It has been awhile, but USC will finally get a look at - and a test against - improved Washington State in a Pac-12 Conference opener Saturday at the Coliseum. Because of Pac-12 scheduling rotations, USC is playing the Cougars for the first time in three years. And Washington State under pass-happy second-year Coach Mike Leach appears to be a different program than it was under former coach Paul Wulff . In 2010, USC defeated the undermanned Cougars, 50-16, at Pullman, Wash.

UCLA 44, Washington State36 (final) Now I feel bad about saying Washington State had little talent. That was a cheap shot born of frustration because of undisciplined play by both sides and officiating that was losing control of the game. The Cougars do have some talent, and it's giving the kind of effort that will probably save the team from a post-game Mike Leach rant. Note: we did say probably. At the end it was a one possession game. The Cougars passed for 456 yards and outgained UCLA in total offense by 193 yards.
