After putting a hurting on a good Washington team last week 40-17 and giving Stanford all they could handle the week before that, I'm convinced USC is quietly one of the better teams in the nation.
This week, they'll be tested against a volatile Oregon offense that is averaging 291.8 yards a game on the ground. The matchup to watch in this one, much like last week, will be the speed of Oregon against the stout Trojans defense, who are giving up only 100.4 rushing yards per game.
Last week, I picked against the speed of the Ducks, thinking that the Stanford defense would be able to slow them down and the Cardinal would be able to hang with them on the scoreboard. I'm not going to make the same mistake twice; I'll take the Quack Attack in this one.
LaMichael James and Darron Thomas keep cruising toward a conference title and a possible rematch with LSU.
