On Saturday night, the #20 USC Trojans (5-2) and the #19 Utah Utes (5-1) will face each other in a battle between two very good offenses. USC pulled off a 19-3 home win over Utah in 2013.
USC put together their best offensive performance of the season last Saturday when they beat Colorado 56-28 at home. They had 532 yards in that win, which included 213 yards on the ground alone.
Through seven games, the Trojans have scored 35.6 points per game while only giving up 23.1 points per game. USC quarterback Cody Kessler has completed 69.5 percent of his passes this season for 1,884 yards with 18 touchdowns and just one interception. Junior running back Javorius Allen has rushed for 909 yards this year with eight scores.
Utah won their second straight game last Thursday when they defeated Oregon State 29-23 in double overtime. They won despite only passing for 62 yards and converting just three of their 14 third down chances. The one thing they did do well was run the ball, gaining 253 yards on the ground.
Utah has been able to rush for 210.7 yards per game this season while scoring 37.8 points per game. Running back Devontae Booker has averaged 6.2 yards per carry this season for 742 yards with seven touchdowns.
