Coming off a National University Holiday Bowl victory over Nebraska and a 9-4 season, the USC Trojans are one of the top 10 teams in the country heading into the 2015-2016 season. According to the odds released by Bovada earlier today, there are only nine teams with better odds of hoisting the national championship trophy next season.

USC's way-too-early odds have them at 20/1 -- second best in the Pac-12. Oregon again tops the list for the conference with 14/1 odds. The Ducks trail only Ohio State (6/1), TCU (15/2) and Alabama (10/1). UCLA and Stanford are both sitting at 33/1 while the Arizona schools have 40/1 odds.

There are three other Pac-12 teams listed with Utah having 66/1 odds, Cal and Oregon State at 100/1. One other team of note is USC's interstitial rival, Notre Dame. The Irish have the same 20/1 odds as the Trojans.
