You can finally plan your Saturday night. USC has announced that the Trojans’ November 23rd game at Colorado will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. Pacific, 7:30 p.m. local time in Boulder, on the Pac-12 Networks. It will be the first ever USC road football game to be televised on the conference’s prized network.
Ed Orgeron’s Trojans, who have won four games on the bounce and five of six since the sacking of Lane Kiffin, will be bringing a boatload of cold weather gear for the nighttime tilt.
According to Weather.com, the forecast in Boulder calls for 40 degree weather on a partly-cloudy day, with a low of 28. It’s expected to snow on Thursday, and carry into Friday.
The Buffs come into the game fresh off of their first Pac-12 win of the Mike MacIntyre era, as they beat the hapless Cal Bears 41-24 in Boulder, on Saturday.
Historically, the Trojans have had a good edge on Colorado. USC is 7-0 all-time against CU, and have held the Buffs to six or fewer points in four of those contests, including a 40-3 win in Boulder over a ranked and Big 12 defending champion Colorado team, back in 2002.
Since the Buffs joined the Pac-12 conference in 2011, USC has taken advantage of a struggling Colorado program. The Trojans have taken the two conference games by a combined score of 92-23.
