    … CU in a few minutes …

    Pat Rooney: Though an enviable problem, QB dilemma must be resolved for CU Buffs

    From the Daily Camera … It is a welcome problem to have, and one that almost is an embarrassment of riches for a Colorado Buffaloes football team on the cusp of breaking a streak of 10 consecutive losing seasons.

    Yet it is a question that must be considered by the CU coaching staff, maybe as soon as this week if senior Sefo Liufau is declared fully recovered from the ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago at Michigan.

    Return the starting quarterback job to Liufau? Or hand the keys to the offense to the red-hot hands of Steven Montez?

    It is a decision that may not necessarily have a wrong answer, given the elite level both signal-callers are playing at. Yet with the schedule’s degree of difficulty about to increase, it nonetheless is a decision that will impact CU’s quest to land a spot in the Pac-12 Conference title game — a destination that seemed like a pipe dream just a few short weeks ago yet feels more reasonable every time the upstart Buffs hit the field.

    Trojans “charmed the doubters” in 41-20 rout of Arizona State

    From the Los Angeles Times … The breath was deep, and long, and cleansing.

    Whew. USC is not the worst team in college football history.

    Ahh. USC may have discovered a quarterback, rediscovered a running game, and remembered how to tackle.

    Sigh. USC has a chance to be fun again.

    On a night that appropriately began in a swelter and ended in a breeze, the Trojans charmed the doubters in a half-filled Coliseum on Saturday night with 41-20 win over Arizona State.

    They needed this. For the love of JuJu, they really needed this.

    After beginning the season with a 1-3 record, with each loss progressively worse, with each drama progressively more ominous, the Trojans stepped onto the field against the unbeaten Sun Devils as if walking into quicksand.

    Then suddenly, they found their footing. They found their discipline. They found a talent that had never been questioned by showcasing schemes that were no longer baffling.

    They found a leader and, believe it, Sam Darnold is the real deal. They found receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who should never be allowed to get lost again. They found a pressure defense that knocked out Arizona State’s quarterback Manny Wilkins and essentially ended the game at halftime.

    “That September I don’t want to remember, to be honest with you,” said Coach Clay Helton afterward. “This was an important game for us. Yes, there is a lot of relief.”
