The Oregon State football team wrapped up the week of practice for No. 4 Southern California on Thursday. The offensive workout looked a little sluggish, but coach Mike Riley felt it went well.
“It was good work today,” he said. “There was a lot of enthusiasum. We got a good week of practice. That’s all we can say about it. Now we have to go play.”
The weekly tradition of pumping crowd noise in on the last workout of the week continued, but it was a little louder than usual. The L.A. Memorial Coliseum will have more than 93,000 inside.
Backup split end Geno Munoz has a hip-flexor injury and he may not make the trip to Southern California, Riley said. Aaron Nichols, who’s the No. 3 slot back, will back up Damola Adeniji at split end.
Reserve offensive guard Colin Lyons went down with a knee injury this week. He had an MRI, and the severity isn’t known, yet.
Freshman receiver Micah Hatfield will be on crutches for six week from his broken leg suffered last week. His rehab will be long-term, Riley said.
