It’s been a long time coming for the Golden Bears to post a win over the Men of Troy. So, this time around, they hope that getting away from Berkeley and playing in San Francisco is just what the doctor ordered. After all, the last win in this series for Cal came in 2003, and that was in overtime. Even last year, when the Trojans were down, they were able to walk away with a convincing 48-14 triumph.

Last week, the Golden Bears couldn’t stop RB LaMichael James on the ground, as he had over 230 yards before leaving the game with an elbow injury. This week, the star of the show could be WR Robert Woods. There aren’t many receivers in the country that are virtually always a threat to put up remarkable numbers, but after already amassing 55 receptions to start off the year, you know that Head Coach Lane Kiffin is going to do what he can to get the ball in the hands of his big time playmaker.

Still, we don’t think that the Golden Bears are going to lay down and die. We do think that they are going to struggle, especially on defense in this one, and we have to remember that USC has played in games that featured 89 points and 65 points in back to back weeks with its defense allowing 40+ in both efforts. That’s good enough for us to think that this one is going to get into the 60s at minimum.

Week 7 NCAA Football Pick: USC/Cal Over 58.5
