Another week, another lopsided loss. I am joined for this podcast by Brad Geiger and Neil Langland, and we will give you a recap of the USC game, a 55-17 final, including a discussion of how the Buffs managed to have the lead after the first quarter, and the sportsmanship - and gamesmanship - involved in USC’s final score with 36 seconds remaining in the game.
But, before we dive into the post-mortem of the USC game, we will discuss ESPN Game Day.

It will be cold, but the University of Colorado will be represented in the early morning crowd.
We will also, of course, bring you our “T.I.P.S.” for the upcoming matchup against No. 15 Washington, and CU’s chances as a 31.0-point underdog.

Is there one chance in a thousand that the CU game will be a trap game for the Huskies, coming off of a rivalry win over Oregon, and a week before the Apple Cup rivalry game against Washington State?
