USC vs Colorado match preview
Why Colorado will win
The USC defense can be hammered.
Run defense was the problem in the first half of the season, the runners-up have been suffering for the last three weeks and worst of all, the takeaways have slowed down after making up for mistakes with many, many big games early on.
Colorado might not be having a lot of fun, but the passing game built up yards and the ground attack didn’t the awful.
Turnovers are a big concern, but again, USC’s D has slowed in the last five games with four takeaways after hitting 16 in the first four weeks.

Why USC will win
The offensive is relentless.
The defense can get hit or miss, and the O can go some stretch if it takes a little nap, but Caleb Williams throws for over 300 yards, the running game runs nearly six yards per carry and the offense has the ability to get out of that quickly to bring range.
Colorado is last in the nation in third down stops and second worst against the run. It was a little better after a brutal start, but it’s still a problem.
USC won’t take many risks. It will run, let the offensive line take over, and the O, who has only turned the ball twice so far – the first losing fumble of the season came against Cal last week – will not give the buff D any rest.

What will happen
It’s USC, so there will be moments when the team loses focus and Colorado looks like it can play.
And then the Trojan offensive begins.
This will be the calm before the storm. USC gets UCLA, then Notre Dame, and if all goes well, a shot at the Pac-12 title and then a place in the College Football Playoffs.
Style points now count. There will be many of them.
