After a less-than-stellar performance against the Colorado Buffalos over the weekend, the USC Trojans are returning home to take on the Arizona Wildcats. The Trojans managed to secure a victory against Colorado, but it was far from an impressive win, serving as a stark reminder of the issues they currently face.
Now, they find themselves pitted against an Arizona team that appears to be at a disadvantage, especially considering their need to travel to face the Trojans on their home turf. This upcoming game could serve as the perfect opportunity for the Trojans to regain their footing after two consecutive lackluster showings.
“Like their game against Washington, the Wildcats have the odds stacked against them. Arizona has opened as a 22-point underdog to the Trojans, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. No over/under has been listed.”
The Trojans are heavily favored in this matchup, and if things go according to plan, they should have no trouble handling the Wildcats. However, recent events have shown that any opposing team can put up a fight against USC’s defensive unit. The Trojans boast a strong historical record against Arizona, having emerged victorious in their last ten encounters. Their most recent loss to Arizona dates back to 2012, and the last time they fell to the Wildcats at home was in 2009.
Nonetheless, the Trojans cannot afford to underestimate the Wildcats. In recent clashes, Arizona has proven to be a formidable opponent, and they would relish the opportunity to mar USC’s otherwise unblemished season. USC must approach this game with the same level of seriousness as any other matchup, remaining vigilant and prepared. With their eyes set on reaching the College Football Playoff, they cannot allow any slip-ups in their schedule.
“The Wildcats have given the Trojans trouble in the past couple seasons. Arizona has covered three straight games in the series, keeping USC within one score in each of those affairs. The last time Arizona visited LA Memorial Coliseum, in 2021, the Wildcats lost to USC 41-34 as 21.5-point underdogs.”
As the Trojans gear up to face the Arizona Wildcats, all eyes are on their performance. After a hard-fought victory against Colorado, USC hopes to redeem themselves and showcase their true potential on the field. With history in their favor, they embark on this crucial game with a sense of determination, fully aware of the challenges that lie ahead.
