Matthews played for the USC Trojans football team (2005-2008 seasons; 2004 redshirt) under head coach Pete Carroll and Linebacker Coach Ken Norton Jr. Matthews entered USC as an unheralded, walk-on student athlete. During his first season, USC's 2004 National Championship season, he played only on the scout team and turned down several playing opportunities during garbage time during the fourth quarters of games in order to preserve his redshirt status and remaining seasons of NCAA eligibility.
Matthews was one of twelve senior USC football players, including the four linebackers Cushing, Maiava, Matthews and Maualuga, attending the by-invitation-only 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Matthews, alongside fellow USC linebackers Maualuga and Cushing, was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated's 2009 NFL Draft Preview magazine, as all three were regarded as potential first round selections.
On November 7, 2010, in a Sunday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys, Cowboys quarterback Jon Kitna threw a pass, which was batted by Packers linebacker A. J. Hawk into the hands of Matthews. Matthews then returned the interception 62 yards for a touchdown. This was his first career interception, and his second career touchdown.Matthews was awarded with the NFL's defensive player of the month award for September 2010 after getting 6 sacks in the first two weeks of the 2010 season.
