Katz completed 17-of-24 passes for 154 yards and Rodgers scored a touchdown for the Beavers (5-5, 4-3 Pac-10), who logged their biggest-ever margin of victory over the Trojans, stretching back to 1914.
USC (7-4, 4-4) played the second half without quarterback Matt Barkley, who sustained what appeared to be an ankle injury. He had gone 10-of-19 passing for 75 yards before leaving.
Barkley tossed an interception that cornerback Jordan Poyer returned 65 yards for a touchdown in the loss.
