USC Vs. Colorado: Lane Kiffin Looks Ahead After Dramatic Loss To Stanford

The USC Trojans came extremely close to upsetting the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal last weekend, pushing Andrew Luck and his Cardinal teammates to three overtimes before falling 56-48 by virtue of a game-ending fumble. Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin is already looking forward to his team's next game against the Colorado Buffaloes, courtesy of Monday's press conference:

 

Kiffin stated, "we've moved on from [the Stanford loss]. We blew a 24-hour horn yesterday (Sunday), gotta get everyone moving forward." The head coach also acknowledged the dedication of the USC fans throughout the night who remained standing after the game and gave the team a standing ovation after the heartbreaking loss.

The Trojans have only two full practices before they face Colorado on Friday. The Buffaloes (1-8, 0-5 in the Pac-12) are the worst team in the Pac-12 this year, but Kiffin is not underestimating them. Asked about his upcoming opponent, Kiffin stated that the Buffaloes have been more injury-ravaged than arguably any other team in the country and are finally starting to get healthy. He won't allow his team to take a mental or emotional break as they face a struggling Colorado team.

The Trojans (6-2, 3-2 in Pac-12) play Colorado at 6:00 p.m. PT on Friday night. The game will be broadcast by ESPN and ESPN 3D.
