BYU vs USC Game Preview
Why BYU Will Win
There’s still an outside chance of BYU sliding on up into New Year’s Six bowl territory.
On a roll with the schedule lightening up at the end, the Cougars have been rolling with a passing game that’s gone off for well over 1,000 yards over the the last three games – and hit 300 yards in five of the last six games – and with a whole lot of other key parts working.
This team doesn’t beat itself. It doesn’t get hit with a lot of penalties, it doesn’t turn the ball over, and it all comes with the explosion with the offense able to turn the lights out fast.
USC is hammered by a whole slew of problems. It’s still giving the effort, but it’s not stopping anyone’s offense right now.
Why USC Will Win
There’s still a ton of talent here.
USC might be playing out the string of a lost season, but win this, beat Cal next week, and there’s at least a bowl game to play for and something fun for a team that had the unfair gut punch of a coaching change early on.
The passing game still works, even without star WR Drake London. Jaxson Dart threw for 325 yards in the loss to UCLA, the BYU secondary will give up yards to teams looking to bomb away, and for all of the overall problems and issues, USC still has the No. 1 offense in the Pac-12.
What’s Going To Happen
Once again, USC will play hard and come up with a push offensively, but BYU will be too balanced and too sharp.
Don’t think this really, really doesn’t matter to BYU – a win means a 5-0 season vs the Pac-12.
