    Good to be on ESPN, I guess. Good exposure.

    Well that sucks, was hoping for an earlier start time. The family and I, along with a coug grad are going to the game. With how many times they throw it, the game might not end until two in the morning.

    Ouch. Pullman lodging options are limited and driving back to the hotel in Spokane after the game is going to suck.

    That'll get you home between 2AM and 3AM. Be safe and avoid making any road kill.

    I'm guessing most people on the east coast and even central time zone will not be paying attention or will be in bed.

    I am surprised by the line. Vegas doesn't see the improvement. 15 pt dogs to WSU. Wow!

    Replacing a 3 year starter at QB with a back up that has virtually 0 live game experience.

    and one that (a) threw for a very low ypa; and (b) a team that can't run the ball at all now that the QB trap play is gone with Sefo Out.

    Check out WSU's season so far. Then get back to us with that "surprise" thing you got going there.

    This is a big problem for the Buffs. WSU is playing relevant games in late season for the first time in a while. They're not likely to overlook CU but rather rev it up at the unusual prospects of an 8th win, ranking, and bowl game. And it's their last Senior home game. Not sure how the Buffs will counter the momentum, but absolutely a fast start and maintaining dominance will be essential. It will be challenging.

    It is definitely a tougher game, but they have horrible run Defense, and our run game isn't half bad...it's the other half that concerns me. ;)

    Cu doesn't produce much of a pass rush and with them throwing 60 times, it's really going to be ugly in the second half.

    We will see. CU generated a pretty good pass rush against Kessler last week.

    Good. I was afraid that there would be no one there to motivate them.

    I am surprised the game is on the board with CUs QB out. From a handicapper perspective - CU is putting in a QB for his first college start (never good), CU is a bad team on the road, WSU just beat UCLA on the road, spread seems about right to get equal money on both sides of the bet. If you think 15 is too big, plenty of sports books will take your money.

    Yeah. I don't know what's going to happen in this game, but 15 seems a bit generous to CU. I've been impressed with what I've seen of WSU this season.
