One of the best under-the-radar games of Week 4 comes in Corvallis, Oregon when No. 7 USC visits Oregon State in a Pac-12 conference matchup. Both teams are undefeated, and both teams are trying to make a statement for different reasons.

In the first year of the Trojans under Lincoln Riley, the offense looks as advertised. USC is averaging 50.7 points per game, which ranks seventh in the country, and quarterback Caleb Williams looks like a real contender for the Heisman Trophy. Defenses looked vulnerable, however, and Oregon State will offer the Trojans their toughest test yet. We will know a lot more about this USC team after this game.

Unlike Riley’s quick rebuild in Los Angeles, Jonathan Smith has been slowly building this Oregon State program since taking over in 2018. Now Smith’s hard work seems to have paid off and the Beavers could compete in the Pac-12 North. Oregon State started the season with quality wins over Boise State and Fresno State before beating Montana State. The only question now is whether the Beavers have enough talent to run four quarters with the Trojans.

See three players

Caleb Williams, USC QB: Williams hasn’t missed a beat since following Riley from Oklahoma to USC. In his first three games with the Trojans, Williams served offense with impressive precision. He has 74.4% of his throws for 874 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions while rushing for 73 yards and two points. Williams initially looked like a real deal, but Oregon state will pose its biggest challenge until the Trojans visit Utah on Oct. 15.

Shane Lee, USC LB: Upon his transfer from Alabama, Lee immediately became a leader of this USC defense. The Trojans’ defense faced a few questions in the first three weeks but held Fresno State at 17 points this past weekend. Lee has so far boasted 3.0 tackles for loss, a sack and an interception. It’s up to Lee and the rest of the Trojans’ defenders to stop against an Oregon State offense that has averaged 34.5 points per game in its two games against FBS opponents.

Chance Nolan, Oregon State QB: Nolan has proven to be a reliable starting quarterback for the Beavers, and it seems he’s made a step up this season. Nolan averaged just under 250 passing yards per game with seven touchdowns and two interceptions in the first three games of the year. If Oregon State wants to upset USC in Corvallis, Nolan will have to make a few plays, especially given the explosive nature of the Trojans’ offense.
