It’s a huge PAC 12 showdown on Saturday night between two teams who have high hopes on how this season will end, and this game could a long ways in deciding who is playing in the PAC 12 title game.
The Utah Utes will make the trip to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to take on the USC Trojans. In each of the last four match ups the home team has won the game.
The Utah Utes have had a really nice season so far this year, but an injury and thrown off the projection of where it is going.
After winning the first four games of the season the Utes ran into a road block in their last game against Stanford losing 23-20.
Quarterback Tyler Huntley was injured the previous game against Arizona and had to sit against the Stanford Cardinals and that was a big reason why they lost the game.
He is dealing with a shoulder injury, and no one has really said how long he will be out, although I would expect him to be able to go in this game.
Filling in his place is Senior Troy Williams who comes into this game having appeared in three games. Against the Cardinals he threw for 238 yards and a touchdown.
He also threw two interceptions which really hurt the teams chances. If they are going to win this game, he can’t keep having those costly turnovers.
On the other side of this match up is the USC Trojans who have also had a nice season except for one big slip up against the Washington State Cougars.
The Trojans have five wins so far this year, and at points there are questions about how good this team is because in big games they have struggled a bit.
For the Trojans it’s all about Sam Darnold who a lot of people consider the best quarterback in all of college football.
He at times has had issues with his accuracy though. He comes into this game having thrown for 1705 yards and 12 touchdowns.
The big issue for Darnold though is he has thrown nine interceptions which is way too many for a guy looking to make his name in the NFL after his college career is over.
I really think for the Trojans to have success in this game Darnold needs to play well and not turn the ball over. The Utes secondary will pick him off if he makes mistakes so he needs to be really smart with his throws.
On the defensive side of the ball they need the Trojans need to create some turnovers. If they can do that they should be able to cruise to victory.
