And the world turns . . . . .
CU got shellacked against USC last weekend. And now they face
this weekend. Nothing worse than one of the
youngest teams in the country having to face USC and then in back-to-back weeks. The biggest game of the season
for Oregon , at USC, looms, but the chance of an
upset at the hands of Oregon is microscopic. Colorado
In addition CU committed six turnovers, five of which led to 29 USC points. And then Matt Barkley threw 6 TD passes against CU. Again. For the second straight year.
And now on to the
Bataan Death March . . .
The Colorado Buffaloes remain on the Pac-12 road for a second straight week against a second consecutive ranked opponent, traveling to the state of Oregon for the first time in 26 years to take on the No. 2 Oregon Ducks (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12).
Kickoff is at 12 noon at Autzen Stadium. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
CU has lost nine straight against ranked teams (last win: 34-30 over
Kansas in 2009) and 19 straight
road games against ranked opponents (last win: 31-17 at UCLA in 2002). When it
comes to playing teams who are ranked second in the nation is 4-15 all-time . Colorado Colorado is 2-5 all-time in the s tate
wins at Autzen. CU won 13-6 in 1955 and 17-13 in 1967, the first game ever
played in Autzen, which was completed in time for that ’67 season. with Oregon
So, basically, don't expect any of these stats to change in the win column.
I will say a prayer for
