SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael will likely miss several games with a knee injury, but former starter Kevin Lopina may be back in time to lead the Cougars against No. 6 Southern Cal on Saturday. Lobbestael is the former third-stringer who became a starter after Lopina and Gary Rogers were injured in the Portland State game. Rogers is out for the season. Lopina, who suffered a broken bone in his back in that Sept. 20 game, practiced with the team on Sunday.
