CORVALLIS, Ore. - Top-ranked Southern Cal is a 25-point favorite over Oregon State tomorrow night, but they have had some long football Saturdays themselves recently at Reser Stadium.
Oregon State has beaten them two out of the last three games there including s huge 33-31 upset in 2006, breaking the Trojans' 38-game regular season winning streak. Oregon State also won at home in 2000.
Undefeated USC beat Virginia 52-7 and Number 14 Ohio State 35-to-3 this year.
Oregon State lost at Stanford and at No. 12 Penn State before beating Hawaii 45-7 on September 13, its home opener.
By some thinking the PAC-10 is not at its best this year. Pac-10 schools are winless in five games against Mountain West Conference schools and are 12-12 in nonconference games.
