The WSU Cougars take on the USC Trojans at the Los Angeles Coliseum today in the first conference game for both teams. Here's a more detailed look our coverage.
While we know that USC's fans are pretty much assuming a victory is a foregone conclusion, we all are obviously holding out hope that another strong performance by the team, minus the mistakes that killed the Cougs last week, might allow WSU to pull off the upset.
Of course, it's going to be difficult: USC features the same kinds of athletes that busted loose for big plays for Auburn. But if you're looking for a reason to be positive, those big plays came about because of assignment breakdowns that ought to be correctable.
