LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cody Kessler threw for a career-high 410 yards and hit JuJu Smith-Schuster with two of his three touchdown passes, leading No. 8 Southern California past Idaho 59-9 Saturday night for its second straight blowout win.

Smith-Schuster set career highs with 10 catches for 192 yards as the Trojans (2-0) piled up 738 total yards and routed a Sun Belt Conference opponent for the second straight week.

USC led 38-3 at halftime after racking up 434 yards on just 46 plays, with Justin Davis and Tre Madden scoring two touchdowns apiece.

Kessler went 26 for 31 with no interceptions, hitting Isaac Whitney for a 28-yard score in the second half. USC's senior quarterback has passed for 650 yards and seven touchdowns while beating Arkansas State and Idaho (0-1) by a combined 99 points.
