USC is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Stanford in triple overtime. Even though there are no moral
victories in college USC did show they are still a premier program and can hang
with the best of the best. This is the first Pac 12 showdown in history between
Colorado and USC.
The offense needs to use their momentum from last week and keep the turnovers to a low
number in order to have success. The offensive line is finally having chemistry
with quality starts. Matt Kalil is proving he deserves all the recognition he
is receiving and true freshman left guard Marcus Martin is proving he belongs
in the starting lineup next to Kalil. Woods and Lee are proving they are one of
the best receiving tandems in the country. USC has also struggled with the run
all year until the last two games where Curtis “Moody” McNeal has given the spark
to the run game they have needed desperately. The Trojans have a chance this
week to put up big numbers and send a message to their remaining opponents that
they are going to finish this season strong and may be able to win out.
The Trojans defense has increased tremendously in the last two weeks.. Even though
Stanford did put up a lot of points against the Trojans, they were able to
prove Andrew Luck is human by pressuring him and in doing so he made a few
mistakes which put them in bad field position at times. Putting pressure on
Colorado with Blitzes and stunts will be key today due to Colorado’s lack of
experience and struggles on the offensive line. They also need to win the
turnover battle and put their offense in good field position. The defense
should have a good game today and should be able to shutdown Buffaloes
offense in every aspect.
