College Football: USC dominates Virginia, 52-7

Story by Chris Graham

Third-ranked Southern Cal scored on its first four possessions and was never really challenged in a 52-7 win at Virginia this evening in Charlottesville.

Quarterback Mark Sanchez had a career day, completing 26 of his 35 pass attempts for 338 yards and three touchdowns three weeks after injuring his left kneecap in practice. The Trojans outgained Virginia by a 558 yards-to-187 yards margin on the day.

Sophomore Peter Lalich completed 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 155 yards in his first career start. Lalich, who won a three-man quarterback battle to get the starting nod, also threw an interception and lost two fumbles in the second half.
