You might think the USC quarterback derby is closer than ever after yesterday’s practice, where JT Daniels had an uneven day at best.
But I would just say this: When Jack Sears had a strong performance against Arizona State, several team captains went to Clay Helton and asked for Sears to start the following week against Oregon State.
Helton, according to sources, said his hands were tied. Daniels regained his starting position against Oregon State.
Remember that when trying to figure out who will start.
- The Action Network, a sports betting and analytics site, has computed how many points the home field is worth to college teams.
USC is right about in the middle at No. 65 with a 2.32 point betting advantage at home.
Arizona State has the second-greatest home-field betting advantage in the country at 3.74 points per game (behind UAB’s 4.23) Washington State is No. 14 at 3.218 while Stanford is 17th at 3.18. Utah is 26th at 2.922 Washington is 31st at 2.816 Cal is no. 45 at 2.658
That means half the Pac 12 is in the top half of the bracket
Arizona is No. 61 at 2.416 Oregon is surprisingly low at No. 77 at 2.18 UCLA is No. 100 at 1.822 Oregon State is at No. 105 at 1.592
