Trojan Question Marks
We asked: Will a wide receiver catch more than three passes in this game?
We Said: No apparent problem here.
Chauncey Washington turned in an excellent game.
Surprise! Keith Rivers picked up the slack: 14 tackles (5 assisted). When Cushing and Matthews were able to play, they contributed significantly.
We said: The secondary needs to tighten down the short passing game.
During the game, Cary Harris fell in the endzone and injured his shoulder. The cornerback situation will be addressed in practice this week.
Accomplished. Brink impressively led the Cougars to two scores. He was largely ineffective otherwise.
We said: Slowing down or getting in Michael Bumpus' face is a must. Bumpus is a talented receiver who caught 60 passes last season.
Accomplished. Bumpus had three receptions for 31 yards and one touchdown.
We said: If the Trojans play a turnover free game then they are almost guaranteed to be victorious at the Coliseum.
Done (mostly). The Trojans had one fumble (recovered) and two interceptions.
