Michael Pittman Jr. caught two of J.T. Daniels’ three touchdown passes, and Southern California’s defense dominated in a 31-20 victory over previously unbeaten No. 19 Colorado on Saturday night.
Ajene Harris returned an interception for a touchdown in the third quarter for the Trojans (4-2, 3-1 Pac-12), who have rebounded from back-to-back losses with three straight wins. The defending conference champions asserted their supremacy over the upstart Buffaloes (5-1, 2-1) in the Pac-12 South race while remaining unbeaten at the Coliseum in all 19 games under coach Clay Helton.
Tyler Vaughns also caught a TD pass from Daniels, who passed for 272 yards with two first-quarter interceptions and a handful of missed throws. USC’s offense only scored touchdowns in the second quarter, struggled to run the ball and relied heavily on big plays. Trojans’ defense limited Colorado’s high-powered offense to 265 yards — and a mere 164 in the first three quarters while USC took control with a 28-7 lead.
Laviska Shenault made a 49-yard TD run before injuring his lower leg in the second half for the Buffaloes, who dropped to 0-13 in school history against USC. Steven Montez went 25 of 46 for 168 yards. Kyle Evans rushed for a 2-yard score with 6:42 to play, and Montez made a 19-yard TD run with 3:32 left.
USC hasn’t lost at the Coliseum since Helton got the job midway through the 2015 season, and the Trojans dominated this late-night showcase with defense — and even without injured linebacker Cameron Smith, their leading tackler this season and in each of the past two years.
