Washington State Cougars vs USC Trojans

Washington State Cougars

Following a 28-9 victory over the California Golden Bears, the Cougars improved to 4-1 overall and 1-1 in Pac-12.

Washington State finished with 14 points in the fourth quarter against the Golden Bears. Cameron Ward threw three touchdowns for 343 yards and had two interceptions. Renard Bell led the receivers with 115 yards and a touchdown on eight catches.

On Saturday, Washington State's defense will face another test against one of the nation's highest-scoring teams. The Cougars’ defense allows 18.2 points and 371.8 yards per game. Their defensive line needs to be more prepared if they don't want to be swamped by the Trojans' offense.

The Cougars recently reported several absences for Saturday's lineup, namely WR Zeriah Beason due to an eligibility issue, while the status of TE Cooper Mathers (foot) and DB Jordan Lee (undefined) remains questionable for the next game against the Trojans.

USC Trojans

USC defeated Arizona State 42-25 on Saturday night to advance to a perfect 5-0 overall and 2-0 in Pac-12. Star QB Caleb Williams finished with three TDs for 348 yards in that game. Travis Dye added two touchdowns from the ground.

The Trojan's defense has been solid all season long, as they have held three of their opponents to 17 points or less. USC is currently ranked sixth in the AFCA Coaches Poll.

The team has several absences, including DB Joshua Jackson Jr., WR Michael Jackson III, LB Chirs Thompson Jr., OL Jason Rodriguez, DB Adonis Otey, PK Garth White and DB Briton Allen.
