We have reached week four of the college football season and the PAC 12 is kicking off their conference season on Friday night. The Washington State Cougars make the trip to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to take on the struggling USC Trojans.
Last year when these two teams faced off the Cougars came out ahead 30-27.
Washington State Cougars
The Washington State Cougars beat a good Wyoming Cowboys team in their first game but since that time they have had two cupcakes and did exactly what was expected, blow them out.
In their last game they took on Eastern Washington and the offense was no match running up the score putting up 59 points on the way to an easy victory.
Quarterback Gardner Minshew has looked like the real deal throwing for 1203 yards and eight touchdowns. He has also thrown three interceptions.
This will be a bigger test for the Cougars and Minshew and they need him to be strong early and take care of the football.
To win this game the Cougars they need to get out to a fast start. The Trojans aren’t playing with a lot of confidence and if the Cougars can get out to a fast start they should sit in pretty good shape.
On the other side of this matchup is the USC Trojans who might not be as good as most people thought they would be this year.
They come into this game having won only one game against UNLV and in the last two games against Stanford and Texas they have looked really bad.
The offense has looked terrible the last two games and a big reason has been their freshman quarterback. JT Daniels has thrown for 819 yards one touchdown and three interceptions.
They have also had issues getting the running game going averaging just over 100 yards per game and that hasn’t helped the case.
To win this game the offense needs to get a ground attack going. The Cougars have a good offense and if the Trojans can’t get much going they will lose this game.
