    Colorado Daily – USC

    November 8th

    … CU in a few minutes …

    Colorado a 14.5-point underdog to USC

    The Buffs, a 22.5-point underdog to UCLA and a 16.0-point underdog to Stanford, open as a 14.5-point underdog to USC, according to vegasinsider.com.

    Other Pac-12 games this weekend:

    – No. 18 UCLA is an 8.5-point favorite at home against Washington State

    – Arizona State is a 3.5-point favorite at home against Washington

    – Cal is an 18.5-point favorite at home against Oregon State

    – No. 10 Utah is a 4.5-point favorite on the road against Arizona

    – No. 7 Stanford is a 9.5-point favorite at home against Oregon

    Colorado remains at No. 11 in latest ESPN Pac-12 power rankings

    From ESPN … the bottom three:

    10: Arizona Wildcats: The Wildcats are in the middle of a three-game skid and have been sitting on five wins since the middle of October. Remember, their bye week is Week 13, so they only have two opportunities left — at home Saturday against Utah and then at ASU — to make the postseason. The Rich Rodriguez-to-(insert school of choice) rumors are also swirling.

    11. Colorado Buffaloes: Not sure what can be said about the Buffs that hasn’t already been said. Yes, they are a better team than last season, but at some point you need to win. The Buffaloes aren’t officially out of the bowl picture, but I wouldn’t bank on the their running off three straight against USC, Washington State and Utah.

    12: Oregon State Beavers: The Beavers are officially eliminated from bowl contention. All that’s left is pride and a search for that first conference win under Gary Andersen. I’m reminded of the scene from “The Lion in Winter:” “When the fall is all there is, it matters.”

    Stanford up two spots in latest AP poll; Utah into the top ten

    Clemson has replaced Ohio State as the No. 1 team in the nation in the latest AP poll. Stanford, 42-10 winners over Colorado, moved up from No. 9 to No. 7, while Utah moved up three spots to No. 10. UCLA, meanwhile, moved up five spots to No. 23.

    CU’s next opponent, USC (7:00 p.m., MT, ESPN2) is 26th in the latest poll. The only other Pac-12 receiving votes is Washington State, in at No. 32 in the poll.

    USC rallies to hand Arizona its third straight loss

    From ESPN … JuJu Smith-Schuster had a plate and a screw surgically installed in the palm of his broken right hand only five days earlier, so Southern California’s star receiver had to make eight catches for 138 yards using “all fingers,” he said with a grin.

    Although the Trojans are all hanging onto the chance for a memorable season by their fingertips, a gritty comeback win over Arizona improved their grip.

    Ronald Jones II caught a touchdown pass and rushed for 177 yards, including a 74-yard scoring run late in USC’s third straight victory, 38-30 over the slumping Wildcats on Saturday night.

    Cody Kessler passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the Trojans (6-3, 4-2 Pac-12) improved to 3-1 under interim coach Clay Helton and stayed in the race for the Pac-12 South title, but only after rallying from an early 14-point deficit.

    “I love how this team is,” Helton said. “They just rise up. They stay extremely poised.”

    … Nate Phillips, David Richards and Cayleb Jones caught touchdown passes from Anu Solomon for the Wildcats (5-5, 2-5), who have lost three straight and five of seven. The defending Pac-12 South champions were officially eliminated from contention for a repeat.
