The Colorado Buffaloes will play the USC Trojans in a PAC-12 Game on Friday night at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

The Colorado Buffaloes are 1-8 (1-5) this season after they lost to Oregon by a score of 49-10 in their last game. Colorado gained 367 total yards, but turned the ball over three times and had three turnovers on downs in the loss. The Colorado offense is averaging 15.6 points per game with 189.4 passing yards per game and 113.8 rushing yards per game. J.T. Shrout has thrown for 976 yards, six touchdowns, and six interceptions for the Buffaloes this season. Deion Smith (questionable) has rushed for 381 yards and two touchdowns, while Daniel Arias has caught 19 passes for 309 yards and one touchdown for Colorado. The Colorado defense is giving up 40.2 points per game and 483.2 yards per game.

The USC Trojans are 8-1 (6-1) this season after they defeated California by a score of 41-35 in their last game. USC gained 515 total yards and forced one turnover in the win. The USC offense is averaging 41 points per game with 313.7 passing yards per game and 182.2 rushing yards per game. Caleb Williams has thrown for 2,742 yards, 28 touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 287 yards and four touchdowns for the Trojans this season. Travis Dye has rushed for 858 yards and nine scores, while Jordan Addison (questionable) has caught 39 passes for 585 yards and seven touchdowns for USC. The USC defense is allowing 25.2 points per game and 409.2 yards per game.

Colorado is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games on grass and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The over is 4-0 in Colorado’s last 4 road games. USC is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 November games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Friday games. The over is 9-2 in USC’s last 11 home games. The home team is 6-2-1 ATS in these two team's last 9 head-to-head meetings.

USC comes into this game in second place in the PAC-12 standings, while Colorado is at the bottom of the standings with only one conference win. Colorado just lost by 39 points to Oregon, and I expect USC to score a bunch of points as well. USC’s defense has not been very good in their last three games, but Colorado shouldn’t be able to threaten them. I like the under in this game.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
