USC plays California on Thursday night at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
The Trojans and Bears are both coming off a bye week.
USC defeated Washington State, 44-17, on Nov. 1 in Pullman, Wash., and improved to 6-3 overall and 5-2 in the Pac-12 Conference.
Cal, 5-4, 3-4, defeated Oregon State, 45-31, in Corvallis, Ore.
The Trojans have won 10 in a row against the Bears.
