In the seventh game of the Coach Orgeron era, the Trojans will look to keep alive its 7-0 streak against the Colorado Buffaloes which dates back to their first meeting in 1927 from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. USC has a 245-127-20 (.651) all-time record in November, and is perfect in three games this season.
The Buffaloes feature one of the nation's premier pass catchers in WR Paul Richardson. He owns school records for receptions and receiving yards in a game. True freshman QB Sefo Liufau took over the CU offense mid-season and has been effective.
Colorado's defense has struggled, as it ranks in the nation's bottom 25 in total defense, scoring defense and rushing defense. LB Addison Gillam, just a freshman, and S Parker Orms are among the national leaders in tackles, while CB Greg Henderson ranks high in deflections and interceptions. PK Will Oliver is 13th in the country in field goals.
The now No. 23 USC Trojans enter this game with plenty of confidence and will look to reestablish its dominant running game in what should be hostile weather conditions. USC has not played in snow since 1957 but something suggests this will change tonight for the Trojans, who take on the four-win Buffaloes squad coming off its first Pac-12 victory.

FACTS: This Nov. 23 USC-Colorado game marks the latest date that any team from the Pacific Time Zone has visited Boulder. Stanford played Colorado in Denver on Nov. 25, 1904. Fifty years ago to the day, USC’s Nov. 23rd game against UCLA was postponed a week because of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy the previous day.
