Noticeable Advantages for CU CU DL vs. CSU OL Two potential all big 12 DTs in Hypolite and Nichlas, and plenty of experience at DE, I think the DL will give the CSU OL fits on Sat. CSU lines was a seive last year against the pash rush and they were awful running the ball as well. (Partly due to losing Bell, but also because they just were not good running the ball) CU TE's vs CSU LBS/S The CU TE are too big for the CSU Safeties, especially is Kubiak is still gimpy. 3 of the 4 CU TEs are also bigger than the CSU LBs, with Joe Sanders (6'3" 235) being basically the same size as the largest CSU LB. The CSU LBs are also pretty banged up coming into this game. Cody Hawkins has shown an affinity for his TEs in both the spring game and fall scrimmages. Noticeable CSU Advantages Special teams. Mostly this is because CUs were so awful last year, even with Mason Crosby. CSU Jason Smith has been anything but reliable in kicking FGs, but he's got more experience than CUs Kevin Eberhart. CSU's Johnny Walker and Damon Morton are real threats in the return game, where CU is still hoping that they've found someone reliable to return kicks in Hugh Charles, Terrance Wheatley or Stephone Robinson. The rest of the match ups are pretty much a toss up, with none of the units for either team appearing to have much of an advantage.
