Wide receiver Chris McFoy is in street clothes with a left shoulder injury along with linebacker Luthur Brown, who is on crutches.
UPDATE: McFoy bruised his left shoulder and Brown strained his hamstring. No announcements yet on how long they will be out. Emmanuel Moody sprained his ankle but said he was OK.
Among the recruits Washington State brought to the game was La Canada High tailback LaVelle Peterson, who rushed for a school-record 345 yards and five touchdowns last week. The Cougars’ starting tailback, Dwight Tardy, is also from Southern California and attended St. Paul High.
Outside my hotel room window, the Trojans are conducting a walk-through in the parking lot, giving a shock to a couple people walking by and anyone driving into the WinCoFoods 24-hour market which is across the street.
Freshman safety Taylor Mays said he feels comfortable enough after two starts that games are not his biggest worry.
“I feel like tomorrows practice will be harder than Saturdays game, Mays said.
Mays also said he likes playing the “center field” spot in the Trojans’ secondary.
“Im not feeling a lot of pressure but I know if I make a mistake its a touchdown,” he said.
