Over is 9-2 in Trojans last 11 games in October.

Under is 8-3 in Utes last 11 games on fieldturf.
Under is 5-2 in Utes last 7 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
My Prediction: Utah hasn’t looked good at all so far this year and they were completley dominated by Arizona State in their last game. USC is far superior and should easily cover the spread in this one despite being on the road.
