College Football Week 7: #11 USC At Washington
|Salt Lake City was fired up for the Trojans, but USC shook off a rusty start to handle the Utes. Even with Oregon still on the schedule, Lane Kiffin’s Trojans are the favorite to represent the South in the Pac-12 title game.||Coaching||The Huskies never recovered from a terrible first quarter against Oregon, but they’ll have to find a way to get back up for a huge home game against USC, where Washington coach Steve Sarkisian was an assistant for seven years. He is 2-1 against his former school.|
|Now there’s the Matt Barkley we know. Last Thursday, Barkley was 23 for 30 with three touchdowns, and several of his incompletions were drops, including a few that would have been big gains. USC is getting enough on the ground to keep defenses honest.||Offense||The Huskies have played five games—enough to get a sense of where they stand—and are 109th in total offense. Quarterback Keith Price struggled but the good news is that Bishop Sankey recorded his third straight 100-yard game on the ground.|
|The Trojan defense was stellar for the second straight week. Don’t look at the 28 points Utah scored because half of those were a result of USC turnovers. The Utes couldn’t get anything going in the second half.||Defense||Oregon piles up big numbers against everybody. This Washington defense is above average and may fare better than expected against a pass-first USC team.|
|USC has been solid across the board in its special teams, but Adam Heidari did miss field goals from 40 and 43 yards last week.||Special Teams||The Huskies have only attempted four field goals this season but have made three. Washington fumbled a punt last week and lost possession.|
