USC football is back at home this week, and for the fans going to the game, it's likely going to be a bit more enjoyable of an atmosphere than it was Week 1. That's because there was a major heatwave going on Week 1 at the Coliseum. Now, though, it's going to be a lot nicer of a day to head out to the stadium.

It's going to be a 7:30 p.m. PST kickoff, which will eliminate almost all of the sun, but it's also just going to be much cooler out in general. According to The Weather Channel, the high on Saturday is going to be 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The low is going to be 64, so heat really isn't going to be a problem at all for both the players and fans.

It's supposed to be that 64 degrees Fahrenheit at night, so that's about what to expect for the game. There's just a 16% chance of rain, too, so it'll be a great night to go to a game. Especially due to how high of a chance USC has to win the game.

USC football is a heavy favorite coming into the game vs. Fresno State.

The spread according to WynnBET is -12.5 USC football. The team is 2-0 with a No. 7 next to their name. While Fresno State looked competitive this last week against Oregon State, only losing by three points, they still have that loss already to an unranked team.

The Bulldogs have kept it close against USC multiple times before, but they haven't pulled out a win against SC since 1992 (have played four more times since then). The Trojans have put up 107 points so far this season, and that includes their Power 5, Pac-12 opener last week where they put up 41 points against Stanford.

They're ready for their second Group of Five win of the season, led by Caleb Williams, who's second in Heisman odds right now (BetMGM), and is averaging 12 yards per pass attempt to go along with 4.8 yards per rush attempt. He's impossible to defend, as is the entire offense. That likely won't change on Saturday.
