- With the Trojans approaching their bye week, it's time to take a glance forward at what awaits USC on the rest of the 2012 regular-season schedule. Oct. 4
Record: 2-2, 0-1 Pac-12
Rushing defense:111.2 yards per game (No. 3 Pac-12, No. 27 overall)
Total offense: 298.2 yards per game (No. 12 Pac-12, No. 112 overall)
Notes: Picked to finish second in the South Division in the Pac-12 preseason poll, Utah hasn't lived up to expectations and is currently reeling after a 37-7 blasting at the hands of Arizona State. With starting quarterback Jordan Wynn going down with a career-ending shoulder injury in Week 2, the Jon Hays-led Utes offense has struggled. The defense is certainly formidable, though, headlined by tackle Star Lotulelei, a projected top-10 pick in the 2013 NFL draft.Oct. 13[+] EnlargeJonathan Ferrey/Getty ImagesHeisman candidate De'Anthony Thomas and the Oregon Ducks visit USC on Nov. 3.
At Washington Record: 2-1, 0-0 Pac-12
Pass defense: 167 yards per game (No. 2 Pac-12, No. 14 overall)
Pass offense: 199.7 yards per game (No. 11 Pac-12, No. 96 overall)
Notes: It's been an up-and-down season for Steve Sarkisian's Washington Huskies. After struggling in Week 1 to eke out a 21-12 victory over San Diego State, the Huskies were handled easily, 41-3, by an LSU squad that dominated them in every phase of the game. The Huskies finally got back on track in their last contest with a 52-13 victory, but it was against less-than-stellar competition in Portland State. The Huskies need more consistency from their offense, and in particular from quarterback Keith Price whose pass efficiency rating sits at just 126.9, second-to-last in the conference.
