    If this is our last year in the Big 12, here is a preview of our farewell tour and a brief discription of the series with those teams I put together.

    10/9 @ Missouri: The Tigers lead the series 40-31-3. Colorado has played Missouri more times than any other Big 12 member. Missouri dominated the series through the 40’s and 50’s, before the series turned more competitive in the 60’s and 70’s with winners going back and forth. Colorado then went on to win 17 out of 20 years from 1985 to 2005. Lately the Tigers have used the buffs as a whipping boy with blowout wins over the buffs the last 4 years. In 2008, the Tigers delivered the buffs first shutout loss since 1988. The game probably best known in this series is the infamous 5th down game in 1990 where the officials lost track of the down count and the buffs used a 5th down to score in the final seconds and win. Final game prediction: Expect the Tigers to do what they’ve been doing the last few years, probably a good solid beating. I don’t see the buffs winning this game, to even be in the game would be a miracle. Tigers 34 Buffs 14



    10/16 Baylor: The Buffs lead the series 9-6. Not many games played between the two schools, and with Baylor being a doormat since they’ve been in the Big 12, this hasn’t been much of a fan favorite. That might change this October after Baylor officials and Texas politicians began lobbying for Baylor to be invited to the Pac 10 conference instead of the buffs. In 1991, Baylor snapped Colorado’s 15 game home winning streak. Final game prediction: This is going to be a lot tougher game than most buff fans would like to believe. Baylor has a dangerous QB in Robert Griffen. The last time the bears were in Folsom, they stunned the buffs. Baylor is capable of doing that again. If the buffs don’t bring their lunch pails to this one, it could be another bears victory. Buffs 24 Bears 21



    10/23 Texas Tech: The buffs lead the series 5-4. The buffs have had some success against the Red Raiders. In 2006 Dan Hawkins’ first CU victory came against the Raiders after a 0-6 start in his first season. This is a series that has been dominated by the home team. Colorado’s win in 2007 was the first road win by either team in this series. Can Texas Tech get their lone road win and even out this short series at 5 games a piece? Final game prediction: The Raiders have new coach Tommy Tuberville in charge and he is a better coach than Hawk. There are a lot of question marks for Tech in this game and season. I think Tech is very capable of winning, but I would not be surprised to see the buffs take yet another game from the Raiders. Buffs 31 Raiders 28


    10/30 @ Oklahoma: The Sooners lead the series 39-17-2. The Sooners have dominated this series, however CU has had some upset victories over some good Sooner teams and a good run themselves in this series. The buffs did go undefeated against OU from 1989-1999 winning 8 times and tying once. Since then the Sooners have given the buffs a couple good beatdowns in the Big 12 CCG. CU did upset 3rd ranked OU in 2007 in Boulder. The buffs last major victory. Final game prediction: After a “down” season last year, OU appears stocked and loaded for another conference and national title run. They have a dangerous QB in Landry Jones (who almost came to CU). The Sooners will give the buffs a good payback from 2007. Sooners 45 Buffs 3


    11/6 @ Kansas: CU leads the series 42-24-3. A series that has mostly been dominated by Colorado. Recently KU went on a good run and beat the buffs 3 straight years. KU has never beaten CU more than 3 straight times. The Hawks came close to that feat in 2009 after a dropped game winning pass in the end zone ended the Hawks 3 year run over the buffs. Final game prediction: KU is in a rebuilding mode. They have a first year HC in Turner Gill, they lost star QB Todd Reesing, star WR’s Kerry Meir and Dezmon Briscoe. Another key loss is RB Jake Sharp, who tore up the buffs in 2008. The Hawks are gonna take a big hit, especially on offense, this is the buffs best chance to get a road win in 2010. Buffs 27 Hawks 24

    11/13 Iowa St: CU leads 48-15-1. The buffs have dominated the cyclones the most out of any Big 12 program. The buffs have gone on winning streaks of 8, 12 and 16 games in this series. The last 6 years however has been a different story. The home team has won this game the last 6 years. Final game prediction: Well seeing how the home team has won the last 6, you would have to like the buffs chances. However, ISU proved last year with a win over Nebraska in Lincoln, that they can be a dangerous team on the road. And the last time the cyclones were in Boulder , the buffs need a goal line stand to seal the game. I could see this going either way, but being it in Boulder, I will have to say the buffs squeak out another close win. Buffs 17 Clones 14

    11/20 Kansas st: CU leads 44-20-1. Up until the 90’s, the wildcats were a conference doormat that the buffs feasted on regularly. Out of all the big 12 teams, the buffs have shutout KSU the most with 10. KSU became competitive in the 90’s and rolled off 4 straight against the buffs from ’97-00, KSU’s longest winning streak against the buffs. In 2002, the buffs beat KSU in a wild shootout for the Big 12 north title. Final game prediction: Kansas state is tricky to predict sometimes. Everybody picked them to not do too much last year, but they went 6-6. This is going to be a real competitive game. I give the buffs a slight edge because it’s in Boulder. Buffs 28 Wildcats 21

    11/26 @ Nebraska: NU leads 48-18-2. Nebraska has dominated CU in large part to 18 and 9 game winning streaks in this series. CU’s 20-10 win in 1986 snapped a 18 game losing streak to the Huskers and was the turning point for the buffs. In 2001, the buffs destroyed the 2nd ranked huskers 62-36. To this day Nebraska has never been the same that they were before that day. Final game prediction: NU is loaded on defense and last year was the buffs best chance to get one last win over the hated huskers. This series has been competitive the last 15 years, and there has been lots of surprises and close games, but I don’t see the buffs winning in Lincoln this year. Huskers 27 Buffs 13

    I agree, but it will be strange not playing them.

    I won't find it strange at all, frankly. The sooner we get out of this craptacular conference, the better. I'm perfectly at ease with the idea that I've seen my last CU/NU game in person.

    Attention Buff Fans: The red is out of Folsom. It took a number of years, but CU has gotten the red out.

    Odd that we might never play NU in Folsom again. Kinda sad.

    Does anyone know where I can find the Buffs record against Texas from 1990 until now?

    Thank you. You don't happen to know what the record is, perchance, since 1990?

    If you go back to the 1989 season, we're split 7-7 with Texas, BSDs that they are.

    It won't be quite the same, but UU will be wearing red when they come to Folsom.

    That's right. UU will bring, oh say, 5000 - 6000 fans and the Huskers show up with 35,000 fans. Yep, it won't be the same that's for sure.

    Yep, you are spot on. Can you hear the crickets? I can, Hawkins is still in the house. Better call the fumigator while the place is empty.

    Keep on clinging on, Fatal Attraction. Your trademark Husker classiness is in full bloom this morning. When do you get to the part when you boil the bunny?

    35,000? You inflate your #'s sir. Unless you are counting the trailerpark residents of Boulder.

    I think he meant the number of Cornchickens who spend the weekend after the game on the Husker Riviera (Estes Park).

    I guess you were not at the last CU NU game in Boulder last year.............Or does that game not count since Hawkins is the interim coach of the Buffs?

    I was. you guys had a pretty good contingent. It certainly wasn't 2/3 of the stadium :lol:. I would say you had a solid 10-12 thousand tho. What is that, like 10% of the population of nebraska? So don't feel bad, that is pretty good!
