College Football Friday: Southern Cal Visits Colorado in Tonight’s Only Game

Our “other favorite team” — Colorado this week — plays tonight at home in a #Pac12AfterDark matchup.

Last night’s game between the SMU Mustangs and the Houston Cougars proved to be closer than most would have expected, but the 34-31 final score means that SMU is now 8-0.

There’s only one game on the schedule tonight, but it’s one which should really interest Bruin fans. Of course, with tonight’s game featuring the Southern Cal Trojans at the Colorado Buffaloes, it means that the Buffs are our other favorite team this week. At the same time, Colorado visits the Rose Bowl next week to play UCLA.

Southern Cal is 0-3 on the road so far this season, which doesn’t bode well for tonight’s #Pac12AfterDark matchup.

On the other hand, Colorado has given up more than 30 points in each of their four conference games so far. The real question is: which Colorado offense will show up tonight? Will it be the one which scored 34 points against both Nebraska and Arizona State and 52 against Colorado State or will it be the one which has struggled to score against Oregon, Washington State and Air Force?

Let’s hope the Buffs can score lots of points against the Southern Cal defense.

Tonight’s game kicks off at 6 pm PT on ESPN2.

This is your College Football Friday open thread.

Go Bruins!! And, go Buffs!
