Texas vs. USC is a match-up between two of the sport's most storied programs, and both teams have a ton to prove this Saturday.

USC fell to Stanford last week, but stick around in the Top 25 at No. 22. Quarterback JT Daniels has very high upside, but he's taking his lumps as a true freshman starter.

Texas also sits at 1-1, and fans are starting to get a bit impatient with the Tom Herman era. After losing at Maryland in Week 1, the Longhorns snuck past Tulsa last week, 28-21.

ESPN's FPI prediction for Texas vs. USC is out.

Texas is a 3.5-point favorite in Las Vegas, and has a similar edge here. FPI gives the Longhorns a 55.9-percent chance to win.
