Big Ten Terrified of Playing USC

USC Football

USC has steamrolled Big Ten opponents with the Trojans winning the past 15 games against the conference while going 11-4 ATS in those games. USC will play the Wisconsin Badgers in the Holiday Bowl on December 30.

Shark Bites
  • Wisconsin is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games after a win.
  • USC is 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games after a loss.
  • Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave has more interceptions than touchdowns this season.

Since Clay Helton took over as head coach for the Trojans, the team has gone 5-2 with senior Cody Kessler lighting it up. The quarterback has thrown 11 touchdowns and just one interception since Helton came on as the coach of the Trojans.

Wisconsin has a tendency to play ugly, but their defense has been one of the best in the nation. The Badgers have allowed fewer points per game than any other team in the country and the third fewest yards per game.
