Is CU on the level of CSU and UMASS or can the Buffs compete in the PAC12 this year? After CSU laid an egg at BSU and the Buffs gave up a ton of points to a UMASS team that is suppose to be bad, the big question is what level are the Buffs at relative to other P5 teams. A solid performance will give some hope. Can CU's defense slow down the ASU attack? UMASS averaged less the 12 points per game last year but managed to put a few up on CU. ASU has a high powered attack - this may not be a good match up. CU was able to stop UMASS when the defense started blitzing. ASU runs the same blocking schemes that CSU does but uses the zone read more to find the holes. This is time for the defense to learn from the first two games and to get some stops. Can CU move the ball on the ground and in the air? The offense has been spotty at best this season. ASU's defense is suppose to be its Achilles heel, but they are probably better than CSU on defense. ASU looks to be more vulnerable to the run than the pass so can the Buffs get some yardage on the ground? Can CU finally stop the KO return? ASU has not returned a KO this year - other teams do not kickoff to them much and they have all been touchbacks. Like to see CU not give up KOs to have short field situations for ASU - they don't need the help. Can CU get some turnovers? CU only has one turnover this year, need some to stay in this game. Please add your own questions. We will know a lot more about this team after this game.
