When USC plays Washington State at the Coliseum on Saturday, the Trojans will face one of the top passing attacks in the conference. But it won't be quite the offense they expected to see. Washington State's quarterback, sophomore Jason Gesser, broke his leg in the second quarter of a 27-24 overtime loss to Oregon last week. Up to that point, Gesser was leading the Pacific 10 Conference in passing yardage and efficiency. "He is obviously crushed," Washington State Coach Mike Price said.

It was your ankle, one person after another offered. Your coach leaving for Alabama, then sticking around for the Rose Bowl, someone said. Maybe that cold you've been nursing, another suggested. No, no, and no again, Jason Gesser said. "We just killed ourselves the whole game." The golden boy who has played through cracked and dislocated ribs and a severely sprained ankle during his Washington State career came up empty in the final -- and biggest -- game.

Jason Gesser has more than an ankle sprain, which should give UCLA a greater chance to win its regular-season finale Dec. 7. The Washington State quarterback is among the nation's most dangerous players when sound. But his ability to scramble will be severely compromised -- if he is able to play. "Ligaments are messed up in my ankle," Gesser said. "It's a high ankle sprain combined with something else. I really don't know.

It appears that time off has helped Washington State quarterback Jason Gesser recover from a sprained ankle. The senior looked considerably more mobile during Thursday's practice at the Coliseum than he had in the regular-season finale against UCLA. Gesser suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Cougars' 29-26 triple-overtime loss to Washington on Nov. 23.

Washington State Coach Mike Price didn't dare keep Jason Gesser from playing Saturday, even if the quarterback did have a dislocated rib. After a slow start, Gesser seemed like his old self, passing for 431 yards and four touchdowns as No. 16 Washington State rallied to defeat California, 48-38, in the Pacific 10 Conference opener for both teams. "The guy is tough as steel," Price said. "He wasn't going to let me make any other decision.

The Punch. The Call. The Ankle. The Game. They could be remembered as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse for Washington State. The Punch threatened team unity, but a swift and creative response by Coach Mike Price averted a disaster. The Call became a convenient scapegoat for a meltdown against a rival, and its effect lingers because Price's response was something less than swift and creative.

Five players received invitations to Saturday's Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York and Washington State quarterback Jason Gesser was not one of them. The knocks against Gesser, apparently, are: * He went 10-2 for the No. 7 team in the nation. * He beat UCLA last Saturday to clinch a Rose Bowl bid playing on a right ankle so badly sprained he could hardly walk. He had to take painkillers to take the edge off.
