By-The-Numbers: USC

By-The-Numbers is back from seeing Husky Stadium out in style, and quicker than you can say Orenthal James Simpson, the Washington Huskies face yet another team with more offensive juice (that's OJ, to you) than a crooked bookie. Checking out the USC Trojans, their digits are straight vigorish! But that's life in the Pac-12 nowadays. You gotta score points to make it big in the Wild Wild West.
