Pat Haden threw two second quarter touchdown passes to put this one away and the Rams used a posse of backs to run the ball to success in the second half.

The spread was a massive 21 points to the Rams in their own backyard.

The Bucs fielded an all-USC backfield of Anthony Davis and Ricky Bell on their old college stomping ground of the Coliseum but with a totally opposite result to the one they used to enjoy as Trojans.
