After Stunning Loss, Trojans Look to Rebound Against Woeful Beavers


The USC Trojans will try to rebound from their stunning 30-27 loss to Washington State as 5-point road chalk when they return home on Saturday for a Week 6 date with the Oregon State Beavers at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. While the Trojans watched their 11-game win streak end, the Beavers fell 42-7 to Washington as 27-point underdogs in their third straight defeat.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in Oregon State’s last three games against USC.
  • USC is 12-0 SU in its last 12 games at home.
  • Oregon State is 0-14 SU in its last 14 games on the road against teams with winning records.

The Trojans’ loss to the Cougars has devastated their ranking on the AP Top 25, dropping them nine positions to No. 14 and placing their College Football Playoff aspirations in grave doubt. USC has also been on a slide at the sportsbooks, covering just once in its past six overall, including three straight ATS losses as double-digit chalk. However, the Trojans ride an 11-game SU win streak while pegged as favorites by 10 or more points.

The Beavers are winless in four dates with FCS opponents this season, going 0-4 SU and ATS, and barely eked out a 35-32 win over FBS Portland State as 25.5-point chalk in their lone victory of the campaign. Oregon State is also a dismal 1-29 SU as a double-digit underdog, but owns a respectable 6-5 ATS mark over its past 11.

USC has won and covered in its past two dates with the Beavers. But Oregon State has historically kept things close, posting SU wins in three of seven dates with the Trojans, and going 5-3 ATS in eight clashes since 2004.
