247’s pick stays the same for the third consecutive week, as does CBS Sports. While ESPN’s Bonagura remains with his PSU-USC in the Fiesta selection, Schlabach changes their Peach Bowl opponent to match CBS Sports. Considering how USC’s defense played against Colorado, Penn State would certainly stand a chance against the Trojans.
