ESPN’s FPI formula projects every year how many games teams will win. FPI stands for football power index.
The 2018 projections give USC a 25 percent chance of repeating as Pac-12 champions and projected the Trojans to win 8.7 games.
Right now, I will take the under. Especially if USC starts the season 1-2.
But it’s only April. Maybe that will change in August when everyone is slobbering over JT Daniels.
Let’s see how the FPI fared last season in a real conference (The SEC):
Ole Miss 6.4-5.6/6-6
Miss St 6.1-6/9-4
