1 unit on Game Total OVER 55 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95) RESULT: WIN
USC has dreams of a national title, but what's the deal with this defense? This team allowed 49 points in the Rose Bowl in January and now 31 last week to a MAC school. They come off a 49-31 win over Western Michigan as a huge favorite in a game that was tied 21-21 in the fourth. The Trojans had difficulty stopping Western Michigan's running game, which racked up 263 yards, 5.5 yards per carry. At least USC has speed and experience on offense, rolling up 289 yards passing, 232 rushing. Rival Stanford is in town with a powerhouse offense, off a 62-7 win over Rice two weeks ago in Australia. Eight starters are back on offense to a unit that put 27 points and 302 rushing yards on the Trojans last year. The OVER is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings. Take the OVER.
