No. 20 USC-Utah live stream (11/21): How to watch college football online, TV, time  11/22/2020 00:37:00   Mark Heim |

The third time is a charm when No. 20 USC meets Utah on Saturday, Nov. 21. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

The defending Pac-12 South champions will finally begin their season. Utah remains the last team from the conference to begin the season after having two cancellations due to COVID-19 issues.

The Utes were scheduled to play Arizona two weeks ago and at UCLA last weekend before the Pac-12 canceled those games due to positive cases at Utah. The team is trying to remain focused through the uncertain season.

The Trojans (2-0, 2-0 Pac-12) enter with momentum after rallying to wins against Arizona State and then at Arizona. Before the season, USC was picked as the favorite to end Utahs reign as South champion.

Here the thing: USC doesnt know all that much about Utah. The Utes list Jake Bentley, Cameron Rising and Drew Lisk all as their No. 1 QB on the depth chart. They also have a new running back stepping in for Zack Moss -- four of them, actually -- and a revamped defense.

The game starts at 9:30 p.m. (10:30 p.m. ET) and will be live streamed on fuboTV, which offers a 7-day free trial. ESPN will televise the game.


SLOVIS TIME: USC QB Kedon Slovis saves his best for the last quarter. Over his career, hes thrown 11 TDs passes and no interceptions in the fourth quarter, according to the league.

Last weekend, Slovis was 13 of 15 for 143 yards and a TD in the fourth to rally the Trojans.

When the moment gets big, he doesnt panic. He doesnt get tight, USC offensive coordinator Graham Harrell said. He just goes in there and does his job and expects to win, and thats whats happened the last two weeks, and thats been really good for him.

QUICK HITS: The last time Utah started a season this late was Nov. 28, 1895, against the Salt Lake City YMCA. The Utes lost 20-0. ... The Trojans have dropped three straight at Rice-Eccles Stadium. ... The Utes are 70-24 in Salt Lake City under Whittingham. ... USC holds a 12-6 record over Utah.

WEATHER REPORT: Given the late start time, weather could be a factor as the low is expected to be around 26 degrees. The coldest game in USC history was 20 degrees and in the snow during a loss at Notre Dame in 1957.

USC is 13-12-1 in cold weather games, which are described as when the temperature had enough of an impact on the contest that it was mentioned in the medias recap. The last cold weather contest for the Trojans was at Colorado in 2019, which they won 35-31 with the temperatures in the mid-40s.

CROWDED BACKFIELD: To replace Moss, the schools all-time leading rusher, the Utes still plan on utilizing a four-back rotation. Jordan Wilmore, Devin Brumfield, Micah Bernard and freshman Ty Jordan will all see action.

We all are there to push each other and make each other better, Brumfield said.

SECONDARY SKILLS: The extra practice sessions have helped with the growth of Utahs young secondary.

At least, those who could practice.

It has been a little bit of a double-edged sword where guys are getting better, but then guys that need reps are unavailable for practice, Whittingham said. We feel that we have made progress, but we still dont know what we have. We havent lined up against anybody yet. As far as their techniques, their skill and them grasping the schemes, we are getting better on a daily basis.
