After winning their first two games, the Trojans were surprised two weeks ago by Boston College 37-31. However, they are favorites to win this match by -10 points, and the game total is rated at 56.

The Beavers remain unbeaten this season after three weeks, but in order to continue their good start will have to win at the Coliseum for the first time since 1960. Oregon State has 22 losses in a row on the road against the Trojans.

No. 18 Southern California has won 33 of the last 37 games against the Beavers, but they have split the last six. Last season, Steve Sarkisian’s team took the win away from home by 31-14.

USC is No. 29 in passing offense thanks to quarterback Cody Kessler, who has 846 yards and eight touchdowns without an interception. The running back Javorius Allen has 318 yards and a touchdown after three games.

Quarterback Sean Mannion is the leader of the Oregon State’s offense and has thrown for 903 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. He is ranked third with the most passing yards in the history of the PAC 12 only behind former USC players Matt Barkley and Carson Palmer.

The bad news for Oregon State is that they will not count for this match with receiver Victor Bolden, who has 18 catches for 192 yards and a touchdown.

USC will get their third win of the season and maintain their dominance at home against the Beavers.

Best pick: USC -10.
