On tonight's NCAA football 2013 live stream and TV schedule there's just one game for college football fans and it arrives from the Pac-12. The USC Trojans will look to keep their bowl chances alive with a win, while the home team, Oregon State, will try to bounce back from their loss to Stanford, and keep hope alive for a Pac-12 title. The latest TV and live streaming NCAA football game will arrive thanks to ESPN for sports fans across the country.
The Oregon Live site reported on Oct. 31 about this anticipated Pac-12 matchup between Oregon State and USC, giving their top five aspects of the game to watch for. The site reported that the Trojans had defeated the Beavers 26 times in a row between 1968 and 1999. However, OSU has owned USC in recent times, with three wins all at Reser Stadium for the Beavers (2006, 2008 and 2010). It all comes down to the noise factor that the stadium's rowdy home fans present, which will make things tough on USC in this spotlight game on ESPN.
The Beavers come into this game suffering last weekend's home loss to Stanford 20-12. Prior to that, they were among the hottest teams in the nation after winning six straight to break into the top 25 polls. The Stanford loss has since knocked them out of the polls, but they still have an outside shot at winning the Pac-12 title. Oregon State is the top passing team in the nation, as they average 420.8 yards a game, thanks to the "Mannion-to-Cooks" connection. While those two were held back last game, it could be time for them to get things going at home tonight.
On the other hand, USC at 5-3 is basically fighting for a potential bowl game, and a road win at Oregon State would help with that cause. While the Beavers rank 15th in the nation in scoring, USC is one of the top 20 defensive squads, ranking at 16th and holding opponents to an average of 19.3 points a game. The Trojans had a 19-3 win over Utah at home last weekend, but have lost to Notre Dame, Arizona State and Washington State this season. They'll be playing against Stanford and UCLA, both of whom are ranked, in the last three weeks of their season.
Oregon State is favored to win tonight by as much as 5 points at some sports books, while the over/under is set at 52 1/2 total points for the game. USC wide receiver Marquise Lee is listed as probable for the game, while weather reports indicate mostly cloudy skies, a 40% chance of rain late, and a kickoff temperature in the high 50's.
Friday night's game between University of Southern California and Oregon State has a start time of 9 p.m. EST. ESPN2 will televise the game in standard and hi-definition for viewers of cable and satellite TV. Additionally, there are some cable and satellite companies associated with the WatchESPN live streaming service online, which is free to those specific companies' customers in many regions of the country.
