USC vs Washington ST Review.

 Yesterday USC opened Pac-10 play im Pulman Washington to face the Washington St Cougars. USC going into this game was expected to make a Major statement against a weak Washington St team. At the Start Washington St jumpped on SC at the start but came SC's Drive USC showed why they were USC with Stanley Havili's 56 Yard Run. The first half was shakey with turnovers left and right. Barkley threw two INT's in the first half and Allen Bradford fumbled to put him on the bench. The halftime score was 28-13 but came second half it was Old School USC all the way. USC managed to get there act together and outscore the Cougs 22-3.  USC took the win 50-16 going into the Washington game in LA.

 USC to me played alot better than the last few previous games. The First was shakey with the turnovers and all but once the second half hit USC played alot better. The secondary still needs some work. They gave up too many yards in the air but they are also getting turnovers and INTs. Nickell Robey after getting beat for the Opening TD made up for it with two INT's. TJ McDonald also got a Pick on Jeff Tuel as well. The D Line was outstanding for the Trojans only allowing 67 Yards Rushing and Sacking the QB 3 times. I loved the pressure that the D Line got but I feel they need to do better getting to that QB making him make mistakes. The Offense on the other hand was all Stanley Havili. What a performance from him on Saturday. Other than Stanley Matt Barkley had a some what good day but He needs to stop forcing passes. He threw 2 Picks from bad passes. Dillon Baxter some what brokeout and Bradford Fumbled which got him on the bench. Overall USC play better and moved up to 18 in the AP Polls. Now USC prepares for their first Revenge game against Steve Sarkisain and the Washington Huskies. This will be an intresting game for the Trojans but that will be for another post.
