USC wins if: Its offense doesn’t hesitate to run the ball against the nation’s worst-ranked rush defense. … Sam Darnold continues his hot streak, with 15 touchdowns to three interceptions in the past six games. … The Trojans’ defense is able to pressure and fluster Rosen, who was sacked three times and picked off twice in their last matchup in 2015.
