USC Football takes on Cal Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. PST. It's going to be a great night to see a game, and if anyone can't get out to the game and also doesn't have access to a TV, there is still a way to see the PAC-12 contest against the Golden Bears. That can be done via getting a live stream to FuboTV at this link here.
The Trojans are 71-31-5 against the Bears in their history, although last year did not get the win against them. There was a lot going on that game, and even rumors that many players didn't even want to play in it. It was a re-scheduled game for after when the season was supposed to be over, due to the contest being cancelled originally due to Cal's COVID-19 issues.
Regardless of the reason, though, SC lost and will be looking for revenge this year. Interestingly, Cal has won two of the last three meetings against USC. This year, however, will likely be much different. The Trojans are 7-1 on the season and ranked in the top nine of the entire country. Cal is just 3-5 on the year.
The head coach over at Cal is Justin Wilcox, who is of course the former USC Defensive Coordinator here from 2014-2015. He has been the head coach over at Berkeley since 2017. Wilcox has had a rough go over there--going 29-33 so far in his head coaching career at Cal. He enters this game on a four-game losing streak, and the Trojans need to capitalize on this opportunity.
USC Football has had a week to get healthy since last game.
USC Football was missing four of their best players in their last game, and six primary rotational players. Then, their starting left tackle went down too, during the game. They couldn't catch a break with the injury bug, yet they still won the game. Even if they just get two or three of these players back for this week, they should be able to not only beat Cal, but not even keep it competitive.
The team will also be playing at home for the first time in four weeks. Coming off of back-to-back weeks where the offense has put up over 40 points, the Trojans have proven that they can have those type of performances healthy or not. That's tough news for Cal, who likely doesn't have the offense to keep up with SC in a shoot-out.
