USC football: Cody Kessler sore but happy after victory

USC scored only one touchdown in its 19-3 victory over Utah, but quarterback Cody Kessler was upbeat.

“I think we took some big strides to pull out a win under the circumstances we had,” Kessler said after the victory that improved the Trojans' record to 5-3.

Kessler completed 21 of 32 passes for 230 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown to reciever Nelson Agholor.

Kessler was sacked five times.

“That one definitely hurt,” he said of the hard-hitting Pac-12 contest Saturday at the Coliseum. “I’ll be sore in the morning.”

Kessler has passed for nine touchdowns, with five interceptions.

USC plays at Oregon State on Friday night.
