TV Schedule: Saturday, Nov. 28, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN2
Stadium: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Line: USC (-3)
While both teams have done a good amount of disappointing in 2015, they both are also still playing for quite a bit entering this Week 13 clash. Either team could make the Pac-12 title game — if you can believe that.
UCLA is coming off of a win against the Utah Utes, so it will be bringing some momentum to the table. USC, unfortunately, is not entering this rivalry week game with momentum, as it lost to the Oregon Ducks the week prior.
However, the Trojans do have Cody Kessler and will be playing at home. Kessler was supposed to contend for a Heisman this season (he did for a few weeks), but he is still capable of ripping opposing defenses to shreds. Meanwhile, the Bruins start a freshman at the QB position, and Josh Rosen has had himself quite the year.
Unfortunately for both of these teams, the College Football Playoff isn’t even an option, and the same goes for the entire conference as well. Winning a Pac-12 title would certainly help dull some of the pain, though — wouldn’t you say?
Nonetheless, things should get rather interesting in college football in Week 13, and bowl season is just around the corner.
PREDICTION: Bruins 28, Trojans 35
