    USC Trojans vs. Cal Golden Bears (-4, 58), 11 p.m. ET

    Burke: Rightfully buried after the conference championship games is some #Pac12AfterDark between USC and Cal. These two teams were supposed to play back on Nov. 13, but a major COVID outbreak for the Golden Bears pushed the game back to Dec. 4.

    The big news at USC is that Lincoln Riley is now in town, so weíll see if that puts any pep in the steps of the Trojans. Given that everything as they know it will change, it may not really have any bearing on their effort level. For Cal, with the reports that Kalen DeBoer is the new Washington head coach, the Bears wonít have to worry about Justin Wilcox going anywhere.

    This is a pretty easy handicap for me, and it will be to play the over. Offensive players are always going to worry about padding their stats in hoping to impress scouts at the next level or put a stamp on the season by hitting some personal accolades. In games that donít have high stakes, offenses usually rules over defense. The more important the game, the tighter the game ends up being. This one may just be an outright track meet, as both teams are 4-7 and the mantra will be to go out there and have fun.

    USC ranks 119th in red zone defense going into this week, so Calís offense should be able to cash in on those opportunities inside the 20, which is something that has been a problem most of the year. The USC defense is also 113th in yards per play allowed, so Cal should be able to move the ball.

    OC Graham Harrell will probably just let it all hang out for USC, whether Kedon Slovis or Jaxson Dart gets the call. Calís defense has played well this season, but guys may just be looking for the big plays here. USCís offense should be invested, given that both QBs are likely to return, unless one transfers, and the top receivers are all looking to be the Drake London replacements for next season.

    Pick: Over 58

    Both teams are probably lucky to be playing for the MAC Championship this week in Detroit. Kent State ranks 124th out of 130 teams in total defense (474.6 yards per game) and allows 34.6 PPG. Nevertheless, the Golden Flashes rank second in the nation in turnover margin (+ 15; 24 takeaways). Meanwhile, Northern Illinois has had its fair share of good fortune. Despite having a defense that allows 452.4 yards and 33.5 PPG, the Huskies went 8-4 and exceeded all expectations. NIUís success this season simply comes down to breaks on fourth down. The Huskies rate No. 1 in the nation for fourth down conversions at 19-for-23 (82.6 percent). They also rank top 25 nationally on defense against fourth down by only allowing opponents to convert 40 percent.

    Kent State (-3.5), 5-1 ATS this season as a favorite, defeated Northern Illinois 52-47 on Nov. 3 and both teams eclipsed 600 yards of offense, but Kentís 31-point second quarter led to ending a 10-game losing streak in the series.

    Pick: Over 74
