SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Southern California came away frustrated from its latest loss but coach Steve Sarkisian expects his players to display their resilience come Saturday's matchup with Washington State.
"This team won't get knocked down and stay down," said Sarkisian, whose Trojans fell 24-21 at Utah last weekend. "I expect us to come out in a real good frame of mind Saturday."
Southern California (5-3, 4-2 Pac-12) is one win away from postseason eligibility heading to Washington State (2-6, 1-4). And while the Cougars have struggled all season, Sarkisian doesn't expect an easy outing in Pullman.
