The Trojans are ranked 3rd in the country in the latest AP poll, behind Florida and Texas. The Trojans are coming off a win last week against Ohio State while Washington was a winner in college football betting odds over Idaho.
College football betting line has USC at about a three-touchdown favorite in this game. That might be too many considering USC didn’t cover the college football betting line at Ohio State last week and Washington is much better this season under new head coach Steve Sarkisian.
USC got a solid game last week from freshman quarterback Matt Barkley but to cover a three touchdown college football betting line he will have to play even better this week.
The Huskies lost their opener to LSU but played well and then won last week against Idaho in college football betting odds at the sportsbook. The story lines on Saturday will definitely surround Sarkisian as he faces his former team. Last season Sarkisian was the offensive coordinator for USC and now he is the head coach at Washington. “I think our biggest fear is we put too much into this game, we try and build this thing up to be too much than it is,” Sarkisian said. “If we try and put too much into this there can be the repercussions after the game if it doesn’t go the way we want or if it does go the way we want there can be repercussions afterward. So we’ve got to be careful of that.”
