The USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins have the top two conference records in the Pac-12 South Division, and end their regular season with a berth in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Football Game on the line. But only for UCLA, as USC is ineligible for the postseason this year. The Trojans will have to settle for being prohibitive favorites on Saturday night.
USC opens as a 15.5-point favorite over the Bruins, per Odds Shark. The Trojans are the home team on Saturday, and they have beaten the Bruins six straight times at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. USC has won their last four meetings with UCLA overall, and 11 of their last 12 years.
A win by UCLA puts them in the Pac-12 Championship Game, but should the Bruins lose they would need help in the form of a loss by Utah.
Saturday night's 7 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more UCLA football news and analysis, be sure to read Bruins Nation. For USC football information, be sure to read Conquest Chronicles.
