USC (3-3, 2-2 Pac-12) shredded one of the nation's top defenses for 539 yards, but Colorado's takeaways kept an otherwise one-sided game close. In the Buffaloes' first game as a ranked team since Nov. 7, 2005, receiver Bryce Bobo threw a 67-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter and caught a tying TD pass with 10:20 to play.

It is only the second time USC has faced a ranked Buffalo team.

It’s just the sixth time that Troy has played a Friday game since 1990 (the Trojans have won the past 5). For the second time this year, USC is looking to bounce back from a loss to an AP Top 10 team, this time after falling this past Saturday at No. 7 Stanford. Faced with the nation’s toughest schedule, the Trojans will be playing their third AP Top 25 team in 4 games this year (all away from home). USC’s decisive home win over No. 3 Utah last fall came a year after its last-second road loss to the Utes.

The Trojans and Cardinal met twice last fall, both Stanford victories, including in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Stanford has won 6 of the last 8 meetings, but USC won in its most recent visit to Palo Alto (the Trojans have lost just 5 times there since 1972). Before last year’s Pac-12 Championship Game clash, the previous 6 meetings were decided by 10 points or less. Stanford is Troy’s oldest rival (the first game was in 1905).
