The country will be watching this game. Everyone college football analyst is picking the Trojans to beat the Buffaloes this Saturday. They`re talking about tradition, the greats and the mystic of USC in this game. “It`s only right that the Trojans set the record straight and change their season against Colorado!”, one analyst said. Truth is .. “It won`t happen fella!” The Buffaloes are for real. The team hasn`t had a rank in over a decade and this year they have a complete team across the board. Just ask Michigan! “Every team thats left to play can beat us, and we can beat every team that`s left to play!”, said Colorado`s head coach Mike MacIntyre.

Offense
Steven Montez played like a season vet in the two wins against Oregon State and Oregon. His stats were 293 yards through the air against Oregon State and 333 yards and 3 scores against Oregon. He also rushed for 163 yards and 2 scores during the two game span. Sefo Liufau has been out for the past 2 weeks but there’s no need to rush him back. Steven Montez is playing lights out which has a lot of the Buffaloes thinking there’s a quarterback controversy brewing under center.

Defense
Sam Darnold commands a lot of attention for the Trojans offense. He`s a 6’4, 225 pound dynamo under center. His main target is JuJu Smith-Schuster who is the prototypical wide out with power and speed. He could be a nightmare if he starts off hot. His team leading 5 touchdowns on 26 receptions has defensive coordinators changing defensive strategies weeks before they play him. He`s the college version of “Megatron”! Senior running back Justin Davis has carried the ball 61 times this year as the Trojans featured back. His thunder style of running chews up the clock at crucial times. He basically wears the defense out in the later stages of the games. The Buffaloes has to control the line of scrimmage from the beginning to the end of the game.

My Prediction
With all of the Trojan tradition and all of the footballs teams lure. That won`t be able to help the Trojans this Saturday. I`m picking Colorado by 12 in this game. I the football critics will drop the ball on the 3 yard line with 1 second left on this one!
