USC vs. Fresno State updates: Live NCAA Football game scores, results for Saturday

The Fresno State Bulldogs fans better hope the squad plays one heck of a game on Saturday as the odds are decidedly against them. They will square off against the USC Trojans at 10:30 p.m. ET at United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. With a combined 997 yards of offense in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced matchup.

It was a hard-fought game, but Fresno State had to settle for a 35-32 defeat against the Oregon State Beavers last week. Fresno State's loss came about despite a quality game from RB Jordan Mims, who rushed for two TDs and 122 yards on 21 carries.

Special teams collected 14 points for the Bulldogs. K Abraham Montano delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.

Meanwhile, USC beat the Stanford Cardinal 41-28 last week. The team ran away with 35 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory. USC relied on the efforts of QB Caleb Williams, who passed for four TDs and 341 yards on 27 attempts, and WR Jordan Addison, who caught seven passes for two TDs and 172 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Addison's 75-yard TD reception in the first quarter.

USC's defense was a presence as well, as it got past Stanford's offensive line to sack QB Tanner McKee five times for a total loss of 35 yards. Leading the way was DL Solomon Byrd and his two sacks. Those were the first sacks for Byrd.

USC's win lifted them to 2-0 while Fresno State's defeat dropped them down to 1-1. We'll see if the Trojans' success rolls on or if the Bulldogs are able to steal their positive momentum.
