    USC 17
    FSU 6

    SC can't run and is Daniels forced into huck & chuck mode - which manages to score a few points. FSU's offense is even worse with SC's d-line dominating.

    USC 28
    FSU 9

    SC slow out the gate but finds a 2nd half rhythm and cruises to their first victory.

    This game is odd for sure. USC o line is weak, Fresno St D-line is strong. Fresno St offensive is weak, USC d line is strong. BUT USC receivers are amazing, and apparently so is the Fresno St secondary. Lot's of interesting sub plots.

    I think we'll see USC jump up 21-0 in the 1st qtr.

    1/2 time, I think Fresno will still be down but will have scored, make it 21-10.

    End of 3rd, I think the teams will trade scores, we'll see USC 28-17.

    USC will score again early in the 4th, to make it 35-17 and then CCH will pull the starters

    End of game, I think we'll see 38-24 USC. The o-line will struggle at times, the USC secondary will give up some plays but generally speaking we'll see a B/B+ effort.

    Fresno St crushed both UCLA & Arizona St on the ROAD/Neutral site last season. Two teams we lost to.

    They also played UNLV last season, SC beat the Rebels 43-21 at HOME, while Fresno won 48-3 on the ROAD.

    IF this game were last year, we'd likely have lost.

    That said, its a new year -- FSU lost a ton of starting talent to graduation and a couple early entrants to NFL. Their defense is still solid with talent and good coaching, while their offense is a question mark, replacing 8 or 9 starters with mostly RS freshman.

    This game could be tighter than most imagine, as Fresno State would win games in our League.

    34-21
