ESPN's Football Power Index is predicting one major upset during the fourth full weekend of the 2019 college football season.

The Football Power Index has one top 10 team losing to an unranked foe in Week 4.

The upset: USC over No. 10 Utah.

ESPN's Football Power Index likes the Trojans to upset the Utes at home at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Friday night.

No. 10 Utah at USC

Predicted winner: USC, 57.9%

This would be a massive win for Clay Helton, who is believed to be on college football's hottest seat heading into the end of September.

The writing might still be on the wall for Helton regardless of what happens in this game - USC needs a new AD and the new hire will surely want his own coach - but it would be a huge win nonetheless.

Utah and USC are set to kick off at 9 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on FS1.
