USC Football is playing UCLA on Saturday in what is the most meaningful USC-UCLA rivalry matchup since 2005. It's great for the rivalry for both teams to be good when they play each other, and both teams are in the top 16 of the country right now.
UCLA is at No. 16, and USC is at No. 7. The PAC-12 needed a strong USC-UCLA rivalry in their last two years in the conference, and they're getting that this year.

USC Football at UCLA Predictions
USC Football will most certainly score a lot of points in this game, as UCLA is allowing an awful 26.4 points per contest. The issue is, UCLA likely will too--as USC has allowed 24.4 points per contest. It'll be a shootout, and UCLA's offense is very good too. They average 39.5 points per game, posing a major threat to upset the Trojans.
Before the season, I had USC dropping a game via an upset, and that hasn't happened yet. The best team remaining on their schedule is certainly the Bruins, and they don't get them at home. UCLA has the highest rush yards per attempt (6.23) in America, and USC is just 94th in the country in rush yards per attempt allowed (4.46).
The Trojans are the better team (better offense, better defense, and better coach), but this is the week for USC to be upset, and by a score of 45-41.
USC Football at UCLA History
USC Football has dominated the rivalry with their crosstown opponents. They lead the series 49-33-7. The last time SC played the Bruins (last year), they lost 62-33. That's part of why UCLA is a bad matchup for the Trojans.
UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson ran for two touchdowns against the Trojans, and posted a 4.2 yards per carry average. UCLA RB Zach Charbonnet ran for 167 yards on 28 carries. Those two are both back, and USC hasn't fixed their run defense. Again, if there's any week for an inferior opponent to beat USC, it's got to be this one.
