As many of you know both head coaches were formerly offensive coordinators under Pete Carrol at USC. Kiffin parted his ways with Pete took when he took the head coaching job for the Oakland Raiders and became one of the youngest head coaches ever in the NFL. Sarkissian had an opportunity to become the head coach at Washington try and turnaround a Washington program that has been struggling severely and underachieving.
3 years later Pete Carrol left to the NFL and Kiffin left Tennessee after one year and became the new USC head coach. Sarkissian has been turning around the program with there first huge bowl win in 9 years over Nebraska . Coach Kiffin on the other hand was handed a severely sanctioned USC team who is inneligible for post season play. As of late the Huskies have seemed to have the Trojans number winning the last two games under Coach Sark. The coaches have maintain a good friendship and have been joking around during press conferences this week about each other. This week they will be facing off in the coliseum on Saturday.
USC’s Matt Barkley and Washington’s Keith Price have proved all year long and are premier quarterbacks in the country. This is Price’s first year as a starter and has proven himself with big numbers and a 6-3 record. The quarterbacks are competing against each other to prove who is the best quarterback in the conference behind Andrew Luck from Stanford. As of Late Barkley has been outstanding and Price has done solid but has lost two games recently in tough loses to Stanford and Oregon. This game should answer a lot of questions for both teams and give a preview of how the Trojans will match up next week against Oregon next week
Tomorrow i will give the game preview and Friday i will be posting the keys to the game for the trojans offense and defense so stay tuned..
