Arizona State (5-1) vs. Colorado (4-2) Game Preview

Game Time: 8:00 pm
Venue: Folsom Field, Boulder, CO
It’s not exactly a Pac-12 South elimination game, but it might be close.
Colorado continues to be the surprise of the Pac-12 season, even with the tight loss last week against USC. The offense is solid, the defense has been good enough, and the talent is in place to push for the South.
There’s one big problem, though – the schedule.
There’s not a layup the rest of the way, even with four of the final six games at home, and it has to take care of a solid Arizona State team that’s coming in with way too many injuries and way too many problems.
Starter Manny Wilkins missed the UCLA game with an ankle injury and is iffy this week, and No. 2 man Brady White is out for the season with a foot problem. That’s just the start of all the issues for an ASU team that’s losing depth across the board on defense.
Colorado knows all about quarterback issues, with Sefo Liufau just getting over an ankle injury, and with backup Steven Montez doing a nice job. Liufau saw time against the Trojans, couldn’t really move, and Montez took over again in the second half.
No matter who’s throwing it for the Buffs, the opportunity will be there for a massive game against the nation’s worst pass defense – the Sun Devils are getting lit up for over 400 passing yards per game.
Both teams are playing well enough to get the momentum going again after losses to the L.A. teams, but at home it’ll be Colorado who puts together the more complete performance – and with a ton of passing yards leading the way.
