Week 6 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Pac-12 showdown between the Washington State Cougars and No. 6 USC Trojans. The Cougars hope to continue their momentum after defeating the rival California Golden Bears 28-9 last week.
On the other hand, USC continued its perfect campaign thanks to a 42-25 blowout victory over Arizona State. Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams paced the way with 348 passing yards and a trio of touchdowns through the air, also running the ball into the end zone once as well.

Washington State vs USC Prediction & Pick
The three guarantees in life are death, taxes and USC getting the better of Washington State. The two rivals have met 75 times over the years, resulting in 61 victories for the Trojans. Furthermore, USC has won three straight games against Washington State, including the last two by a combined score of 83-27.
This year shouldn't see a different result. The passing game has been Washington State's bread and butter, but USC is only giving up 204.2 passing yards per game (No. 31). With the Cougars' run game not being anything special, I have a tough time imagining they'll get anything going on the road.
At the end of the day, USC's top-10 offense will put Washington State to bed early on and not look back.
Final Score Prediction: USC: 35 | Washington State: 20

Again, this is USC's game to lose. The Trojans are 3-0 against the Pac-12 this season for a reason and the Cougars shouldn't give them much of a reason to worry. Considering how USC has won the last two meetings in quite a lopsided fashion, I'm inclined to back the Trojans on the spread once again.
Bet: USC -12.5 (-115)
