Boston College would love nothing more than to have a victory over USC to hang its hat on going into next season. The Trojans are looking to take out all their frustrations on a team they don’t think deserves to be on the same field as them during the bowl season.
Boston College can look forward to a tough game. But without Joe McKnight to take the pressure off true freshman Matt Barkley, he may be too shaken from previous defeats to get them through this one.
Coaching – Big Edge to USC
Offense – Edge to Boston College
Defense – About even
Special – Edge to USC
Sheer Tenacity! – Edge to Boston College
USC expected to play for a lot more than this when the season started. We probably witnessed the end of its Pac 10 dominance for the next few seasons. Boston College didn’t know it would get this chance, and they’re licking their chops!
65% Chance of Boston College Victory
UPDATE: USC wins 24 - 13
Boston College had the opportunity to win this, but credit Pete Carroll for having his squad ready on both sides of the ball. Congratulations to USC on ending the year with a "W". They came out much more hungry, and it payed off with some huge plays on defense.
