USC Football takes on Utah for a re-match in the PAC-12 Championship on Friday. The re-match is of course in reference to how SC played Utah in the regular season this year. They ended up losing that game 43-42 in heart-breaking fashion after horrendous roughing the passer penalties that the PAC-12 actually even admitted were incorrect calls.
The good thing is that this Week 7 loss was their only L of the season. Therefore, the No. 4 Trojans simply just have to win this game against the No. 11 Utes and they have their one loss avenged. There would be no way for the College Football Playoff to push them back out of the top four if they avenge their one loss against the 9-3 Utes on Friday.
Therefore, this game is the one that everyone needs to be watching. The game's going to be on Fox, but if anyone doesn't have access to a television, make sure to stream the game. That can be done via getting a free trial to FuboTV at this link. USC will also likely win this game, too.
Again, SC is the better team. It's not just that they would have won without those objectively absurd roughing the passer calls. It's also that there's a reason Utah lost to UCLA (who USC beat), and also lost to Florida (who is 6-6). Not to mention, they lost to Oregon, who just lost to Oregon State (who USC beat).
USC Football's offense will be too much for Utah to handle.
USC Football has the third-most amount of points per game scored, at 42.5. They have the top Heisman front-runner on their team as well in starting QB Caleb Williams. He ALWAYS finds ways to make plays, even when seemingly the entire front seven is surrounding him in the pocket.
Williams averages 9.1 yards per pass attempt and 10.5 adjusted yards per pass attempt. He also has 44 total touchdowns (34 passing), and has only turned the ball over three total times. Adding 351 rushing yards to this production, there's a reason they call him "Superman." Interestingly, he destroyed Utah's defense when they faced off earlier.
Williams averaged 9.1 yards per pass attempt that game, and 7.1 yards per rush attempt that game. He threw for five touchdowns, and didn't turn the ball over a single time. He had 381 passing yards and 57 rushing yards. If Utah has to see that again, they're going to have a tough time containing him enough for a win. Rice-Eccles Stadium won't be there to save them this time.
