CFB Week 5 in L.A. TV market: Friday night lights from Pullman, Rose Bowl prime time Saturday

Let’s make this clean and simple:

== From CougCenter.com of SB Nation under the headline: “The Monday After: Forget Nevada – it’s time for USC … The No. 5 Trojans are coming to town on Friday. Get jacked”
This is the weekend we’ve had circled on our calendars since the schedule came out months ago. We knew the USC Trojans would begin the season highly ranked. We knew WSU could win its first four games. Consequently, we knew that if both teams did what they were supposed to do in the first month, this would be a clash between a pair of ranked opponents in a Friday primetime matchup with the entire nation watching on the country’s premier sports network.
We knew that this could be huge. And now, it is. …
“You know when the last time was that it was still September and a ranked WSU team hosted another ranked squad? 1989! Before that? 1952!”|
Settle down, guys …
