All week long I’ve been pretty cautious about my optimism for this game, but what the heck, at least until 7 tonight I’m gonna get excited for this thing. Therefore, if you thought USC was big… we could really use an upset like this. I mean after all they play the game for a reason!
Oregon’s fast pace can’t be replicated in practice, so I’m interested to see how we keep up against these guys. TACKLING will be KEY! There’s very little doubt that they will score points, but can we match them?
It would be so clutch if we don’t turn the ball over this game and really grind out some 12-15 play drives to score touchdowns and put some pressure on early. Would also be clutch if the secondary could force the first Mariota turnover of the season.

Not sure what else to say that hasn’t already been said! The time has come for Washington State to shock the world for a second time.
