USC is out for redemption after losing to Utah in Salt Lake City earlier this year, and this time their showdown with the Utes comes with the Pac-12 Championship game on the line.

After losing by just one point on Utah’s home field, the Trojans may not need to make too many changes to emerge victorious on a neutral site.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by ‘Locked On Trojans’ host Marc Kulkin.

We discuss the biggest keys for Lincoln Riley’s team to cement their spot in the College Football Playoff.

Offensively, the Trojans are without RB Travis Dye but still have been able to find success running the ball.

USC has subtly been good (or better) in the trenches over the last few weeks, but still, their defense is highly dependent on turnovers.

Spencer and Mark look at one of the most intriguing position group matchups in the Trojans WRs against the Utes DBs and make their game score predictions as well.
