I’m backing USC here. Stanford’s put up some solid showings as of late, but USC at home has just been on a different level, especially offensively, putting up 77+ in four straight home games. I just don’t feel like Stanford will be able to keep up with USC for a full 40 minutes, and we’re not being asked to lay anything too crazy here. Give me USC laying the points.
