The Battle of Los Angeles will be this week as the USC Trojans take on crosstown rival UCLA Bruins in a Pac-12 South showdown.
The Trojans have been surging as of late, while the Bruins are still keeping hopes alive for bowl eligibility.
Southern California has been playing as well as any team in the country over the last few weeks after a very slow start. They have won six games in a row and are currently in 2nd place in the South.
On the other hand, UCLA has struggled during that period but got a win over Oregon State 34-28 at home last week.
The 13th ranked Trojans started out the season in very poor fashion, losing three of their first four games and seeming to be out of the running early for the Pac-12 Championship.
However, they have been on a tear as of late and won their last six games. Last week they knocked of the then 4th ranked Washington Huskies on the road 26-13.
Southern Cal is led by a dynamic freshman quarterback in Sam Darnold. On the year, Darnold has thrown for 2,161 yards with 22 touchdowns and only six interceptions.
Running back Ronald Jones II leads the ground game with 772 yards rushing and eight touchdowns.
They rank 53rd in scoring offense with 31.4 points per game and 32nd in scoring defense, allowing 22.5 points per game.
The Bruins had a promising start to the season, winning three of their first five games, but things fell apart after that. They lost six games in a row, many by blowout scores, and lost any hope of competing in the conference.
They won their first game in weeks against the Oregon State Beavers last week and can still make a bowl game if they win out.
UCLA has the nation’s 16th ranked passing attack, now led by sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen after he took over mid-season. Rosen has thrown for 1,915 yards with 10 touchdowns and five picks.
They are tied for 74th in FBS in scoring offense with 27.5 points per game and tied for 49th in scoring D, allowing 25.8.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Prediction
There is not a team in the nation that would want to play the Trojans right now. They have been on a tear and have the talent to compete with anyone.
They also have a lot more to play for and need to win out to keep their chances alive of playing for the Pac-12 title.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: USC -10.5
The Bruins also have something to play for, as they need to win out to make a bowl game. They have more talent than their 4-6 record indicates but will not be able to fend off the Trojans this week.
