A look at USC/Washington by the numbers…

----Two----
It will be the second consecutive year where the Trojans and Huskies meet in the L.A. Coliseum. The previous time USC has hosted Washington in consecutive years was 1930-31, 1933-34-35 and 1988-89. Two also stands for the number of consecutive times in which Washington has had USC's number, a 13-16 loss in Washington in 2009 and a 31-32 loss at home last season.

----25----
The number of touchdown passes Washington sophomore quarterback Keith Price has, ranking 14th in the nation in pass efficiency. He also goes into UW history, tied for second with most touchdown passes by a quarterback in a season.

----33----
The number of first timers for the Trojans. Of the 69 players that have seen time in 2011, 33 of them have played their first down in cardinal and gold.

----1944----
The only time these two teams have faced one another in the Rose Bowl. Because of wartime restrictions on travel, it was the only Rose Bowl game that was not intersectional. USC won 29-0 that year.

----Four----
The number of records USC quarterback Matt Barkley has set this season. He had a record 34 completions against Minnesota, a record 468 passing yards for a single game, a high of six touchdown passes for a quarterback in a game (against Colorado) and a record for total offense, when Barkley put up 470 yards versus Arizona.

The average number of yards per kickoff return for Washington's Kevin Smith. Smith is ranked 23rd in this nation in this category.

----91.7----
Completing 33 of 36 scoring attempts in the red zone is Washington, at a percentage of 91.7, second in the Pac-12 conference. USC, on the other hand, is 10th in the category, scoring just 76.3 percent of the time.

----81----
Huskies inside linebacker Cort Dennison has a whopping 81 total tackles through nine games. The senior is averaging a Pac-12 conference high of nine tackles per game.
