Game preview Colorado State vs. Colorado

On Saturday afternoon, the Colorado State Rams (0-1, 0-1, ATS and O/U: 1) face the Colorado Buffaloes (2-0, 2-0 ATS and 1-1 O/U) in a marquee rivalry showdown. Colorado State was beaten badly against Washington State in their opener, while Colorado won impressively against Nebraska at home to remain undefeated; these rivals last met back in 2019, and Colorado won 52-31.

Can Coach Prime make it three straight

The #18 Colorado Buffaloes have been one of FBS’s most surprising and thrilling teams early this season, led byΒ  Coach Prime Deion Sanders. Last season, they had aroad win against TCU of BIG 12 as an opener, then three-point favorites against Nebraska of the Big 10. The win over Nebraska found them in the top 20.

Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, will serve as quarterback this season. Sanders turned in stellar numbers at Jackson State over two seasons before debuting with the Buffs and recording 903 passing yards and an excellent 6:0 touchdown-interception ratio in his initial games in FBS play.

Sy’Veon Wilkson transferred from Jackson State and has only seen 46 rushing yards so far; Anthony Handerson has 47. The Buffaloes also boast almost an entirely new receiving core; Xavier Weaver transferred from USF where he amassed 718 receiving yards last season, and has already recorded 288 receiving yards in two games!

Do the Rams have any chance?

The Colorado State Rams have only played one game this year, yet have made a poor first impression, falling 50-24 against Washington State despite being marked as eight-point underdogs. Last season, they only managed three wins across conference play – something Colorado State still needs to address while rebuilding itself.

Clay Millen has had an encouraging sophomore campaign, recording 1910 passing yards with an encouraging 10:6 touchdown-to-interception ratio and connecting on over 70% of his passes. Unfortunately, he struggled in his debut game going 15 for 24 for 110 yards. Brayden Fowler-Nicolsi also received playing time last week; he posted 210 yards with two touchdowns and one interception before being named the starter for this matchup.

Last season’s rushing leader, Avery Morrow, returns. Averaging an average of 4.8 yards per carry last season, Morrow amassed 834 yards at Washington State but only managed 29 total carries in their opener against them. CSU brought back many top receivers, including Tory Horton, who amassed 1131 receiving yards last season – including an impressive 81-yard performance against Washington State! Additionally, CSU recorded 320 passing yards.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Buffaloes -33.5

Colorado is a lot better than the Rams and they are at home. Colorado 56 Colorado State 13.
