SEATTLE -- Adoree Jackson sprinted into the purple end zone, planted his feet and flipped backward , perfectly sticking the landing.Southern California celebrated its biggest victory of the season with style and flash Saturday night.Sam Darnold threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns and USC upset No. 4 Washington 26-13 on Saturday night, snapping the Huskies 12-game winning streak and damaging their College Football Playoff hopes.Darnold was outstanding against one of the top defenses in the Pac-12, showing why USC has surged since he became the starter. Darnolds lofted pass over linebacker D.J. Beavers and into the arms of tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe for an 8-yard touchdown strike in the opening moments of the fourth quarter gave USC an 11-point lead that Washington (9-1, 6-1 Pac-12, No. 4 CFP) couldnt overcome.To play that game, at this age, in that atmosphere? Unbelievable, USC coach Clay Helton said.Ronald Jones II added 93 yards rushing and a touchdown. USC (7-3, 6-2, No. 20 CFP) won its sixth straight and should get back into the AP Top 25 while keeping alive its hopes of winning the Pac-12 South.Washington coach Chris Petersen cautioned all week that USC was back to looking like the most talented team in the Pac-12 and he was proved correct. Darnold flustered Washingtons defense by keeping plays alive with his feet and found gaps in the Huskies secondary that have been difficult for others to find.If guys are looking down the horizon, youre going to get hit right between the eyes, Petersen said. Theres too many good players and coaches in this league. ... I think we played a good team tonight.Darreus Rogers had six catches for 84 yards and a touchdown, while Imatorbhebhe added five catches for 78 yards. Washington lost starting middle linebacker Azeem Victor in the second quarter to a lower right leg injury that required an air cast and a cart to take the Huskies leading tackler off the field. His absence was felt in the pass game where USC exploited the middle of the field.When you have great players in front of you ... its your job to get them the ball and find the open guy. I thought I did that pretty well tonight, Darnold said.Washington quarterback Jake Browning was 17 of 36 for 259 yards, including a 70-yard TD pass to John Ross where he shook Jackson at the line of scrimmage. Ross finished with eight catches for 154 yards, but the Huskies were held to 17 yards rushing after coming into the week as the Pac-12 leader averaging 231 yards per game.Heres where we find out if were the front-runners that are only playing well when things are going well or are we going to respond and bounce back stronger? Browning said. That will be interesting to see what kind of team are we.When USC went ahead 10-3 on Rogers 13-yard TD catch it was the first time Washington trailed at home since the first quarter of last Novembers Apple Cup against Washington State. The 17-6 halftime lead for the Trojans marked Washingtons first halftime deficit in more than a calendar year. The Huskies last trailed at the break on Nov. 7, 2015, against Utah, a game they lost 34-23.It was the drive just before halftime that put USC in control. Taking over at the 18 with 2:27 left in the half, Darnold completed 4 of 7 passes for 75 yards and capped the drive with Jones 4-yard TD run and an 11-point lead at the break.USC also got a huge play from Jack Jones in the third quarter blocking Cameron Van Winkles 38-yard field goal attempt after Darnold was intercepted for a second time by Washingtons Taylor Rapp.POLL IMPLICATIONSWelcome back to the AP Top 25 , USC. The Trojans were the first team outside the Top 25 last week but certainly will make a significant leap after the impressive win. With rest of the chaos this week, perhaps USC will crack the top 20.The chaos in the top 10 may help Washington also. The Huskies may not be penalized as much because of other top 10 teams losing.THE TAKEAWAYUSC: Jackson didnt have the best night, especially when he was matched up in coverage on Ross. But he came up with two key interceptions, both times using his quickness to break in front of the receivers and grab Brownings pass.Washington: The big plays that have been part of Washingtons success all season were absent. Washington had just three plays of longer than 20 yards: Two by Ross and a 28-yard pass to Chico McClatcher.INJURY REPORTPetersen did not have much of an update after the game on Victors injury. Its another blow to Washingtons defense that is likely to be without defensive end and sack leader Joe Mathis for the rest of the season due to foot surgery.UP NEXTUSC: The Trojans travel across town next Saturday to face rival UCLA at the Rose Bowl.Washington: The Huskies close out their home schedule hosting Arizona State.---More AP college football: and Cheap Nike Roshe Run Store .

Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. Wholesale Nike Roshe Run . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. SEATTLE -- This city is home to grunge rock gods, tech billionaires and a ubiquitous retail giant. Downtown, a King holds court in the summer and a recent Super Bowl champion dominates sports-talk radio in the fall.Surrounded by mountains and water, there is plenty to do in and around the Emerald City, and it does not rain quite as much as its reputation suggests.For Washingtons Chris Petersen, college footballs most unassuming star coach, Seattle is the perfect place to build a powerhouse program on a foundation of well-ordered priorities.While Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Jim Harbaugh and Dabo Swinney could stop traffic in their towns, Petersen can spend a day at the mall or a night out with his wife without drawing so much as a Good luck, coach here.I dont think Chris Petersen minds at all. Other college coaches probably would. I think it fits right to the nature and personality of Petersen that he doesnt have to be the center of attention, said former Washington quarterback and Seattle radio host Brock Huard.Of course, it is only year three for Petersen at U-Dub. If the sixth-ranked Huskies (10-1, 7-1 Pac-12) keep playing as they have this season, Petersen might reach the celebrity status in Seattle currently held by Mariners Cy Young Award winner King Felix Hernandez, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, or Wilsons coach, Pete Carroll -- whether he likes it or not. (He will not).Washington is two victories away from its first Pac-12 championship since 2000 and maybe a spot in the College Football Playoff. Not since Don James was regularly taking the Huskies to Rose Bowls from 1975-92 have Washington fans felt so comfortable with their coach.Petersen, 52, has a runners wiry frame, a just-right wave in his salt-and-pepper hair that would make an anchorman jealous and an aw-shucks demeanor. He loves the water and his office view of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier. He comes across as an effortlessly cool dad.The son of a high school and junior college football coach from Northern California, Petersen did not want to follow in his father Rons footsteps growing up in Yuba City.I would go to his games and I think I would care more about winning and losing more than half the players that I saw on the sidelines, Petersen said recently in his office. And I would tell my Mom, like, there is no way I would coach and let 18 year olds control my happiness.To this day shes like, `Dont complain to me. You knew what you were getting yourself into.Petersen played quarterback at Division II UC Davis, undersized but fast. He was a star at a place where the team shared its locker room with students and faculty.I think theres certainly no sense of entitlement coming out of somewhere like that, Petersen said. We didnt have anything. We had pads and football gear. We didnt have any sweats or shirts or any of that stuff. I think we bought our own cleats.Petersen worked his way up the career ladder carefully and somewhat reluctantly to become head coach at Boise State.Every job Ive taken Ive not wanted to go, but just felt like I need to do this, he said.Petersen helped turn the Broncos into the standard by which all college football overachievers are judged. Boise State went 92-12 in eight seasons under Petersen, winning two Fiesta Bowls and frequently forcing itself into the national championship discussion.No matter how many giants the Broncos slayed, no matter how much attention and praise was heaped on them, Petersen never allowed them to feel as if they had made it. He used a cramped room under Broncos Stadium to get his message across, dispatching players and coaches there for positional meetings and film studyy.ddddddddddddVery much like a dungeon. No heat. Cold. Youd have to roll your TV and your VCR in and out of there, said Montana State coach Jeff Choate, who worked for Petersen for eight years at Boise and Washington. And the point was that youve got to remember where you came from and youve got to have that humble and hungry attitude.Petersen could have left Boise State sooner. Stanford and others came after him.I had left Boise State because I didnt think Chris was ever going to, said Choate, who rejoined Petersen in Seattle in 2014.When Southern California fired Lane Kiffin, USC made a run at Petersen. For reasons that are obvious to anyone who knows him, Petersen passed on the glitz of Los Angeles. USC then hired former Trojans assistant Steve Sarkisian away from Washington. That was the job that made sense to Petersen, and in some ways it has worked out even better than he thought it would.Hands down the thing that I completely underestimated that has been the biggest surprise, the most pleasant surprise of me coming over here is I just blend in, Petersen said. I didnt blend in at all in Boise. Its small. Here its so big. Theres pro sports. Theres everything else. Theres people that dont even know about sports. I appreciate that and I like that.In Seattle, he found a program Sarkisian had revived from its darkest days, including an 0-12 season in 2008. The challenge for Petersen was to move Washington from pretty good back to the top of the Pac-12.The first thing that had to change was the way the players interacted with each other.Theres a saying he says that I like, senior offensive tackle Jake Eldrenkamp said. Its not just about respecting your teammate. A lot of people say you dont have to like him you just have to respect him. But with Coach Pete its youve got to respect him and youve got to like the guy.Petersen and his staff shuffled lockers and meeting seats to move players away from their friends and position groups. Players had to learn the hometowns and high schools of their teammates. The names of siblings and parents.The next step was bringing in more of what became known at Boise State under Petersen as OKGs: Our Kind of Guys. Petersen wants players who live for football, but understand there is more to life.Seventy-five percent of the time hes talking to the team its about your character. What type of person you should be, you want to be, and just doing the right thing all times, linebacker Keishawn Bierria said. Life outside football. Thats really what he talks about.There is much to life outside of football in this part of the Pacific Northwest. Amazon is headquartered in Seattle. Microsoft is in nearby Redmond. Bill Gates lives here and his Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen, owns the Seahawks. Seattles music scene produced Pearl Jam and Nirvana and it is the city that gave the world Starbucks.Petersen can tap into all of what Seattle and the University of Washington provides to mold his OKGs. And when things dont go so well for the Huskies on Saturday, he can always change the subject.How `bout those Seahawks? Im taking all questions about `em, Petersen began his first Monday media availability of the year that followed a loss .It worked for about a minute, but if there is one coach of a top-10 team who could blend in at his own news conference, its Petersen.---More AP college football: and .---Follow AP College Football Writer Ralph D.
