Southern California Trojans
The Southern California Trojans may not be playing on their home turf but odds still pick them to prevail. A big reason for that is USC seems to be back on track after a two-game skid. They demolished Arizona at home, 41-14 and own a 3-1 PAC 12 record. Their only loss was against Utah. The Trojans have players dealing with injuries and this includes running back Vavae Malepeai (knee). Likely tasked to step up is Kenan Christon who had a total of 103 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns against the Wildcats. Quarterback Kedon Slovis needs to keep the thing together as well. Last time out, he delivered 19 of 28 throws for 232 yards for a couple of touchdowns.
Players to watch Kedon Slovis QB 103 CMP 140 ATT 1,219 YDS 73.6 CMP% 8.7 AVG 60 LNG 9 TD 4 INT; Vavae Malepeai RB 87 ATT 406 YDS 4.7 AVG 26 LNG; Markese Stepp RB 48 ATT 307 YDS 6.4 AVG 35 LNG; Michael Pittman Jr. WR 43 REC 599 YDS 13.9 AVG 77 LNG; Tyler Vaughns WR 42 REC 534 YDS 12.7 AVG 41 LNG
The Buffaloes are desperate to address their struggles but it appears that will not happen this Friday. They are up against the Trojan squad that seems to have it all together although surprises are not discounted. This is part of their tough PAC-12 schedule where they are now 1-3. They have lost three straight games and hold a 2-2 home record. Steven Montez will need to push himself to improve the chances of Colorado. He averages 34.6 points per outing but has been limited to just 13 the past two weeks. Wide receivers Tony Brown and Laviska Shenault to be on their feet as well if they are to defy the odds.
Players to watch: Steven Montez QB 153 CMP 240 ATT 1,723 YDS 63.8 CMP% 7.2 AVG 96 LNG 10 TD 8 INT; Alex Fontenot RB 114 ATT 568 YDS 5 AVG 32 LNG; Jaren Mangham RB 67 ATT 281 YDS 4.2 AVG 19 LNG; Tony Brown WR 37 REC 480 YDS 13 AVG 49 LNG; Laviska Shenault Jr. WR 25 REC 342 YDS 13.7 AVG 42 LNG
