Now onto the News, Rumors, and Commentary…

“We all kind of have that next man up mentality and I think it really showed on Saturday.” Back with the offense, Moss talked about how his day went. We all push each other and I think that just makes us better.” For the past three weeks, Moss has led the USC scout team offense against the Trojan first string defense. So like you said, the team was able to pull out a really good win and the team rallied around Jaxson in a really good way. Though he got just the one snap, it does go down as his college debut and  with Jaxson Dart’s status yet to be disclosed, Moss was back running with the twos after three weeks working with the scout team against the Trojan’s first string defense.”

“Drake [Jackson] had some crazy rushes and the ball has been errant, so really affecting the quarterback is what we’re doing and the numbers will come.” The pass rush statistics were still absent through the first 30 minutes, but with the help of one of the best motivational speeches linebacker Kana’i Mauga said he had heard, coming from interim head coach Donte Williams at halftime, the tide began to turn. The message is to not change anything just continue to focus on the technique and fundamentals and trust it.” The Trojans took a 45-14 victory over Washington State at Martin Stadium in Pullman, but Jackson said the defense was angry about the points they did allow. USC had not recorded a sack in the first two games, but the Trojans’ defensive line coach was pleased with the pass rush. “It was great,” So’oto said after Saturday’s game.”

“I just tried to get up and my neck felt super weak and then try to get back to play but just didn’t feel confident throwing it and different motions. How’s this week been going for you since leaving the game the other day? It’s been good just trying to get my opportunity or get myself ready to play for Saturday as best I can and trying to help my teammates as much as possible. You know, I’m excited for him. He had a great game and honestly, you know, that’s what we expect.”

“Interim head coach Donte Williams did not provide much clarity when asked about the status of the freshman quarterback. “Today was pretty much Kedon [Slovis] and Miller [Moss] and I’m happy to talk about those two.” The interim head coach was also asked whether Dart had any test results return. He just wasn’t here today right now,” Williams said. “Right now, you know, it wasn’t here today,” Williams said.”
