All week, college football fans wondered how Las Vegas could put 3-3 USC, which had fired head coach Steve Sarkisian weeks earlier, as a favorite against undefeated, No. 3 Utah. Last night reiterated to always trust the sportsbooks with these things, as the Trojans crushed Utah 42-24. Quarterback Cody Kessler led the way for USC, completing 21-of-28 passes for 264 yards and a score. This afternoon, he posted a nice Instagram message praising his teammates and the program as a whole.
Yesterday proved just how much talent USC still has, and put a major dent in Utah's College Football Playoff hopes. Whomever takes over the Trojans program next is inheriting one impressive group.
