The USC Trojans are in Seattle this weekend to take on Pac-12 North opponent Washington at their temporary home, CenturyLink Field. The two teams share a number of things in common, interesting statistical anomalies and a fall from perceived grace by the two teams’ formerly (ish?) standout quarterbacks.
There is no way that USC should lose this game, but let’s be honest, stranger things have happened. Bigger losses have happened. I am sure I do not have to rehash all of that.
Can I mention, for just a moment, the absolute ridiculousness of Oregon State being ranked ahead of USC? Sure, I know the Beavers are undefeated; I get why it is so, but it is not right—do you feel me Trojan fans?
It’s Friday night, game day is tomorrow and I am feeling a bit punchy. So let’s take a look at the interesting stories going into this 83rd meeting of the Trojans and the Huskies.
