The Utah Utes and the USC Trojans will match up on the college football circuit on Friday.
Utah comes in here at a nice 3-0 on the season so far. The Utes beat BYU 30-13 in the opener, then followed that up with wins over Northern Illinois 35-17 and Idaho State 31-0.
In the Week 3 victory, Utah QB Tyler Huntley posted 282 yards with three touchdowns, and Zack Moss logged 106 yards and a TD on the ground. Bryan Thompson led the Utah receivers with 105 yards and two scores.
Over on the USC side, they’re 2-1 this season following two opening wins over Fresno State and Stanford, then an OT loss to BYU 30-27 this past weekend.
In the BYU game, Trojans QB Kedon Slovis posted 281 years with two touchdowns and three picks, while Vave Malepeai rushed for 96 yards and a score. Michael Pittman was tops in receiving with nine grabs for 95 yards and a TD.
The Utes are 5-1 ATS in their last six Friday games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight conference games. Utah is 12-5 ATS in their last 17 road games and 0-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Trojans are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 after an ATS loss and 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 overall. USC is 2-8 in their last 10 in September and 0-6 ATS in their last six Friday games.
Utah has been chugging along nicely this year, but this week will mark a step up in competition for them and we’ll get to see exactly what they’re made of. So far everything looks pretty balanced for the Utes.
USC will be a stout opponent however, and they should be able to put up some points here. I’m going to go with the Utes to eke out a cover but it should be a very close game.
