Coach Prime and his Buffaloes are on a roll, but so are Bo Nix and the Oregon Ducks, and something has to give. The nation is enthralled watching Coach prime resurrect the Colorado football program while Orego keeps on trucking along. The big question in this game will be the effect of losing Travis Hunter: can the Buffs survive without their best player?
Yes, Colorado still needs work on their defense.
Deion Sanders successfully upgraded talent across his 2023 team via the transfer portal, yet some issues on the defense are there.
Shedeur has been pummeled by his offensive line – only five other teams have allowed more sacks per game – while his running game has only appeared briefly.
TCU and Nebraska ran wild against the Colorado D line, while Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi of Colorado State amassed almost 400 yards passing in one game alone.
Oregon has built its stats and reputation with dominating performances against Portland State and Hawaii, but their passing game stood tall against Texas Tech on the road.
Breathtaking offensive performances were delivered in last week’s win over Colorado State. Shedeur Sanders proved himself as an authentic big-time college quarterback; unfortunately, his Heisman moment occurred late at night during against the Rams as he brought the Buffaloes back from the brink of extinction.
Yes, this team has the talent to compete head-to-head with the Ducks. But one key piece was missing from last week’s Boulder game: When this team feels disrespected, their confidence rises quickly.
Colorado State stepped up their attitude and fire in its opener against TCU – adopting a “no one believes in us” mindset seemed to help turn things around against an underdog Nebraska team without nearly as much talent – before falling flat against Colorado State.
Oregon should take this matchup seriously – if they don’t, the Ducks will have their hands full. They bring plenty of talent but, more importantly, a will to win, which makes all the difference in this matchup.
Even without Travis Hunter, Colorado still possesses enough skill parts to score consistently and at an accelerated rate. They will take what the Ducks excel at doing with pace and take it a step further.
Oregon’s defense will be the difference in this game. Colorado will be helpless against the Oregon offense, and Oregon wins this game going away. Twenty-one points is a lot, though, and I think the Buffs are headed for a back door cover. Oregon 51 Colorado 34.
