No. 4 USC will host Texas on Saturday night for a highly anticipated matchup. Here is the TV schedule, a full preview and some predictions.

Week 3 of the college football season brings another vital matchup for USC. The Trojans have already played Western Michigan and Stanford, winning both games to give them a 2-0 record. They struggled out of the gate against Western Michigan, but QB Sam Darnold and RB Ronald Jones II found a way to bring them back for the win. USC took care of business against Stanford, winning the game handily, 42-24.

On the other hand, Texas started out with a loss to Maryland, 51-41, and then thrashed San Jose State, 56-0. Tom Herman’s debut with the Longhorns has been shaky thus far, with their opening day loss coming as a shock to many. Herman’s comments after the game created a stir as well, claiming that Texas won’t be rebuilt overnight.

Texas-USC is one of the matchups that college football fans always look forward to. No matter how competitive either team is or what their record is, it’s guaranteed to be a good game. Here’s the TV schedule and betting odds for the Texas vs. USC matchup on Saturday:
