I think USC stops the run, making the Utes rely on the pass, and thus picking up
a couple of interceptions. The end result is a 38-31 win for the Trojans. Utes
come close, but no cigar. I agree with some of the previous posters, this game
is crucial for the Utes. This will determine what level of bowl they go to. I
admit I have to eat some crow, I did not anticipate them going to a bowl at all
this year, but they have proved me wrong. I wish them the best of luck, but I
believe the Trojans will win.
It;s great having a running game - it would be even better if it were
complemented by a passing game, but I can see why Christensen is hesitent to
throw when we have route runners and not receivers.

Booker will get somewhere between 90-125 yards this game on around 35 carries.
The Utes passing game though is the problem. Utes are going to have to throw
the ball and for more than a couple yards or more.
8Pm kickoff should be around 57 degrees and falling, depending if Sundays storm
starts moving in by then. I see a USC unit not too deep on defense getting tired
and sloppy in the 2nd half allowing Booker to do his thing. Receivers just catch
the ball and it will be a good game.Go Utes!
Utes has to play smart.Utes has to be patient.4, 5 yard rushes.5, 10 yd passes.Defense has to be at its top.Special team needs to
