OK, where do I begin?
My main issue is trusting Utah. The Utes flatter to deceive. As much as I like Cameron Rising, two plays I can’t forget are interceptions against Florida and UCLA.
The Utes tend to fold with the pressure on them. But then again, there’s a lot less pressure with two losses.
On the other hand, do I trust USC? The offense could barely handle the noise of 26,000 at Oregon State. Tonight will be another level. And the defense is going to have to stop the run. Will USC’s turnover magic continue? The Trojans haven’t lost a fumble all season.
Here’s my pick: Utah 27, USC 24.
