USC senior LB Porter Gustin will sit out the first half of Friday's game against Washington State as punishment for his targeting ejection in the second half of last weekend's loss to Texas.
Just a friendly reminder in case you tune into our first bit of Pac-12 After Dark action on Friday and are left wondering why Gustin's not on the field. Gustin was ejected last Saturday after leveling Sam Ehlinger with a big hit which knocked the quarterback's helmet off. The hit itself did not look particularly egregious in terms of targeting, and frankly, if a helmet is being worn properly, it shouldn't be able to fly off at all. Regardless, Gustin's out for a half. Look for redshirt freshman Hunter Echols to see an extended run against the Cougars as the team tries to cover for the temporary absence of its senior leader. Through three games, he has registered 15 tackles (5.5 for loss), four sacks and one pass defensed. Sep 21 - 3:56 PM
