Washington is looking like one of the best teams in the country and has the offense and defense to contend for a national title. USC has played better than they did to start the season, but will be on the road for this game. The Washington offense is very powerful and the defense is only giving up 15.8 points per game. Washington is simply the better team here and I like them to run away late with this one.
