This is it for the regular season. WIll have bowl selections up as they arrive. Can't spend too much time here because I'm off to Paris and Rome tomorrow, but will be checking scores at LAX....

USC -21 vs. Oregon State

I'm not jumping off the USC pointspread bandwagon (steamroller) now, so take USC -21. They are vastly superior to any team OSU has played this year, offensively and defensively. OSU has shown time and again it can't handle playing with the big boys. Sure they have lots of weapons, but with Derrick Anderson at the helm, you can expect USC to score at least 17 points off turnovers. And since USC rarely turns over the ball...(Matt Leinert has 20 TD's and 0 Interceptions in past six games), that is a free 17 points!

My only concern here is USC has been playing their 2nd and 3rd stringers early in the 2nd half the past two games, which means either the offense stops scoring, or the defense allows the other team to score. So back door cover always a threat with this many points.

USC should continue to steamroll its way into the Orange Bowl. Oregon State will be lucky to get to 20, and even if they hit that mark, you know USC will score at least 43 or more, as they do every week.

Final Score: USC 47 - OSU 19

Good luck to all of you this week-end...I'm truly sad to see the end of another fine college football season, but hey, still got the bowls.
