Ugh. Well, in hindsight I am glad I did not go to Columbus last weekend. Colorado lost 37-17 to Ohio State where field position dictated the entire game. As the Buffs have done in every game this season thus far they fell behind early. Against CSU you can get away with it. Against Ohio State you can not. Even with all the chips in our favor, Tressel gone, Pryor left, suspensions, scandal, OSU coming off a loss, OSU starting a freshman QB, etc. CU could not best a weakened Buckeye team. No thanks to themselves. Sloppy play simply doomed the Buffs.
The Colorado Buffaloes host the Washington State Cougars (2-1, 0-0 Pac-12) in a 12:30 PM kickoff at Folsom Field. The game will be televised nationally by Fox College Sports.
The Buffs are 78-37-2 in conference openers and 5-2 in their first game in a brand new league. CU was 8-7 in Big 12 openers and won its last seven as a member of the Big 8.
WSU is the first of three opponents (all this month) who will play CU with the schedule break of having the previous week off.
Washington (Oct. 15) and State (Oct. 29) are idle the previous Saturdays as well and also will have a full two weeks to prep for the Buffaloes. Arizona
This is the second, and last, predicted win for Colorado for 2011. If that's the case let's go out and get it.
