BOULDER – Let’s acknowledge the elephant in the room: Colorado has never beaten the University of Southern California in football.

Over the course of the last 93 years, the Buffaloes have taken on the Trojans 14 times and have never won. USC has outscored CU 484-220.

This Saturday, when the Buffs travel to Los Angeles for a midday matchup, would be a good time to flip the script. Colorado and USC sit atop the Pac-12 South standings. Every other team in the division has a losing record. The winner on Saturday will be the only remaining unbeaten team in the division and would hold the tiebreaker with two games to play.

In short, the winner on Saturday will be squarely in the driver’s seat to take the South Division’s spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Dec. 19.
