LOS ANGELES — The 25th ranked Washington State Cougars fall short in overtime against USC on the road 81-77 Friday night, their third overtime game already this season.

The Cougars trailed by ten points in the final minutes of the game, but rallied to tie things up with under six seconds to go to force overtime.
