The Trojans have won eight straight games in this series and have covered six of the last seven, but this is a scary spot for them to be in. USC is vulnerable now, and it is coming off of a poor offensive game against Stanford in which it just didn’t play well. The Men of Troy aren’t in good shape, and Cal needs a win in a big time way. Head Coach Jeff Tedford’s job might depend on it. We don’t think that the Trojans are going to end up losing the game, but this could be a lot closer than most probably think. This won’t be a case of USC coming out off of a loss ready to just pounce. The Golden Bears should be able to hang, just like they did last week in the Horseshoe against the Ohio State Buckeyes.
California @ USC Pick: California +15.5
California @ USC Score Prediction: USC 28 – Cal 27
