TV: 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC. LINE: USC -4

ABOUT USC (2-0): Perhaps even more impressive then Slovis' passing stats against Stanford was his poise as the Trojans fell behind 17-3 in the second quarter before the 6-foot-2 18-year-old rallied USC to score 42 of the game's final 45 points. Slovis has one of the nation's top wide receiving corps to throw to, led by junior Tyler Vaughns (16 catches, 256 yards, 1 TD), sophomore Amon-Ra St. Brown (13-135-2) and senior Michael Pittman Jr. (12-110-0) while junior Vavae Malepeai is averaging 88.0 yards per game on the ground and has scored three touchdowns. Safety Talanoa Hufanga and linebacker John Houston lead the defense with 18 tackles apiece while sophomore corner Olaijah Griffin has five pass breakups.

ABOUT BYU (1-1): Sophomore quarterback Zach Wilson, despite getting sacked four times and facing constant pressure from the Vols' defense, completed 19-of-29 passes for 232 yards and a touchdown at Tennessee and hit wide receiver Micah Simon with a 64-yard pass on 3rd-and-6 from the BYU 20 in the final minute to set up Jake Oldroyd's 33-yard field goal that sent the game into overtime. Ty'Son Williams, a grad transfer from South Carolina, rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries including a five-yard TD run in the second overtime to win it. "You definitely want to enjoy (the win over Tennessee) but after today we have to lock down and get focused on USC," Williams told the Deseret News. "That's a great team we have coming in. We want to protect LaVell's house, so we look forward to next week's challenge and trying to get another victory."
