    The Vegas line opened at Fresno -10 with an over of 70. What are you guys thoughts?

    I have FSU in the win, 45 - 34

    Early money on the Buffs, line down to FS -9.5.

    We may actually have a better defense than Fresno, but their offense is a machine, while ours can appear a one-trick pony too often. Carr is one of the best QBs we'll face all year, and he has to be confident coming in. I'd like to think that if we can avoid a first quarter blitz and keep it close going into the 4th, that we'd have the advantage. But I think that Fresno is going to get the ball first and score, then do it again, and race out to a comfy lead.

    IT will be close if we can cut down on turnovers.
    I'm expecting a shootout with the Buffs edging out the victory: 45-38 or something like that.

    Tough fought game with LOTS of big gains on both sides.

    +1. I think with a full seven days, coach Mac is going to plan the sh|t out of this game. Plus, I think in the CAU game, our players were cocky. For FSU, I'm thinking they will humble but confident and revenge minded whereas I'm banking on FSU being overconfident. Their D kinda blows

    C'mon guys ? 45 CU 31 fsu

    I actually think the BUFFS pull another one out... The run game will be better this game which will get the receivers going. TJones and Abron have good games. PRich will have a monster game, again.
    fsu's defense is pretty bad (allowing 479 yards a game). Altitude, fsu comes in over confident.

    Fresno: 42
    CU: 24

    Our O-line is offensive (maybe too harsh because they are trying, but needs a lot of improvement). I like our D, but this is the first real good offense we will face.

    I will be pleased if our guys come out fired up and play the entire 60 minutes. I want to see focus and effort the ENTIRE game.

    42-41 Buffs.

    CU gets the ball back with 3 min left and drives down the field and scores with 15 sec remaining.

    Revenge Tour....think the players are going to be extremely pumped up for this one...Secondary makes a few big plays again, and we don't turn the ball over and I like our chances

    Buffs - 48
    Fresno - 45

    If the over/under us really just 70, that party's easy. Fresno's offense will put some numbers up, but I think our D continues to improve - which, sadly, means fsu doesn't get more than 45. I think our second and third receivers step up to contribute, the run game finds consistency, and Woods gets it together. Somehow, special teams holds it together, too.

    If the voodoo priest I hired for this game is worth his salt, we score 48. Buffs win!

    Heart says CU wins.

    Head says 45-31 Fresneck.

    With the chance of a track meet though, if we can stay within 7 going into the 4th, I like our chances.

    If we get out to a good start we can win this game. The Fresno defense is not that good. If our offense can find another weapon other than Richardson we can win this game.

    I still have never watched last year's debacle, as I was in Kauai and turned it on the radio and we were down 21 early. Hit the Mai Tai's hard that day.

    It seems to me that our lack of pass rush on defense won't hurt us as much as Carr and team just chuck it around in 1-2 seconds anyway. It's all about being disciplined and tackling well in space. Discipline is so key. And Carr is known to get a little loose with it at times.

    That's a tough assignment and one we were awful at last year, but I think we are SOOOO much more focused, disciplined, and assignment-correct. If we can avoid the long TDs, Fresno State will absolutely gain tons of yards, but maybe, just maybe, they have more difficulty in the Red Zone. Our front 7 is playing the run tough and the field gets smaller in the Red Zone.

    Fresno State's own D could gas by the 4th Quarter as well.

    I'm going to call an upset special here:

    CU 38
    FSU 30

    Need our D line to step up and pressure the QB without blitzing LB's. Has not really happened yet. Need our O line to pass block and they were exposed last week. Our extra special teams scare me in this.

    I think CU has played against stiffer (not necessarily better) competition through 2 games and we have better stats - QB efficiency, pass offense, interceptions, red zone offense, run defense, red zone defense, passes defended (individual)...and on and on. And of course Richardson. Lets not sell our guys short

    Their offense is designed to negate the pass rush. It's all quick passes in space. Lot's of picks, lots of bubble screens, etc.

    I would expect "safety rushes" by the DL, so don't expect a lot of heat on the QB.

    After reviewing the stats from last week. I revise my prediction of 42-41.

    CU 42 FS 31

    Wood, P-Rich, Spruce, Goodson, Powell score

    Defense has 3 TO's and a TD

    I'm gonna wait to hear what Mac/DeRuyter say before making a decision. We have the revenge factor but DeRuyter will want to beat us for not hiring him. I suspect MacIntyre has had this game circled all offseason

    I'm liking Coach Mac at this point.
    I do believe he's a WAY better coach than what we've had in years...no disrespect to the other guys, but
    he does bring intensity and great planning.

    I think that he will have a good game plan, and if our turnovers are limited, we'll be good.

    You can disrespect the other guys. Hawkins and Embree were terrible coaches.

    One thing I know for sure, if we get out to a 14 point lead, then *****foot around and fall behind, we won't be coming back and still winning by 10+. If we give away long returns and turn the ball over, it's not going to be pretty.

    Exactly, if we jump out to an early lead, we can not let up and expect to come back. Fresno will slaughter us at that point.
