There was a reason the conference made Washington State the lone North Division opponent for USC. And it worked masterfully on Sunday night. The problem is the conference is so bad that USC going 7-0 will go nowhere with the CFP.
He led USC with 9 tackles as Todd Orlando moved him up to linebacker against the run-and-shoot offense. He also did it while talking trash the entire game. That’s called multi-tasking.
Forget the stats. He threw spirals Sunday night. Maybe the two-week break helped.

Talk about maximizing 65 yards in receiving. Four TDs in a quarter. I couldn’t help but get flashbacks to when Lane Kiffin tried to pad stats of his receivers when Graham Harrell called that shovel pass TD play for St. Brown.
Was he nudged at all to decommit from USC like Matt Corral? Who knows but QBs who leave or decommit from USC seem to be doing pretty good these days.
He comes to L.A. with four of his top eight secondary players out and what does he do? He plays man defense. Does he not watch film? USC destroys defenses in man coverage. And for that matter, it looked to me like he picked the wrong quarterback to start the game.
The crew that drew so much criticism for the blantant offsides that wasn’t called against Oregon last week came to the Coliseum and promptly let Marlon Tuipulotu jump offside on the first series of the game. Thanks, Larry Scott.
You’re blowing out Washington State and you put Slovis back in the game after he hurt his arm? And then he takes a rough hit. And you leave him in? Yet some fans still defend this guy.
Two carries for minus-2 yards. One reception for minus-5 yards. Blame the offensive line. USC’s longest run from scrimmage was 7 yards.
