Live chat, gameday links from L.A.


FROM LOS ANGELES — The last time Washington State won a football game in this city against Southern California, George W. Bush and Al Gore were arguing over who had won the presidential election. The Cougars have about 13 and a half hours before they take the field to try to end that streak. We have links before they do.

– First, a reminder that we'll launch our pregame live chat at about 6:30 p.m., so stop by then if you want to get some questions answered.

– Our story today focuses on the strong possibility that true freshman Daquawn Brown will make his first career start in the city where he grew up.

– In addition, we have our keys to a possible WSU victory.

– USC's corners are preparing for a tough test against Connor Halliday and WSU's offense.

– A Trojans running back looks forward to his first home game.

– USC, quarterback, etc.

Here's a preview of the game from ESPN:
