Colorado (2-0) vs. New Hampshire (0-2) Game Preview
One Reason Why New Hampshire Will Win
For all of the problems the Wildcats have had so far in the 0-2 start, their special teams have been solid, they don’t commit a ton of penalties, and the defense has been solid.
There hasn’t been any help from the offense – the D is still doing its part.
The defensive front is just strong enough to get into the backfield and give the Buffs a few problems early on, and the secondary has held up well.
No, there hasn’t been any O, but after problems against Nebraska and looking ahead to UCLA, New Hampshire has to give the running game a shot. But …
One Reason Why Colorado Will Win
The New Hampshire offense really, really isn’t working, scoring just ten points in the losses to Maine and Colgate.
In the first two games, the Wildcats are averaging 157 yards. It’s possible the Buffs hit that in the first quarter.
Steven Montez has kicked things off as one of the nation’s hottest quarterbacks, connecting on 73% of his throws for 689 yards and seven touchdowns with a pick and a rushing score. If all goes according to plan, he plays a half, hits 12-of-13 throws, and then it’s time to dive into the bench.
What’s Going To Happen
Montez will take target practice after a rocky first drive, the ground game will take over, and it’ll be an easy day for the offense before the defense takes over. The twos and threes will get in right after halftime.
