Wide receiver Brenden Rice has been a standout player, contributing with 2 TDs last week, bringing his season total to 5. Rice has recorded a touchdown in five consecutive games, showcasing his scoring ability.
Tahj Washington, another explosive wide receiver for USC, added to the scoring frenzy with a 45-yard TD reception, solidifying his position as a top performer in yards per reception, ranking third in the nation and first in the Pac-12.
In the rushing department, RB MarShawn Lloyd dominated the game, amassing 154 yards on the ground in just 14 carries, averaging an impressive 11.0 yards per carry.
Defensively, LB Eric Gentry led the Trojans with 9 tackles, while a relentless pass rush, led by Romello Height, Tackett Curtis, Solomon Byrd, Jamil Muhammad, and Bear Alexander, resulted in multiple sacks.
USC's defensive excellence has earned them the top spot in the nation for tackles for loss (41.0) and a notable third place in sacks (16.0). To cap it off, S Calen Bullock secured an interception against ASU QB Drew Pyne, adding to his career total.
Under the leadership of new head coach Deion Sanders, the Colorado Buffaloes have shown promise with a 3-1 overall record, although they are 0-1 in Pac-12 Conference games. However, they faced a tough loss to Oregon, falling 42-6 in Eugene, Oregon, on September 23.
QB Shedeur Sanders has been impressive, completing 130 of 169 passes with 11 TDs and only 1 interception. He's been the driving force behind the Buffaloes' offensive efforts.
In the rushing department, RB Dylan Edwards leads the way with 157 yards and 1 TD on 28 carries.
The Buffaloes have showcased a balanced passing attack with five different players recording TD receptions this season. WR Xavier Weaver, WR Jimmy Horn Jr., RB Dylan Edwards, WR Tar'Varish Dawson, and TE Michael Harrison have all contributed to the team's success through the air.
