USC Football plays on Friday this week as opposed to Saturday, and is going to be playing on a brisk evening. It's a 7:30 p.m. PT game, so it's not too surprising that the fans and players will be a little chilly this week.
Heck, the high is to happen during the day on Friday and is at 68 degrees Fahrenheit (all weather information in article is as of The Weather Channel), but the low isn't going to be so exciting. The low for Friday is set to be at 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Thankfully, there will be no rain on Friday, though. The chance of precipitation is 2% during the day and still only 4% at night.
The Trojans will be playing in cooler weather this week then they usually have so far this year, but it's undoubtedly a heck of a lot better than having to play in Boulder. If this game agaisnt Colorado was on the road, it would be much more frigid, and a climate the CU players are just much more accustomed to than the Trojans.
This could potentially be the coldest game SC plays in for the remainder of the year, as their next two games are going to be against much better opponents (UCLA and Notre Dame), which could draw those contests to starting at earlier times in the day. And the Notre Dame game will be at the Coliseum, so there's no worries of snow or anything like that with the rivalry matchup this season.
Regardless of weather, though, USC Football would likely beat Colorado.
USC Football is 8-1 for a reason. Colorado is 1-8 for a reason. The Trojans are scoring 41 points per game, which is seventh in the entire country. Colorado, on the other hand, is scoring 15.6 points per game which is third-to-last in the country. Even a blizzard wouldn't prevent this SC offense from running away with this game, as the Buffaloes are even worse on defense than they are on offense.
The Buffs have surrendered 40.22 points per game on the year, which is second-to-last in the nation. There really shouldn't be any excuses in this one. SC should win it easily, and should blow them out, at least as long as they get healthy this week.
That will be a tough task on a short week, but Lincoln Riley at least made it very clear that Addison was "close" to playing this past week. If he's back, expect him to have a Biletnikoff-level performance this game.
