Cal Vs. USC 2012: Game Time, TV Schedule, Odds And More

The California Golden Bears take on the USC Trojans on Saturday afternoon at the Coliseum, as both come off of pretty devastating losses. Cal saw a winnable game at the Horseshoe slip through their fingers at Ohio State in a 35-28 defeat. USC saw their national championship hopes dealt a severe blow when they were stifled by Stanford for the fourth straight season, losing 21-14 to the Cardinal.

All signs point to USC righting the ship. The Trojans have beaten the Bears in their last eight meetings, and the last three have not been close. USC is at home in what figures to be a must-win game if they have any chance of getting back into the BCS race. Cal will try their best to get back to .500, but they will probably be getting the best effort of a mad Trojan team on the road. It's been rare for the Bears to play two good games in a row, so we'll have to see what the Bears can do.

The game will kickoff around 3 PM PT on the Pac-12 Network (check your cable or satellite provider to see if they carry the channel). USC is favored by 16 to 16.5 points over California.
