The USC Trojans and Oregon State Beavers meet Saturday in week 4 college football action at Reser Stadium. The USC Trojans look for their second 4-0 start in the last 3 years. The Oregon State Beavers look for their first 4-0 start since the 2012 season.

The USC Trojans have split their last 6 road games. Caleb Williams is completing 74.4 percent of his passes for 874 yards, 8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Jordan Addison and Mario Williams have combined for 489 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while Tahj Washington has 5 receptions.

The Oregon State Beavers haven’t lost a home game since December 2020. Chance Nolan is completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 746 yards, 7 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Tre’Shaun Harrison and Anthony Gould have combined for 407 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Luke Musgrave has 11 receptions. The Oregon State Beavers ground game is averaging 192.3 yards per contest, and Deshaun Fenwick leads the way with 204 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Trojans are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Beavers are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Trojans last 8 conference games. The under is 4-1 in Beavers last 5 home games. The Trojans are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Oregon State. The underdog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

Neither of these defenses have been that impressive up to this point. The USC Trojans are 103rd against the run, while the Oregon State Beavers are below average defensively across the board, which includes being 73rd in scoring defense. USC has topped 40 points in all 3 games this season, while Oregon State is 12th in scoring offense. Get your popcorn ready as there's going to be some fireworks here. High total, but I'm still grabbing the over. Give me the over in this intriguing Pac-12 showdown.
