LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13 (UPI) --
Fourth-ranked Southern California matched its longest winning streak in 13 years Saturday, using every facet of its game to ovrwhelm Hawaii, 61-32.
The Trojans (3-0) returned a fumble and interception for touchdowns en route to their 11th straight win. Only Ohio State (17) and Boise State (12) have longer active streaks.
Matt Leinart threw a pair of scoring passes and Reggie Bush added two TD runs for USC, which posted its highest point total in the last 14 years.
Timmy Chang and Jason Whieldon each had a pair of TD passes for Hawaii (1-1). Chang made his season debut after sitting out the opener due to a violation of the Western Athletic Conference's new six-credit rule.
