USC at Washington

No. 3 USC had plenty of questions with a true freshman quarterback, but the Trojans may turn to their backup on Saturday when they face Washington at 3:30PM ET from Husky Stadium.

Bet USC at Washington

Matt Barkley led the Trojans down the field in a fourth-quarter drive to help defeat Ohio State 18-15 last week, but a bruised shoulder may keep Barkley from seeing the field on Saturday for the PAC 10 opener. Barkley has sat out of practice all week and coach Pete Carroll has not named a starter for Saturday’s game as of yet, with sophomore Aaron Corp looking more likely to get the call each day. The Trojans may also be without safety Taylor Mays, who is nursing a sprained knee ligament. Barkley was 15-of-31 passing for 195 yards and one interception against the Buckeyes last week, while Joe McKnight had 60 yards rushing on 16 carries. The USC offense had just 313 yards of offense, but held Ohio State to 265 yards.

Washington is off to a 1-1 start under new coach and former USC offensive coordinator, Steve Sarkisian. The Huskies lost 31-23 to LSU at home in the opener, but rebounded with a 42-23 win over Idaho last weekend. Jake Locker continues to look sharp, throwing for 253 yards on 17-of-25 passing with three touchdowns in last week’s win. Chris Polk also rushed for 80 yards and a score in the win. Defensively, Washington did allow Idaho to throw for 349 yards through the air.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made USC 21-point road favorites over Washington on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 53.5.
