SALT LAKE CITY -- After six straight wins to start the season, the third-ranked Utah football team could face their toughest challenge today when they take on the USC Trojans at the LA Coliseum at 5:30 p.m.

USC is just 3-3 this season after losing to Notre Dame last week, but the Trojans have plenty of talent on their roster, and a talented senior quarterback in Cody Kessler leading their offense. The Trojans could be missing two of their top wide receivers, but Adoree Jackson has moved full over full time from defense back to wide receiver. He's a big-time talent, who ran back a kickoff against the Utes last season.

The Utes counter with one of the best defenses in the country. The team is number one in the country with 13 interceptions and number two in the country in turnover margin at plus-12 after forcing six turnovers last week against California.

The Utes offense will depend on running back Devontae Booker. He's third in the Pac-12 with 130 rushing yards per game.

The game will kick off at 5:30 pm. Tune in to Fox 13 at 4:30 p.m. for a special pregame show.
