The Beavers can mathematically eliminate USC from the Rose Bowl hunt with a victory on Saturday. All scenarios which would allow the Trojans to go to the Rose Bowl this year involve the Beavers losing to WSU on Saturday. Thus, a Beaver victory ends the USC streak in the Rose Bowl and/or any BCS bowl.
In a game where the Beavers are searching for a spark to get up for a game where the opponents are so weak that TV will not cover the game, eliminating USC is a great goal. The Beavers will have all Trojan-haters on their side for this effort.
Go Beavers! Eliminate the Trojans!
