20 USC 34
4 Washington 38
Last season the USC Trojans faced a team that had playoff aspirations in the Utah Utes. The Trojans would go on to steamroll the Utes 42-24. At the time, Utah was ranked No.3 in the College Football Playoff rankings. What we witnessed in that ball game is how dangerous the Trojans can be when they play up to their full potential.
There should be no way the Trojans should be getting embarrassed by programs such as Utah and Oregon. However, over the recent year’s teams such as Utah, Stanford, and Washington have gained some momentum on the Trojans. This Saturday, they will try to knock off another team in the Pac-12 Conference, which has playoff aspirations in the Washington Huskies.
The Huskies pose one of the best passing attacks in the Nation led by Heisman Trophy Candidate Jake Browning. Browning is expected by many draft experts to be a top-notch signal caller in the National Football League shortly. Tomorrow night, he will be facing his toughest challenge of the season so far against the Trojans defense.
USC’s defense has guys that are ready to play at the pro level right now. Usually, those type of defenses feasts on opposing quarterbacks. But the Huskies have an NFL-Caliber quarterback in their arsenal; that should be able to expose the Trojans defense. The Trojans number one priority is to keep Jake Browning and the Huskies offense off the field as much as possible.
If the Trojans pull off the big upset this Saturday, it will be the second time that they have defeated a potential playoff contender in the Pac-12 Conference. However, I believe Jake Browning will show everyone why he deserves to be in the conversation for the Heisman Trophy, by leading the Huskies to a victory over the Trojans tomorrow night.
