Saturday's game between the USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins is expected to be a high-scoring affair, with an over/under at 66 points, according to the oddsmakers at OddsShark.com.

With two potent offenses coming to the Rose Bowl, Saturday's shootout should feature plenty of touchdowns. USC is averaging 36.9 points per game (26th best in the nation), while UCLA has posted 37.7 points per game (22nd best). USC's season high came in a 62-51 loss to Oregon, while UCLA scored its most points of the year in a 66-10 win over Arizona.

USC has played in four games this season with 66-plus total points, a 42-29 win at Syracuse, a 38-28 win at Utah, a 39-36 loss at Arizona and a 62-51 loss vs. Oregon. UCLA, meanwhile, has played in five games this season with 66-plus total points and won all of them.

The last USC-UCLA game with at least 66 points was 2005, when No. 1 USC beat UCLA, 66-19, at the Coliseum.
