    O/U for interceptions in 2013 is 12.

    Place your bet...

    Only 44 teams had more than 12 interceptions last year. We had 3. UNDER. Easiest one yet.

    Under, go with 11. Sure would help the whole team if the D could get alot of pics tho.

    I'd prefer if they were more focused on getting turnovers than taking photos.

    FWIW, 12 interceptions would have tied for 10th in the PAC-12 last season.

    It will be close. CU's ineptitude at forcing TO's was our biggest issue last year. It's not a coincidence that the game we won we had 2 INT's and a fumble recovery

    Yes, but most of the other teams in the PAC-12 had the benefit of playing us.

    I'm not sure how you see this team getting from 3 to 12 but maybe it was all schemes last year. Under is a pretty safe bet.

    Getting the completion percentages against our defense down a bit would be nice.

    I would go slightly under, but I do think scheme played a large role.

    For as much as Brown's defenses were termed "aggressive," I rarely saw CBs turning around to actually play the ball and not the man. Greg Henderson alone in 2011 (as a true freshman no less) was not looking on several pass completions that he was in position to stop. Interceptions tend to come in bunches (think 2007 against TT), so 2-3 games is all it takes to get near double digits.

    Under. Lots of good passing teams and our secondary is, how do you say... Suspect?

    Under. And the offense better capitalize on any they actually manage to get.

    Under. Teams will run on us too easily to throw much.

    O/U remains at 12. Place your bet.

    (Buffs have 3 interceptions through two games)
