USC lost more than a game and its perfect season in Week 5. During Friday night’s loss to Washington State, Viane Talamaivao went down with what at the time looked to be an upper-body injury. This week, further evaluation revealed that the starting right guard sustained a torn pectoral muscle, ending the senior’s season. Not only that, but, because the injury came in the Trojans’ fifth game, it ends Talamaivao’s collegiate playing career as well as he won’t be eligible for a medical hardship waiver that would’ve given him another season.
