So much for the idea of Colorado needing a total rebuild.
Colorado State is strong, it rumbled over Oregon State to start the season, and it looked like it might be good enough to come out hot, but instead, it got stopped cold by the Buffs.
Texas State might not have been great against Houston Baptist to start, but it’s a win – the Bobcats can’t complain about any of those after last season.
It’s a paycheck game for TXST, but for Colorado, it’s a chance to show that it’s still the reigning Pac-12 South champion, and it deserves to be seen as a potential player in the chase.
One Reason Why Texas State Will Win
Damian Williams got in the game against Houston Baptist, and he’s a possible difference-maker with the talent to carry the Bobcats.
The former Mississippi State quarterback was suspended for a bit this offseason, but he was rolling under center with a good day for the short passing game while taking off for 43 yards and a score.
It’s going to be a work in progress, but Williams is an SEC-level quarterback – he has to go off. As good as the Colorado secondary was last week, it’s still getting the parts in place.
One Reason Why Colorado Will Win
Colorado State screwed itself up with a ton of penalties and three turnovers, but Colorado had something to do with that.
The defense didn’t break – only allowing a field goal – and the offense did its part with Steven Montez overcoming two picks with a 21-of-29 day to go along with a huge performance from Phillip Lindsay on the ground.
Keep the offense moving, let the D come up with third down stops, get out with an easy win.
What’s Going To Happen
Williams will be swarmed over.
The Colorado pass rush will kick in as the defense keeps the Bobcats from getting anything going, and the offense will more than do its part with a balanced attack that should end this by the third quarter.
