Taking USC here. I faded these guys day 1 against Alabama, but this team is playing some excellent ball lately. And truth be told, the Big 10 hasn't impressed in bowls. Yes we cashed with Indiana and Northwestern, but also fading Ohio State and Michigan in big fashion. Do we think that Penn State is really the cream of the crop from this conference? For the sake of the selection committee, let's hope not. They left a Conference Champion off the playoff roster. No team probably playing with a bigger chip on their shoulder than Penn State. Do they channel teams of past, like the 86 bunch, and the 'fatigue game' vs Miami? I don't hear SC taking that kind of smack. But I just get the feeling that the Lions haven't faced an offense like what they will see out of the Trojans here. 5* Best Bet USC TROJANS
