Colorado (3-1) vs. Oregon State (1-2) Game Preview

Game Time: 2:30 pm
Venue: Folsom Field, Boulder, CO
Network: Pac-12 Network

All of a sudden, Colorado football is a thing again.

The Buffaloes hung around with Michigan for a while, but that seemed like a quirk aberration, and then they went into Oregon and ripped it up with a thrilling 41-38 win to show that they’re going to be a factor all season long.

This is what the program has been building for, and now it’s all starting to work offensively with an attack cranking out over 500 yards per game even without their leader at quarterback.

Sefo Liufau was out against the Ducks with a foot injury, and in stepped Steven Montez and everything kept on rolling with a fun offensive show and a clutch finish.

Meanwhile, Oregon State struggled at home against a Boise State team that might just be good enough to go 13-0, but is still a Mountain West squad that had to go to Corvallis.

The Beavers haven’t found their offensive groove, the run defense hasn’t worked yet like it should under Gary Andersen, and overall they look like they still have a long way to go.

The OSU secondary has been solid so far, but Colorado has shown it can move the ball however it needs to. At home, the Buffs aren’t going to give away the turnovers or commit the dumb penalties to help the Beavers, who’ll struggle to sustain drives long enough against a team that’s starting to do a little of everything right.
