USC Football heads to Salt Lake City this weekend to play No. 20 Utah in their first ranked matchup of the season. The game will kickoff at 5 p.m. PST, meaning that SC will be on primetime TV despite all the other great games this weekend. That's how big this Pac-12 contest is. If anyone needs a coverage map for the contest on Saturday, just click here to get one.

The game is going to be nationally televised, so while you can check your local listings for more information on that, the important thing is that everyone will be getting the game. Jason Benetti will be doing the play-by-play for the contest, while Brock Huard will do the color commentating. Huard likely rings a bell, as he was the quarterback at Washington from 1996 to 1998.

This game is a highly-anticipated battle between the two teams that many expected to meet up with in the Pac-12 Championship Game before the season. Many still pick these two to face off in that conference title game, although if Utah loses, that may not be able to happen. Remember that one of Utah's two losses is against UCLA; losing that tie-breaker.

Utah is averaging 40.3 points per game, and USC is averaging 40.2 points per game. Both have strong offenses that could end up getting in a shoot-out with one another on Saturday. Anything's possible on offense when Caleb Williams and Cam Rising are quarterbacking the Trojans and Utes, respectively.

Both QB's are very good, and very well may be the top two in the conference. Due to how good the signal-callers are, this one could be a shootout. Luckily for USC's defense, they've been a bit better and only allowing 18.67 points per game this season. It goes to show that while Utah's favored in the contest, SC most certainly has a shot to upset their Pac-12 foes at home.
