When: 5 p.m., Saturday,

Where: Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, Texas

TV/Radio: FOX; 710 AM

Records: USC (1-1); Texas (1-1)

Texas stats 

QB Sam Ehlinger: 42-66, 500 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs

RB Tre Watson: 30-126, 0 TD

WR Lil’Jordan Humphrey: 13-191, 1 TD

DL Breckyn Hager: 4 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 pass break-up

CB Kris Boyd: 11 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack, 3 pass break-ups

Texas injury report: OUT: C Zach Shackelford (foot), WR John Burt (foot) DOUBTFUL: RB Keaontay Ingram (knee), OG Patrick Hudson (full-body cramp) PROBABLE: CB Kris Boyd (neck), CB Davante Davis (neck), S Brandon Jones (ankle)

Texas wins if: Quarterback Sam Ehlinger has a repeat of last season’s performance at the Coliseum, where he nearly outdueled Sam Darnold. … The home crowd and potentially rainy weather become factors. … Tom Herman, who went 4-0 against ranked teams while at Houston from 2015-16 and nearly guided the Longhorns to upsets over USC and Oklahoma State last season, has his team eager for the big primetime game.

USC stats 

QB JT Daniels: 37-69, 497 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs

RB Aca’Cedric Ware: 28-159, 1 TD

WR Tyler Vaughns: 10-121, 0 TD

LB Cameron Smith: 16 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 2 pass break-ups

CB Iman Marshall: 8 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 2 pass break-ups

USC injury report: OUT: S Bubba Bolden (undisclosed), TE Daniel Imatorbhebhe (quad), WR Josh Imatorbhebhe (ankle), TE Austin Applebee (mononucleosis) QUESTIONABLE: Palaie Gaoteote (knee), TE Josh Falo (hamstring), NT Liam Jimmons (toe) PROBABLE: QB JT Daniels (hand), TE Josh Falo (hamstring), CB Isaiah Langley (hip/groin)

USC wins if: JT Daniels turns the previous week’s showing at Stanford into an aberration and is better protected in the pocket. … A defensive front, which held Texas to 1.9 yards per rush attempt in last season’s meeting and sacked Ehlinger five times, sees a repeat performance. … The Trojans avoid their recent history in the state of Texas, where they lost their last three games, a 24-7 loss to Ohio State in the 2017 Cotton Bowl, a 52-6 season-opening loss to Alabama in 2016 and a 21-7 loss to Georgia Tech in the 2012 Sun Bowl.


Texas 27, USC 21
