Both teams now have 4-4 records . but when they meet this afternoon ' at 1:30 at the Coliseum, it will be the Cougars- who still have a shot at the , Rose Bowl, not the Trojans.

USC coach John McKay realizes that the norma! roles for the Trojans and Cougars have been reversed this season, one of the wildest ever in the Pacific 8. Great Incentive "They're a much, much better team than they were last year," McKay says, "and they have tremem-dous incentive now because they can see that if they don't lose they'll go to the bowl." USC will be facing the conference's most productive total and rushing offenses today and its No. 1 runner. The Cougars' Veer T, triple-option attack has gained 388.4 yards per game in total offense (seven more than USC, which is third in the, league), 274.5 in rushing offense (65 more than USC, which is second) and tailback Bernard Jackson has . rushed for 1,046 yards (130.8 per game).

In the wake of last week's ; frustrating defeat to Washington,- the Bruin coach has been the target of blistering criticism, from fans, and ' alumni. . . Much. of it has had to do with the offense, which coughed and , sputtered four time's in scoring, territory when the Bruins got to the 6, 14, 18 and 17-yard lines. . , ; v ,, ' Rodgers is also . being t second-guessed for his choice of aj quarter-' back Scott Henderson, ah. option specialist, over Mike ' Floresj ' the "forgotten man" who can pass with proficiency but lacks mobility. ; Rodgers argues that a ground-oriented attack with Henderson at th controls is the only way to go especially against Stanford, the -Pacific S's strong defensive team.
