Premium Pick
2 units on USC -21 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2)
Result:
LOSS

As is well known, this USC program took some major hits, but it looks like the oddsmakers aren't feeling very sorry for them as they are posted three TDs better than Hawaii on the road. I don't feel sorry for them either. Lane Kiffin returns to USC where he played an integral role for many years, so the change is very subtle. This is a program that has amassed NFL talent in a lot of areas and will be playing with house money, with no expectations. They should come into this one with something to prove and an "us-against-the-world' attitude. If they get a chance to run up the score, you can bet they will. The Hawaii Warriors have had their day in the sun under June Jones and Colt Brennan, but those days are becoming more and more distant. Over the last two years this team is just 13-15. They are not good up front and will struggle early with just three lineman returning on offense and defense combined. Last season, the offense had its lowest scoring output in a decade, while the defense gave up 30 points per game - the worst in five years. Unfortunately, most of the lines from those units are gone and USC has the horses to make this one a blowout. USC gets the call.
