What to Know
The USC Trojans will host the Nevada Wolf Pack to start their respective 2023 campaigns. Kickoff is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. ET on September 2nd at United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Nevada were ranked 113th in the nation in passing yards last season, having averaged a brutal 185.4 per game. USC, on the other hand, had no problems: they finished last season ranked third with 335.4 per game.
Nevada will be fighting an uphill battle on Saturday as the experts have pegged them as the 38-point underdog. They finished last season with a mediocre 4-8 record against the spread, so bettors beware.
Nevada is expected to open their campaign with a loss, which is bad news given the team’s less-than-stellar 1-7 record as the underdog last season. While their fans probably aren’t happy about it, betting on the team to lose was the smart play last year, and bettors who put $100 on that outcome every game finished the season up $1,346.93. On the other hand, USC will play as the favorite, and the team was 10-1 as such last season.
USC is a big 38-point favorite against Nevada, according to the latest college football odds.
The oddsmakers are expecting fireworks from the offense and set the over/under at a high 66.5 points.
