Everything was peachy Sunday night after an easy win over Utah.
Clay Helton praised defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu and said he “may be the best defensive player in our league right now, the way he’s playing.”
- Helton said defensive end Nick Figueroa is playing at an “all-conference” level the first three games.
- Helton said linebacker Ralen Goforth sprained his foot during the game.
- Helton said he was pleased with the running game: “The numbers don’t show it in the run game, but I thought the run game was productive for the number of times we handed it off.”
- The Apple Cup (Washington-Washington State) was canceled. That means if Washington State is healthy, it would have two weeks off before playing USC.
- Tight end Josh Falo has rejoined the team following the birth of his daughter.
- USC opened a 12.5-point favorite over Colorado according to BetOnline.
