USC-Utah Preview

In the first of two gut checks for the USC Trojans (5-1), the Utah Utes (4-1) come into Los Angeles looking to dethrone the Trojans’ plans of a dark horse bid for the College Football Playoff.

Utah will be without starting quarterback Tyler Huntley for the second straight week — Troy Williams struggled against Stanford last week in the Utes’ first loss and will likely lineup under center against USC.

As for the Trojans, they’re coming off a 38-7 vacation cruise of a win over Oregon State — a bounce-back performance after falling to Washington State.

USC is in the midst of a gauntlet — Utah this week, Notre Dame next. So if the Trojans can survive a formidable Utah squad, they’ll be in a position to earn their way back into the CFP conversation.
