Analysis: USC uses Air Raid avalanche to build five-touchdown lead, bury Washington State 38-13

LOS ANGELES – Losing to No. 16 USC on the road may have been a predictable outcome for a Washington State team that hadn’t played a game in 22 days, one that spent more than a week practicing without its starting quarterback as he recovered from COVID-19 and one missing six players whose names were printed on the defensive depth chart before a Nov. 14 meeting with Oregon.

Highlights: USC 38, Washington State 13

No. 20 USC football downs Washington State 38-13 on Sunday, Dec. 6 to move to 4-0 on the season and remain atop of the Pac-12 South standings. In the first quarter, quarterback Kedon Slovis connected with wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown in the end-zone four times to help the Trojans jump out to an early 28-0 lead. Slovis threw for five first-half touchdowns against the Cougars; most for a USC quarterback since Cody Kessler had five in the first half vs Notre Dame in 2014. Washington State falls to 1-2 on the season with the road loss. – Pac-12 Networks

Sunday’s game between Washington State, USC to feature contrasting spread offenses in run-and-shoot, Air Raid

Even though the Pac-12 moved Sunday's game between Washington State and USC into a time slot that shouldn't interfere too directly with the NFL schedule, the cross-divisional matchup may not attract the casual football fan the same way it did in 2017 and 2018 – both prime-time Friday matchups that collected strong ratings and supplied non-partisan viewers with exciting finishes.
