USC at Colorado
Friday, November 4th, 9:00 ET
How will Southern Cal respond to Saturday night’s triple overtime loss to Stanford? We’ll get to find out a bit earlier than normal as the Trojans face what typically would be a difficult spot, hitting the conference road Friday night. Fortunately for Lane Kiffin’s team, the opponent will be Colorado, who has been absolutely abysmal in their inaugural year in the Pac 12.
USC came very close to handing #5 Stanford its first loss of the season at the Coliseum Saturday night, losing 56-48 in three overtimes. It was a brutal beat for college football bettors who had the Trojans +7.5 as they were covering the entire game, but with the rules dictating that a team must go for the two-point conversion once the game reaches a third overtime, the Cardinal converted and USC could not answer, fumbling into the end zone.
Normally, you would expect a major letdown spot for Southern Cal in their next game, but instead we find them as a three-touchdown favorite on the road. This is only because they will be facing a terrible Colorado team that is capable of not allowing the Trojans to have a letdown. The Buffalos enter Friday on a 0-6 SU/ATS losing streak with the last four losses coming by an average of 36.5 PPG.
Last week saw CU continue its atrocious string of performances on the road, losing at Arizona State 48-14 as 32.5-point dogs. It was their 22nd straight loss in a “true” road game.
Although, the Buffs only win this season came against Colorado State on a neutral field, they have played much better at home with the exception of their last game in Boulder, a 45-2 loss to Oregon. Earlier in the year, they lost by only a combined seven points to California and Washington State at Folsom Field.
After being an underdog in its last two games, USC is back to the role of favorite where they have gone 3-2 ATS thus far. However, they are just 1-2 ATS as double digit chalk, including a poor 19-17 showing in the opener against Minnesota in the only other game they were favored by at least 20 points.
With this being Colorado’s first year in the Pac 12, there are not many recent meetings to build off. However, USC is the only school to have played CU at least four times and never lost. The last meeting came in 2002 during the Pete Carroll heyday and saw the Trojans win 40-3 with a 22-4 first down edge and 425-61 edge in total yards.
