Colorado is entering their third straight game of being at least 21-point underdogs this weekend when UCLA rolls into Folsom.

The Buffs have yet to find any type of offensive momentum this season and it looks like…...

Colorado wraps up their out-of-conference schedule with another tough opponent as they travel to Minnesota to take on a Gophers team that beat them 30-0 one year ago. It’s been a brutal stretch for the Buffs who are looking to find any type of offensive momentum before heading into PAC-12 conference play. We will get confirmation tomorrow, but at least…...

Be careful what you wish for. After a season opener in which Brendon Lewis played most of the game, Colorado fans and cognoscenti were wondering why J.T. Shrout did not play more. Shrout started and played every offensive snap in Saturday’s game against Air Force, a game that became a comedy of errors. The weather may have played a factor…...
