ESPN's Pat Forde has released his predictions for all the upcoming bowl games. He predicts a 17-9 USC victory in the Emerald Bowl. One interesting tidbit form his write-up: According to Phil Steele's 2009 College Football Preview ratings, Boston College does not have a single player who was in the national top 20 prospects at his position coming out of high school. USC has 50. Yes, 50.A pretty startling difference between the two programs. Just goes to show how one team has over-achieved and the other has under-achieved.
