Since the end of last season, I’ve had this game as a win on the USC schedule.
Utah’s defense lost nine starters. It lost its quarterback and tailback.
Even worse for the Utes, this is their first game of the season.
But guess what, I’m tired of picking a team that is a reflection of their coach. And I’m tired of defensive coaches who have shown nothing in two games.
So I might be wrong with my pick, but I can live with myself more by picking Utah because they get more out of less.
So I’m going with Utah 31-30.
