Colorado Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Buffaloes miss from the Pac-12 North Division?
The Buffaloes don’t get Stanford or Washington State. That might not be a bad deal if the Cardinal ramps things back up after a rough run, but that’s still not quite as nice as it would’ve been to miss Oregon or even Washington.
Going to Washington and Oregon State are going to be tough, but Oregon has to come to Boulder in early November and Cal makes the trip in mid-October.
Colorado Football Schedule What To Know: Where are the sure wins?
Give Colorado credit for not facing a cupcake team to tune up, but there isn’t a sure-thing win on the slate considering it has to travel to Arizona.
TCU is in a rebuilding mode and it’s a home game, but that’s tough. Going to Air Force is nasty, and heaven help us all if the trip to Minnesota is anything like the steamrolling of last year’s Golden Gopher win.
