Utah Utes versus USC Trojans College Football Fantasy Preview 10-24-2015

It will be a PAC 12 conference matchup from college football as the USC Trojans will host the Utah Utes. DFS draft managers can tune to FOX TV at 7:30PM Eastern Time from LA Coliseum on October 24th to follow the results of their roster picks.

When these two teams met last year it was Utah posting the 24-21 victory at home. Utah is 6-0 as they defeated the Arizona St Sun Devils at home last week by the score of 34-18. It was a big fourth quarter for the Utes in the win as they outscored the Sun Devils 20-0. The Utes running game struggled for 72 yards on 31 carries. The team got production from their passing attack throwing for 297 yards. It was nice defensive performance by the Utes by limiting ASU to just 257 yards with only 15 rushing on 28 carries. Utah is 26th best in college football in scoring defense as they limit their opponents to just 19.5 points per game. Offensively the Utes score 36.5 points a game good for 29th best in the nation.

The USC Trojans 2015 season has been a disappointment. They have lost two straight and three of their past four games. The team is 3-3 on the year and has played poorly defensively in losses to Stanford at home and at Notre Dame where the team surrendered 41 points in both games. Last week in the defeat at Notre Dame the Trojans appeared faster and stronger than Notre Dame but were having a difficult time reading the run-option plays that was run. As a result USC was lit up for 214 rushing yards for 6.1 yards per carry. The Trojans did pile up 590 yards of offense but had trouble sustaining drives by going 6 of 16 on third down.
