Blitzalytics Analysis


Line Iowa (-2) Over/Under 52 Against the Spread - Iowa (5-7) USC (7-5)


Both teams come into this game winning their last three contests. It will be a battle of opposites in this match-up as USC has a significantly better offense than Iowa but the Hawkeyes have a much tougher defense than the Trojans. Both teams are the epitome of their respective conferences. There is some concern on both teams about the injury list. Especially for USC. Both teams have a hard time against ranked opponents as they are a combined 2-5. Although, of the five losses, four were within a score.


The Degenerate Menace Says: USC is the brand name in this match-up and it would make sense that they would be picked to win this game against a dull Iowa team. However, this will be the toughest defense that the Trojans have faced so far. Another concern is the tremendous amount of injuries that USC is facing. The computer thinks that the Hawkeyes will take care of USC but not by much.


Prediction: Iowa 24 - USC 21
