Washington State will have their hands full when the multi talented fourth ranked USC Trojans invade Martin Stadium Friday night. Pullman should be rocking for this one. This game could carry possible FBCS playoff implications.

Washington State Cougars
The Washington State Cougars are looking to do something special this season. Win a Pac 12 title. The Cougars rank 16th in the country this season. Washington State beat Nevada last week in Pullman, 45-7.
Cougars quarterback Luke Falk was outstanding in the win. He was 36 of 47 with 478 yards passing, five touchdowns and no interceptions. He led the Washington State offensive attack. They totaled 560 yards for the game.
