I picked Utah to win before the season started. It's a Thursday night road game, hostile environment, high altitude (4,333 feet above sea level) and Khaled Holmes (starting Center) has a high ankle sprain that he re-injured during the Cal game.
USC has struggled to protect Barkley at times this season, and when that happens, and we are unable to run the ball effectively, he's been very mistake-prone.
Why I feel we have a shot at winning: Utah's offense blows goats. They lost their starting QB at the beginning of the season, and the replacement guy hasn't exactly been lights out.
Also, USC's DL has been awesome so far this season. Morgan Breslin
is a beast.
