    If, before the season, you had suggested to me that the Buffs would still be undefeated heading into Week 5, I would've told you that it would require an Act of God. No offense to the team and their effort, but the non-conference schedule seemed guaranteed to produce at least one loss.

    A 1000-year rainfall event later, and here we sit, proudly cheering on one of only 29 squads still unblemished by defeat.

    Scheduling asterisk aside, regardless of what happens this Saturday, the team can be proud of how they've performed to date.* They've looked invested, competent, and - above all - dangerous.* As much as I could've hoped for headed into the season.

    But now comes the task of exceeding expectations.* From here on out, any winning the team does will begin to push the needle past those preseason hopes. *Hell, a bowl game*is still a theoretical possibility. *However, still without a 12th game against a beatable opponent, CU's best path to bowl eligibility would include a stunning road upset in-conference.* Oregon St provides the first such opportunity.

    --

    It has been 21 days since CU last took the field in anger. *My anticipation level is through the roof, and I have to agree with Coach MacIntyre - it feels like an entirely new season is starting this weekend. *Opening day is back!

    Kickoff from Reser Stadium in Corvallis, OR is set for 1pm MT on Saturday.* Coverage can be seen on Pac-12 Networks, or heard on 850 KOA.
