All things being equal, both teams playing to potential, USC is 10-14 points better than PSU. Why? Because although PSU's defense is good enough to slow USC's offense some, USC's defense is better than PSU's offense. I have this one as probably in the 24-28 ish USC 10-13ish PSU range.

Even if PSU wins, and I hope they do, rather than the big ten gaining respect the media will just end up talking about USC's "off day"
