Current Ranking: Not Ranked
Colorado was outplayed by Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal last week getting spanked 48-7 at The Farm. That was hard to watch and hard to take. Good thing I was busy getting my buzz on to anesthetize the pain. The game started brilliantly with CU looking like they were about to strike first and set the tone after a kickoff turnover by Stanford. But alas the worst possible outcome occurred in not only did CU not score but allowed a blocked field goal for a score. Christ. Even at that the Buffs pulled within 13-7. But that would be as close as they ever got.
The Hawkins Hangover continues.
The road woes also continue as the Colorado Buffaloes travel to the Pacific Northwest to face the Washington Huskies (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) at Husky Stadium in Seattle. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 PM PDT. The game will be televised regionally by ROOT Sports (Rocky Mountain and Northwest), which will feed a national broadcast on FCS-Atlantic.
(This is a change from FCS-Pacific, originally slated to air the game).
Colorado and Washington have met 10 times in their histories, but not since 2000 in Boulder when the Huskies escaped with a 17-14 win. Washington was idle last Saturday, and the Huskies are out to win their third straight game after opening with back-to-back league wins over California (31-23) and at Utah (31-14). As if the cards aren’t stacked against the Buffs enough UW is the second of three opponents this month who have open weeks prior to playing CU: Washington State was idle on Sept. 24 and Arizona State is off next Saturday.
Two of the nation’s top senior running backs will be facing each other this Saturday. CU’s Rodney Stewart (3,175) and UW’s Chris Polk (3,172) are only separated by just three yards in their careers. It will be a dual. Go Speedy!
21 - The Buffs have lost 21 straight road games, 21 outside the state of Colorado (last win: 31-26 at Texas Tech in 2007) … CU is coming off a 48-7 loss at No.
