Washington Gets Defensive, Holds On To Beat No. 17 USC 17-12
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Myles Gaskin ran for 134 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown, and Washington shut down No. 17 Southern California's high-powered offense throughout a 17-12 victory over the Trojans on Thursday night.
Receiver Marvin Hall threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Joshua Perkins on a trick play early in the second half for the Huskies (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12), who beat former coach Steve Sarkisian in a defense-dominated meeting. Washington beat a ranked team for the first time under second-year coach Chris Petersen.
Cody Kessler had two interceptions while passing for just 156 yards on a disastrous night for the Trojans (3-2, 1-2), the popular preseason pick to win the conference.
Instead, USC couldn't score a touchdown until Ronald Jones II's short run with 12:02 to play.
