2012 Sun Bowl picks and predictions: USC projected to win by most

Stephen Dunn

Many experts expect the USC Trojans to come away with a victory in the Sun Bowl

The University of Southern California Trojans and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets both fell short of expectations this season, but both now have a chance for a bit of redemption with the Sun Bowl looming on New Year's Eve.

It's a tough game to call for most experts considering Matt Barkley has now been ruled out with a shoulder injury, but over at CBSSports.com, Sean Bielawski makes his pick in favor of USC, 38-34.

Also at CBSSports.com, the picks continue to come in fast and furious and all are in favor of the Trojans walking away with a victory from El Paso.

However, Jerry Hinnen did give the Yellow Jackets a small measure of love, picking them to cover the spread of 10.5 points.

Over at ESPN.com, Will Harris gives his prediction to USC, picking it to win 38-28 against its ACC foe. However, with a freshman quarterback in for the Trojans, it could be a different game than most expect.
