LOS ANGELES -- The second-ranked USC Trojans (1-0) travel to take on Syracuse (0-1) in "New York's College Classic" at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The Trojans are coming off a 49-10 season-opening romp over Hawaii. Meanwhile, the Orange lost in a heartbreaker, scoring 28 consecutive second-half points in a dramatic comeback before falling 42-41 on a last-minute Northwestern touchdown.

Scoring: 41.0 points (No. 1 Big East, No. 28 overall)
