    Credit to Maximus on Rivals for finding this one.

    Colorado State is 6-17 SU versus Colorado since 1987, as it looks to avenge a 41-27 setback as three-point favorites in last year’s meeting—outgained by a sizable 509-295 margin in total yards.

    Colorado has won five of the six meetings in this series since it landed in the Mile High City during the 2007 campaign, with the average win coming by a margin of 15 points and the only loss being by five.


    In other words, as bad as CU has been in recent years, this series hasn't really been close. Buffs look to make it a 75% win rate over the past 24 years with a win in the opener and 6/8 (75%) in the most recent years [that 5/6 stat was for games in Denver and didn't include the blunder in Boulder]. Early line has the Buffs favored by 3.5 points.

    I expect it to be a close, low-scoring game this year.

    It's not gonna be close, it's going to be similar to the 2010 game

    I would be mildly shocked if our defense can hold anyone to single digits, but hope you are right. Grayson is pretty decent IMO.

    Grayson had a good running game and a damn good OL to take the pressure off of him in the passing game, he won't have those in the first game and that'll result in a few turnovers on his part.

    Early prediction: 34-13

    I think so, too. Pretty good QB with a lot of game snaps. Buffs need to stop the run game and bring pressure. If we see that, we'll also see the ineffective CSU pass offense we have seen before of a lot of short passes for a high % that don't move the chains.

    As usual, I see the Buffs winning this comfortably as long as we can avoid losing the turnover battle or giving up a lot on trick plays & special teams returns.

    Hope you are right. 34 points seems pretty damn ambitious to me.

    I thought tini was all about computer rankings and Vegas spreads. Now as 3 point favorites we will win by 3 TD's? What gives?

    I think turnovers are gonna play a big part in those 34 points for us.

    And slider, you are adorable. Pretty clear you know nothing about lines seeing as how they are set to get equal play in the market. But please, continue being a douche.

    Are you saying you are a line setting, gambling expert?

    No, just that the lines are set to get fair play. Would also like to point that the game started as a pk and has quickly moved to CU's favor.

    Pretty hard to predict this game, IMO. Both teams have lost a lot of contributors from last year (CU with Prich and CSU with their RB core/Oline). I see CU going to a pass heavy offense this year. If CU can completely stop CSU's run game then we are in business, I think. CSU relies heavy on the safety's and LB's over committing to the run game for play action. I fully expect CSU to bring out all of the bag of tricks. CSU also had a lot of drops last year in this game. We shall see.

    Probably like past years, its who wins the turnover battle.

    1U = 1% of your betting bankroll

    Not going to give dollar amounts

    I just don't see CSU winning this game. I suppose it could happen, but I don't think MM lets it happen. All else being equal (which it's not, the tangibles still heavily favor CU) MM is far and away the better coach between him and McElwain. He's a better game day tactician. He's a better game planner. He's a better motivator.
