The USC Trojans will travel to Corvallis to take on the Oregon State Beavers this Saturday night on the Pac 12 Network. USC comes into this one as the five-point favorites on the road, with the total opening at 70.5.
HISTORY: USC and Oregon State have provided a few classics over the years. These two pacific programs faced off in every season from 1924-2010, and Trojans lead the all-time series 63-12, despite falling at home to the Bevers last seasn by 18.
The Lincoln Riley era began on a strong note with a win over Rice at the Coliseum. The Trojans exploded for 66 points, covering the massive 32-point margin along the way. Southern Cal had a tall task to open Pac-12 play against Stanford, and they came through with a victory.
Last weekend, USC defeated in-state foe Fresno State, 45-17, covering the tall 11-point road spread.
Caleb Williams came over with Coach Riley, and he did not disappoint in his debut. The former OU QB completed 86% of his passes and tossed a pair of touchdowns in the opener against Rice, than followed it up with an even sharper performance against Stanford.
Williams threw for 341 yards and four scores in his first taste of Pac 12 action, raising his season totals to 590 passing yards and six touchdowns.
After Williams led the team in rushing against Rice, Travis Dye had a huge game against Stanford. The Oregon transfer turned 15 touches into 124 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown run. Former Stanford back Austin Jones compliments him in the backfield, and he scored twice in the win over RIce.
Tahj Washington and Jordan Addison are going to give USC one of their best wideout tandems in recent memory. Washington has recorded back-to-back 600-yard seasona, while Addison came over from Pittsburgh after having one of the most prolific seasons in college football history (93/1479/17).
Addison picked right up where he left off, scoring twice against Rice, then following it up with a seven-catch, 172-yard, two-score performance in the win over Stanford. OU transfer Mario Williams’ rapport with Caleb Williams was on display as well, as he added four catches and 74 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown as well.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State has jumped out to a 3-0 start, that includes three quaity non-conference wins. The Beavers opened the season as home underdogs against Boise, and they came away winners, 34-17. They traveled to Fresno to take on the Bulldogs the following Saturday, and covered as one-point favorites on the road.
Last weekend, Oregon State demolished FCS-power Montana State, 68-28, laughing at the 15-point spread.
Chance Nolan has performed well through the first three weeks of the season. The junior quarterback game-manged both wins over Boise and Fresno State, and he starred last week, tossing for four touchdowns, while adding another on the ground.
Nolan is up to 746 passing yards with seven touchdowns to two interceptions on the season.
Deshaun Fenwick leads the team in rushing after coming over from South Carolina last season. The veteran back has scored in all three games this season and he leads the Beavers with 204 yards thus far.
Tre’shaun Harrison has grown in Nolan’s favorite target early, leading the team in receptions (16) and yards (219). Luke Musgrave is one of the best tight ends in the Pac 12, and he’s set to return for this bout after catching 11 passes for 169 yards and a score through two games.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Final Analysis:
What we have here is a possible Pac-12 Championship preview. Southern California is back and thriving under Lincoln Riley. We haven’t seen this version of SC in so long, it’s kind of hard to believe it’s back. Meanwhile, Oregon State looks as good as any team in the conference not named USC. The Beavers will have the sweet advantage of home field, and with a bit more points favored their way, they’d be in a really appealing spot as home underdogs. At five-point favorites, we love the Trojans coming out and flexing their muscles here.
Take Southern Cal’s spread Saturday night for this Pac=12 battle.
