USC Trojans.

The USC Trojans are finally looking to put the penalties of probation behind them this year. Over time, this Football program has been one of the best in the history of college football. Few programs can boast about as many national championships or Heisman trophy winners. However, since Pete Carrol left for the NFL, the Trojans have had a hard time bouncing back. Now is the time for USC to stand up and beat a major opponent.

Alabama.

Alabama is a program that just keeps reloading. There are few examples from college football history of a program that has been dominant for this long. Often times, when one player leaves the program after a string of success, the program never returns back to the point where it was. However, they keep signing the best recruiting classes every year, and this furthers their success. This team may not be as good as previous teams, but they do have a lot to show the college football world in week 1.

Although USC will give Alabama a good fight, over the course of the game the talent and experience of the Crimson tide will wear out this Trojan team.

I expect that the game will be close early, but over time USC will falter.
