After being sidelined against Stanford because of an ankle injury, USC receiver Damian Williams returned to the lineup -- and also returned punts.
Coach Pete Carroll had said that Joe McKnight would return punts, but Williams was the first man up.
Williams had returns of 22 and 24 yards in the first half, finishing with four for 62 yards.
He also caught one pass for 16 yards in the first half and finished with five receptions for 82 yards and the final touchdown.
The Trojans and the Bruins both wore home jerseys for the second year in a row.
Last season, because of NCAA rules, USC lost a timeout as a penalty for not wearing white road jerseys at the Rose Bowl. UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel then took a timeout as a courtesy.
The NCAA changed the rules this season, allowing teams to wear home jerseys on the road for rivalry games if the visiting team submits a written request with the host school and conference office.
