The USC vs Utah game is up for 8:00 PM EST later tonight and the match will be going down at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah. The 4-2 Utah Utes are hosting the similarly 4-2 USC Trojans and looking for a win. Quite positive prospects for the Utes to grab a win, we would say. The Trojans are coming off three consecutive wins and don’t want that streak to end, so will they give it all they have against the Utes? We hope so.

The USC Trojans are riding high on confidence. They are on a three-game win streak starting with a 39-36 win over the Washington State Cougars and a 24-20 win over the Arizona Wildcats. In their most recent game, they won 31-20 against the #19 Colorado Buffaloes.
They are hunting for their next win. They don’t want the Utes to upset their streak in any manner. The Trojans want a comfortable, safe win in this matchup so that the team can prepare better for the future games yet to come, against much tougher opponents.
The Utah Utes are coming off a 40-21 win against the #14 Stanford Cardinal and most recently a 42-10 win over the Arizona Wildcats.
Before these, the team had lost 28-24 at the hands of the Washington State Cougars. They don’t want a repeat of a loss now. They are in a good position. The Utes want to improve their conference standing, sure, which is currently 2-2 (against the 3-1 of the USC Trojans), but more important than that is avoiding a loss right now.
The Utes have noticeably better stats. A difference of almost 30 total yards with the Trojans and a lack of 60 total yards (allowing) puts them in a better position. They are also averaging slightly more points than the Trojans while conceding almost 10 points less on average.
