5* Washington / USC – Over 56
The Washington Huskies defense has been excellent against the run thus far. The pundits will say that’s because they’ve been horrible against the pass, and they may have a valid point. Washington is allowing opponents 321 passing yards per game. That’s not good news since they’ll be facing a red-hot quarterback in Cody Kessler of USC. Kessler has thrown 1293 yards, completed 73% of his attempts, and has 15 touchdown passes against one pick in the Trojans first four games. However, the USC defense has allowed 410.0 yards per game, and has been bailed out by forcing 8 turnovers.
Any team (USC) coming off a conference win by 10 points or more, versus an opponent (Washington) coming off a home favorite SU loss, resulted in those games going 63-28 (69.2%) over the total since 2011. The average total in those games was 56.1, and there was a combined average of 61.3 points scored.
