Poll: How will Virginia fare at No. 16 Southern California

NCAA sanctions might prohibit Virginia's opponent on Saturday -- No. 16 Southern California -- from being eligible for postseason play this season, but that doesn't make the Trojans any less daunting to face.

Between a high-octane offense that features quarterback Matt Barkley, wide receiver Ronald Johnson and tailback Marc Tyler and a defense that will be looking to attone for last week's porous effort against Hawaii, USC will have plenty of weapons and motivation at its disposal during first-year Coach Lane Kiffin's home debut.

But Virginia is coming off a season-opening win in which the new pro-style offense and 4-3 defense garnered positive reviews. The Cavaliers will have some momentum -- and better yet, some confidence -- heading into Saturday night's contest at the L.A. Coliseum. So, what do you think?

This year's score won't be as lop-sided as the last meeting. This year USC 35 UV 14.
