Win Division (+153), Win Conference (+485)
SSA Model Pick: Division (Medium Confidence)
Darnold has departed, but that’s not a good reason to think this team will regress. USC recruits near the top of the nation and talent is something they don’t lack. Coming off of a Pac-12 title last season, the Trojans should contend for the title once again this year.
Win Total Analysis
8.5 wins (-115/-105)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
Non-conference games against Texas and Notre Dame mean that the Trojans can go 8-4 and win the Pac-12 South. While this team is clearly the best team in the South, they are beatable and it will be difficult for Helton to get to another 10 win season.
