Their last head to head meeting at LA Coliseum the final score read USC 23 and Utah 14 with the game ending well under the total of 51 points. The Utah Utes are solid on their offensive and defensive lines so I expect the team to utilize a ball control and running game plan on Saturday. They don’t have enough speed to turn this into a fast paced up tempo game but they do have the beef on their offensive line to grind away and turn this into a field position game based on the amount of injuries to the playmakers on the USC side. Another reason for this game going under has been the play of Utes quarterback Travis Wilson He has been dealing with a hand injury but expects to be in the lineup for Saturday’s game with the Trojans. The problem is Wilson has been prone to making mistakes as he is completing 60% of his throws with 14 touchdowns but 12 interceptions. I don’t expect Utah to throw too much downfield because of the speed in the Trojans secondary. They may set up passing plays after a series of runs which is OK because the pure volume of running plays will shorten up this game and aid the game going under the total. USC is dealing with scholarship reductions and its impacting their offense. They were stagnant last week as they put up 10 points in a loss at Notre Dame as they don’t have the depth to replace injuries to their receivers.
