Grading the cougars: D-
With Lopina back from injury, he wasn’t asked to do much but had an inexplicable interception.
Running backs: D
Lack of holes meant lack of yardage, but the fumble didn’t help.
Maybe this should be an incomplete, because there wasn’t much on which to base a grade.
Offensive line: D-
It’s hard to downgrade a group that’s beat up and outmanned.
Defensive line: F
No pressure from the outside and no resistance to the running game inside.
The number of times they were on the ground was hard to enumerate.
Defensive backs: D
Receivers were running free all game, but a big part of that was the lack of pressure.
This wasn’t as bad as Oregon State in that USC is a much better team.
Special teams: B
Actually, other than the punt team, not much to grade here.
