Prediction:

Last time the Trojans were in Corvallis, they came away victims of a major upset. But that was two years ago and USC has long since recovered. Oregon State’s young defense didn’t fare well against Stanford and Penn State, which has Trojans’ QB Mark Sanchez and head coach Pete Carroll licking their chops. If the Beavers can’t get any pressure on Sanchez, they’re toast. We predict Southern Cal over Oregon State 42-13.
