You can say goodbye to the USC Trojans as contenders in NCAA betting. Some people believed that USC might get some attention in the AP poll even though they are on NCAA probation.
That is not going to happen now that USC is no longer unbeaten. The Trojans lost this past week in college football betting against Washington by a score of 32-31.
Trojans Going Down – USC lost at home to Washington and with that loss, the chances of USC doing anything on the national scene are over. And they may be over for a long, long time. It was thought the Trojans could have a good year this season since the loss of scholarships will be more detrimental in the future. Now that USC has suffered a loss it would not be surprising to see the flood gates open.
The Trojans lost to the Huskies as Washington quarterback Jake Locker passed for 310 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 110 yards. It is the second straight year that the Huskies have beaten USC on a last minute field goal. It was the first win for Washington at USC since 1996. Allen Bradford rushed for 223 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
USC Troubles Likely to Continue – Lane Kiffin is really getting what he deserves. He abandoned Tennessee and left them in shambles. Now he is in USC and it won’t be long before the Trojans are a mess. They lost to Washington and more losses are on the way. They go to a mad Stanford team next week in a game they will probably lose. They then host California and then Oregon. They could easily lose two of those three games. Road games at Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA late in the year don’t look easy. Even the home game against Notre Dame won’t be easy. Can you say losing record for USC? The Trojans are 4-1 heading into this week’s game at Stanford but you can easily see a lot of losses coming up both straight up and against the NCAA betting point spread at the Sbg sportsbook. As you look at USC the rest of the season you may want to show some caution because the best days for USC are behind them.
