Colorado vs USC : Reign of Troy Radio’s USC podcast co-hosts Michael Castillo and Alicia de Artola turn in another 100ish-minute episode, delving into this week’s big game at the Coliseum between the 3-2 Trojans and the undefeated and 19th-ranked Colorado Buffaloes.
Michael Castillo and Alicia de Artola kick off this week’s episode with details of an impromptu RoTbot meetup in LA this week.
This week’s news segment is a tough one, going over the departure of Bubba Bolden and the heartbreaking death of Kevin Ellison.
RoT Radio then previews the USC-Colorado game, going in depth on both teams and what they bring to the table in Week 7, including CU’s potent duo between Laviska Shenault and Steven Montez. How will the Trojans find a way to stop them?

In the Over/Under portion of the episode, Michael and Alicia make their predictions on key stats in the Colorado game, in addition to offering their score predictions for Saturday night’s contest.Lastly, the podcast comes to a finish with a lengthy mailbag segment looking at realistic conclusions to the Trojans’ 2018 season, plus questions about Clay Helton’s future and so much more.
While Reign of Troy Radio’s CU preview is in the books, it doesn’t mean there’s not more RoT content on the way. Over on Patreon, the show continues with a pair of Practice Carcasts featuring Alicia’s assessment of USC’s game week practices, and Friday morning will see another Pregame Q&A episode go live.
Control of the Pac-12 South race will be on the line when USC vs. Colorado kicks off on Saturday at the Coliseum.
Fortunately for Trojan fans, oddsmakers feel fairly confident in the home team, setting USC as a seven-point favorite over the Buffaloes, per OddsShark.
That’s not to say fans should expect it to be easy. The Trojans are 1-4 against the spread this season, barely covering last week’s four-point margin against Arizona thanks to a missed Wildcat extra point attempt in the final minutes. They are 5-14 against the spread going back to last season.
