The USC Trojans will head on the road to battle the Colorado Buffaloes in a PAC-12 showdown Friday night from Folsom Field. The USC Trojans enter this one with confidence after snapping a two-game slide with a dominating 41-14 home win against Arizona last week. They own a 3-1 PAC-12 record along with Utah atop the PAC-12 South. The Trojans’ lone conference loss came against Utah. USC is dealing with several injuries. Their rushing leader Vavae Malepeai is out with a knee injury. The Trojans remain out of the AP Top 25 rankings, and they could slide back in with a win in this one. UCS stands at 0-3 on the road.
The Colorado Buffaloes' tough PAC-12 schedule resumes against another strong opponent. The Buffaloes are having a difficult time navigating their conference schedule, compiling a 1-3 record through four games. They have dropped three straight games which involved a rough 41-10 road loss to Washington State last week. Colorado is struggling in both ends of the field, and they hold a 2-2 home record.** Full Analysis and Predictions Coming Wednesday**
