Boulder, CU – Colorado Buffaloes can’t hold slow down the USC Trojans dropping a 37-14 game at home against PAC-12 foe. Colorado didn’t have an answer for USC Jake London who caught 9 balls for 130 yards with a touchdown.
Colorado defense allowed 10 points in each of the first three quarters trailing 20-7 at the half. Their offense had amassed 242 yards averaging only 4.3 yards.
USC only allowed Colorado one first down on 3rd down, where there has to be improvement to compete. The offense did have 11 first down in the game.
A highlight was Colorado quarterback Brendon Lewis threw for 162 yards and a touchdown. Brady Russell was his key receiver catching 3 passes for 87 yards.
“We had a couple of scoring drives tonight which is good, we had some other opportunities to do some positives things but we just didn’t do it.” Said Colorado coach Karl Dorrell.
Running back Jarek Brousard carried the main load with 16 carries, while Deion Smith had 7 carries with nice touchdown run using his speed to the pylon.
Trojans signal caller Kedon Slovis completed 19 of 29 throws for 276 yards and hit Drake London, Michael Trigg and Gary Bryant Jr. with scoring passes.
USC will host Utah next week at the Coliseum and has a bye week before hosting Arizona Wildcats on Oct 16.
