The Washington Huskies tried to give USC the game, they really did.

Sure, the Huskies did enough to come away with the 17-12 victory. They controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage, managed to scrape together 300 yards of offense and pulled off the usual Chris Petersen trick play early in the third quarter to help jump out to their first lead of the game.

But in the end, this game was on a platter for the Trojans to take and they just couldn’t do it. Call it being off, call it being out of synch, call it a series of questionable play calls when it came to running the football, this was definitely a missed opportunity for the cardinal and gold.
