USC-Oregon State Injury Report
No change in terms of USC left tackles Courtland Ford and Bobby Haskins, who are both battling injuries. Ford did not play against Fresno State. Haskins was slightly injured against the Bulldogs.

News and Notes
USC (50.7 PPG) and Oregon State (45.7 PPG) can light up the scoreboard. Each rank in the top 15 in scoring offense, with the Trojans checking in No. 7 while the Beavers are No. 13.
USC receiver Jordan Addison won the 2021 Biletnikoff Award. This year, he has amassed 295 yards and five touchdowns. Running back Travis Dye, yet another transfer via (Oregon), leads the team in rushing with 227 yards and two scores.
The key for the Men of Troy is unlocking their speed and playmakers all over the field. Though the stats are almost identical, their diversity of threats is how they get the job done. USC’s offense is effortless and the Trojans haven’t had a true test all year. Could this road game at Reser Stadium be it?
Advice and Prediction
USC and Caleb Williams will be hard to stop. The Trojans will win outright. As for the point spread and the over-under, pick at your own risk.
