After consecutive losses to Stanford and Texas, it seemed as if the USC Trojans (3-2) were going off the rails. Consecutive Pac-12 wins helped alleviate some pressure, but now the visiting No. 19 ranked Colorado Buffaloes (5-0) are in for their biggest test of the season on Saturday night.
The game is scheduled to start at 10:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox Sports 1 is included in FuboTV’s main package, which includes 85 total channels and is largely tailored towards sports fans. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a handy “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which will allow you to watch the game on-demand up to three days after it airs even if you forgot to record it.
In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including Fox Sports 1. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

Fox Sports Go
Additionally, you can watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Fox Sports Go website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Fox Sports Go app. You’ll need to log in to a cable provider to watch this way, but if you don’t have that, you can still sign up for one of the above options and then use your FuboTV, Hulu or Sling TV credentials to sign in and watch on the Fox digital platforms.
The Buffaloes are still unbeaten, the only remaining team in the Pac-12 without a loss. Colorado has mostly done that on the strength of a modest schedule, defeating teams such as in-state rival Colorado State and Nebraska out of conference.
In order for the Trojans to maintain their supremacy at the Los Angeles Coliseum, they will have to clean up their act. Head coach Clay Helton’s team committed 18 penalties (169 yards) and three turnovers in last week’s win against Arizona; penalties that have recently come under fire due to a report that says leadership has “influenced decision-making” during the replay process of football games, notably in the USC-Washington State game from Sept. 21.
“We’ve got to clean up penalties and those turnovers immediately,” Helton said. “The defense played excellent, we were able to run the ball like we planned, our special teams are getting better with each week. (But) we’ve got to cut the mistakes out and have a clean game.”
Freshman quarterback JT Daniels faces junior Steven Montez. Montez has completed 75.2% of his passes for 1,420 yards, with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. After struggling to start, Daniels has leveled off with a 59.9% completion rate, 1,257 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.
USC has never lost to Colorado. The Trojans are unbeaten in 18 lifetime matchups against the Buffaloes. The winner of this game has the inside track to represent the South Division in the Pac-12 Championship Game later in the year.
