The USC Trojans will play the UCLA Bruins in a PAC-12 Game on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The USC Trojans are 9-1 (7-1) this season after they defeated Colorado by a score of 55-17 in their last game. USC gained 531 total yards and went 9-12 on third down attempts in the win. The USC offense is averaging 42.4 points per game with 316.9 passing yards per game and 192.5 rushing yards per game. Caleb Williams has thrown for 3,010 yards, 31 touchdowns, and two interceptions, while also rushing for 283 yards and six touchdowns for the Trojans this season. Austin Jones has rushed for 335 yards and three touchdowns, while Jordan Addison has caught 40 passes for 587 yards and seven scores for USC. The USC defense is giving up 24.4 points per game and 394.2 yards per game.

The UCLA Bruins are 8-2 (5-2) this season after they lost to Arizona by a score of 34-28 in their last game. UCLA out gained Arizona by a total of 465-436, but turned the ball over one time and added three turnovers on downs in the loss. The UCLA offense is averaging 39.5 points per game with 264 passing yards per game and 240.1 rushing yards per game. Dorian Thompson-Robinson has thrown for 2,385 yards, 20 touchdowns, and four interceptions, while also rushing for 463 yards and seven touchdowns for the Bruins this season. Zach Charbonnet has rushed for 1,145 yards and 13 scores, while Jake Bobo has caught 43 passes for 651 yards and six touchdowns for UCLA. The UCLA defense is allowing 26.4 points per game and 378.8 yards per game.

USC is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The over is 4-0 in USC’s last 4 games. UCLA is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 6-2 in UCLA’s last 8 games. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

This should be a great game between two very good offenses and two below average defenses. UCLA got caught looking ahead last week and lost to an average Arizona team at home. UCLA has played well at home for most of this season, but they are going to have trouble stopping USC. I like the over in this game.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
