    Game #3 is a FCS team from the Big Sky Conference and it is not Northern Colorado. It is a home game, too.

    Just looking through the Big Sky 2012 football schedule.

    The Buffs apparently face one of these Big Sky teams, who have an open schedule on Sep 8th:

    California State Sacramento Hornets (Poster thinks CU is done deal, confusion with dates) http://www.bigskyfans.com/hornets/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1504)
    Montana State Bobcats
    Northern Arizona Lumberjacks
    Southern Utah University Thunderbirds (new big sky member in 2012)
    Cal Davis Aggies


    Remote chance
    Portland State Vikings (have UDub in Seattle on 9/15) less likely to face two Pac 12 teams.
    Cal Poly State Mustangs (new big sky member in 2012. Montana rumor on 9/8)
    Montana Grizzlies (cal poly on 9/8)



    These teams (already booked on Sep 8th) are probably ruled out.

    Northern Colorado
    Eastern Washington
    Idaho
    Weber State
    North Dakota (new big sky member in 2012)

    Cal Sac would make sense. We recruit Sacramento. Doesn't hurt at all to give the local college a payday and build those relationships.

    I don't see how the recruiting angle makes any difference if it's a one and done.
    A home and home would be a different story. In that case, I'd rather play Cal Davis for a wine country roadie.

    A big part of recruiting is the networking among coaches. I guaranteed that Cal Sac runs coaching clinics and camps. That they draw most of their players from the local area. It helps a program like CU when recruiting in that area if our coaches build a relationship with those coaches so that those guys are saying good things about us. Whether we played here or there is irrelevant to this. I'm talking about building pipelines while recognizing this is a long-term process.

    screw davis, Hawk's from there. Besides its all of about a half hour closer to wine country (proper) than Cal Sac, but Cal Sac is closer to Zinfandel country.

    Dang. I thought Cal Davis was much closer to Napa. Turns out Cal Davis and Cal State are equal distance to the sacramento airport. Classic "six of one - half dozen of the other" situation.
