The Arizona Wildcats and USC Trojans face off on Saturday in a Pac-12 college football showdown at L.A. Memorial Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in November, USC won 34-30.
The Arizona Wildcats have been terrible this season sitting with an 0-7 record but they almost got their first win of the season in the last game. In the last game they were outscored 14-0 in the 4th quarter, and that led to the five-point defeat. Arizona is averaging 14.3 points while the defense is giving up 30.4 points per game. In the last game Will Plummer completed 13 of his 20 passes for 62 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions. On the season, Plummer has thrown for 442 yards, two touchdowns, and five interceptions. In this game, it’s unclear who is going to get the start.
On the other side of this matchup is the USC Trojans who sit with a 3-4 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against Notre Dame, the offense could only manage 16 points, and that led to the defeat. USC is averaging 29.9 points while the defense is giving up 27.9 points per game. Under center for USC is Kedon Slovis who has thrown for 1,818 yards, nine touchdowns, and six interceptions. Keantay Ingram has been the top back rushing for 557 yards and four touchdowns. This is a game that USC needs to win big or there will be a lot of pushback from the fan base.
Arizona is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games in October. USC is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. Arizona is 1-4 against the spread in their last five meetings against USC.
USC has had some struggles this season, but this is a terrible Arizona team, and their offense is going to have issues moving the ball. USC is going to want to make a statement with this game, and this game is going to get ugly early. Back USC to cover the spread.
