Fredi Knighten can make things happen for Arkansas State at USC.
LAS VEGAS -- This is one of the better USC teams we've seen in a while. It's loaded with talent at each position. Arkansas State is clearly outmatched here in terms of size and speed, but dual-threat QB Fredi Knighten gives these underdogs a chance to put some points on the board. The big total of 70 suggests what the Red Wolves are capable of. Last year, they averaged 36 points and 476 yards per game. They also gave up 30 points per contest. USC's offense will be clicking, but four TDs is a lot to cover. In four of the past five seasons, USC has been a favorite of 21 points or more in its season opener, and the dog has covered in all four. Arkansas State +28 is the play.
