  • USC is 2-6 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS win.

Stanford put their name into the New Year’s Six Bowl contention with a huge win over Notre Dame last week. Kevin Hogan put the Cardinal on his back against the Irish with the senior completing 81 percent of his passes while tallying four touchdowns and no interceptions.

USC won the Pac-12 South last week, but they will be the first to admit that it came with a lot more detours than they expected. After the first six weeks the Trojans were 3-3 SU and head coach Steve Sarkisian was let go to deal with his personal issues. Since then, the Trojans are 5-1 SU while senior quarterback Cody Kessler has thrown 10 touchdowns and one interception in that span.
