USC Vs. Colorado: Cold Weather Expected For Trojans Friday Night

The USC Trojans are huge favorites on Friday night at Folsom Field in Boulder, facing the Colorado Buffaloes who are still looking for their first Pac-12 Conference win. But that doesn't mean the Trojans won't face obstacles. Such as the weather for instance.

USC landed in Boulder on Thursday, and the athletic department noted this:

The Trojans land in Boulder to the announcement that is 1 degree celsius. That's 33 degrees fahrenheit.

Most southern Californians aren't used to cold weather, although it would be pretty cool to watch a game in the snow. The last time USC played in the snow was on November 20, 1957 at Notre Dame. The temperature 54 years ago in South Bend was 20 degrees, a 40-12 USC loss.

It doesn't look like it will get that cold Friday night in Boulder, with a low of 39 degrees per The Weather Channel. Plus, there is only a 10% chance of precipitation. The Trojans have waited 54 years to play a game in snow, so what's another year or so?
