Washington State Cougars Rout Trojans' Postseason Hopes

Kyle BunchSenior Analyst IMay 27, 2008

The Trojans went into Pullman on a high after winning a season-best five straight games, including a sweep of two-time defending National Champion OSU Beavers.

USC needed at least two wins, if not a sweep of Washington State, in order to make the case for a postseason berth. Talk about a buzz kill.

If the Trojans' hopes weren't completely dashed in their 8-5 loss to the Cougs on Friday, Saturday's 4-2 loss was the postseason death blow.

It wasn't a total loss as USC managed to hang on for a 8-7 win in their season closer, finishing with a 28-28 overall record and 11-13 in the Pac-10.
