you beat a rival team like this, its always fun, USC linebacker Michael Hutchings said. Winning like this, its great for our team morale.The Trojans experienced another victory several hours earlier when they huddled around laptops in the team hotel to watch Utahs loss to Oregon, which kept USC in the Pac-12 South race.A few hours after USC finishes the regular season next Saturday against Notre Dame, the Trojans would claim the division title if the Utes beat No. 12 Colorado, which lost at USC last month.We needed one of those teams to lose to stay alive, and Oregon came through for us, USC coach Clay Helton said. We still need a little help, but now weve set our mark at 7-2.Jordan Lasley caught two first-half touchdown passes from Mike Fafaul for UCLA (4-7, 2-6). After five losses in their last six games, the Bruins are assured their first losing season in coach Jim Moras half-decade in charge.Ten years after UCLA stunned USC 13-9 and knocked Pete Carrolls team out of the national title race, Heltons Trojans calmly beat their rivals for the 14th time in 18 meetings.With both teams wearing their home jerseys in Arroyo Seco, USC extended its longest overall winning streak since Carrolls last conference championship season in 2008.Helton also improved to 2-0 in the crosstown showdown: He got the permanent job last year two days after the Trojans 40-21 victory over the Bruins and Mora, who had won his first three against USC.It was just a really tough and humbling night, Mora said after honoring his seniors before the game. Regardless of how this year has gone, those young men have done some tremendous things here. This was the first game (all season) that weve kind of not been in. Thats disappointing.USC went through the UCLA defense for 326 yards in the first half, just 30 yards shy of the Bruins average yield for entire games this season. The Trojans eventually held the ball for 43:47 and ran 95 plays to UCLAs 51.Darnold provided his usual cocktail of brilliance and exciting flaws, throwing two interceptions in the first half amid a series of stunning athletic runs and throws. The redshirt freshman hasnt lost since his debut start at Utah in September, leading the Trojans back into contention with his freewheeling skills.But the Bruins held an early 14-7 lead. Lasley took a mid-range pass 56 yards for a score in the opening moments, and he beat Adoree Jackson in 1-on-1 coverage early in the second quarter, right after Fabian Moreau returned Darnolds first interception inside the USC 10.When we were down 14-7, it was the same atmosphere, Darnold said. Guys werent going to give up. Its really a shift in culture that you can sense now.TURNING POINTUSC faced a deficit after the first quarter for the first time since its winning streak began, but Jones fixed that with his second TD run, bursting around the end for a spectacular 60-yard score. Hampton then made his first career TD catch with an exceptional 31-yard grab by the seldom-used sophomore.THE TAKEAWAYUCLA: The Bruins have endured a miserable second half after quarterback Josh Rosens season-ending injuries, but the defense has fought in every game. The overmatched offense kept it close early, but a thorough offseason recalibration seems vital.USC: The Trojans just keep getting more dangerous, even if it might be too late to win the Pac-12 South. Along with Jones latest big game, Darnold and Hampton made key plays against a defense that had allowed only eight TD catches all season. And its no surprise that Darnold, the unflappable Orange County native, easily handled the road pressure in his first LA rivalry matchup.POLL IMPLICATIONSFew teams are rolling like the Trojans. USC is likely to remain the nations highest-ranked team with three lossesUP NEXTUCLA: A trip to Berkeley for a rather drab season finale against California.USC: The famed intersectional rivalry game with Notre Dame at the Coliseum on Saturday to wrap up the regular season.
