OK, it’s time for me to pick a winner in today’s game at the Coliseum. Utah suffered a letdown after it upset Stanford. Perhaps more important, the Utes have not won in Los Angeles since 1916.
QB Travis Wilson (above) is not 100 percent because of a hand injury but USC’s also got numerous injuries and will start Josh Shaw at cornerback. I expect a close game but in the end, I think the Trojans will edge the Utes, 23-20.
