No. 11 USC (4-1, 2-1 Pac 12) is coming off a 38-28 Thursday night win over the Utah Utes. Led by quarterback Matt Barkley and a stingy defense, the Trojans overcame an early 14-point deficit that was the result of two offensive turnovers in the game's first three minutes. Barkley, who has recorded 1,308 passing yards and 15 touchdowns this season, threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns against Utah and orchestrated a dominant showing by USC's offense in the second half.
Washington (3-2, 1-1) is looking to rebound after being dominated by Oregon, 52-21, last week. The Huskies' passing offense struggled to gain any traction against the Ducks, and quarterback Keith Price threw for just 145 yards and was picked off twice.
USC is 2-3 against the spread this season.
