    Definitely safety. But probably corner. And also linebacker/buff back.

    Does Cal have the #1 defense in all of college? They held WSU to 19 points. All I know is - Pac-12 = schizo...and you could pay me enough to make wagers on games this year.

    Oh please sweet baby Jesus be back!

    If Viska plays and is healthy, Buffs win. He’s that good.

    With Viska, Buffs 45, WSU 41
    Without Viska, WSU 45, Buffs 35

    I know I am supposed to be a homer, but the way WSU throws the ball and the way CU fails to cover anyone....well the Buffs are in big trouble.

    48-31 bad guys.

    The incredible WSU passing game was unimpressive at home v Cal. 330 yds but took 51 throws. Unless the Buffs tank, which I think unlikely, I expect MM to get a rare win over a ranked team, put the Buffs in a bowl, and send AB into a frenzy of good cheer. 38-24 Buffs.

    I appreciate the optimism on this thread, but I can't get there knowing how badly we've performed in the backfield recently....even if Viska plays.

    Buffs: 35
    Cougs: 45

    You do realize Cal has a top 3 defense in the P12 right?

    Let me know when Justin Wilcox, Tim DeRuyter and Cal's Secondary is coaching/playing for CU and I'll use what Wazzu did vs Cal as relevant information here.

    They’re quite good defensively. It is unsurprising wazzu wasn’t quite their normal selves against the golden bears. I expect them to rebound against the buffs.

    Just like the rest of the conference, Cal has been spotty. They did give up 37 to UCLA at home.
    Also Wazzu gives up a lot of points on the road and doesn’t have a real quality win. They are nowhere near a top 10 team IMO.
    Edit: I don’t think a single team in the PAC-12 is even top 25 worthy. Wazzu for their record, but they are not as good as their ranking. Conference is a joke this year.

    Cal is 31st in scoring defense. Teams are allowed spotty games. They’re college players. Colorado is 61st with multiple spotty games. If we’re assessing risk, I don’t see CU as too big of a stumbling block for one of the country’s best offenses.

    Again, Wazzus stats are overinflated by playing a pretty easy schedule. Wazzu is not that good sorry. Very overrated team that plays poorly on the road. We might lose because we are Colorado, but it’s not like we are going up against Bama or something. Nothing special at all about Wazzu.

    No one is special. They’re amateurs.

    Top 25 is really spotty this year.

    Cal gave up 37 points to UCLA 2 weeks after the Buffs held them to 16. I understand it can be spun anyway you want, but I’m holding to my prediction, (38-24 Buffs) until proven otherwise. Which certainly could happen.

    It is not spin to say Cal has a good defense, especially considering their offense does nothing.

    This is a BOILING take given neither team has a defense

    Buffs- 31
    Cougs- 114 (I'm assuming Landman manages to single handedly stop a few of their drives but our secondary gets torched)
