Bet on USC Because…
This is one of those years that the Trojans should surely have the Bruins’ number when they get on that football field. They are usually matched up more equal than the numbers seem to indicate this year in this monster battle over who dominates Southern California (without necessarily being the University of…).
The USC Trojans have a 6 game winning streak going on right now, and they have been beating some quality opponents including unbeaten and 4th ranked Washington Huskies last week 26-13. This squad tends to use whichever part of the offense they need week to week as they are ranked 38th in rushing and 34th in passing offense in the nation. They are 29th overall offensively and 35 overall defensively which shows balance and longevity this year.
Bet on UCLA Because…
This is a rivalry that is deep rooted in emotion and tradition when the USC Trojans come to the UCLA Bruins for what is always a game that is hard to measure by statistics and college betting lines.
The Bruins ended a 4 game losing streak last week by defeating the Oregon State Beavers 38-24 and are working together as a team at the right time coming into this game.

USC vs UCLA Final Score Prediction
The fact that USC seems to be the stud on the block right now doesn’t mean much in this college football rivalry, but when you look at some of the numbers and the teams played there is a trend. It’s the nature of the conference where every team is a rival of every other team.
USC is simply superior on offense, and that is the simple bottom line to this rivalry when looking at the numbers. USC averages 5.3 yards per rush and UCLA gives up over 4.0 yards a rush to opponents that are inferior to the Trojans. UCLA is only averaging 2.9 yards rushing per attempt, and the Trojans aren’t giving up much more than that.
