No. 14 Utah seeks to continue dominance over Lincoln Riley’s USC

         

Summary: No. 14 Utah will face No. 18 USC in a highly-anticipated Pac-12 matchup. Coach Lincoln Riley looks to avenge last season’s loss to Utah and snap a two-game losing streak against them. Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams aims to bounce back from a tough game against Notre Dame. Utah’s quarterback Cam Rising, who played a key role in their victories over USC last season, is out due to injury. Utah hopes to end their three-game losing streak against ranked opponents on the road.

No. 14 Utah is set to face off against No. 18 Southern California in a highly-anticipated Pac-12 matchup. Utah coach Lincoln Riley, who previously coached at Oklahoma, has a strong track record and rarely loses to the same school twice. However, Utah is the only team that has defeated his squads multiple times, beating his teams in both the regular season and Pac-12 championship game last year.

USC’s quarterback Caleb Williams, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, will be looking for redemption after a disappointing 48-20 loss to Notre Dame in which he threw three interceptions. On the other hand, Utah’s quarterback Cam Rising, who played a pivotal role in their victories over USC last season, is currently sidelined due to a knee injury. Rising threw for a total of 725 yards in the two wins against USC last year.

Utah has struggled in their recent road games against ranked opponents, losing their last three matchups. However, they aim to break this losing streak and showcase their dominance over USC once again.
