01.Oct.2014 Oregon State @ Colorado
Thanks to last week’s game versus Cal, Colorado is putting up gaudy numbers. The QB has almost 1800 yards and 17TDs. That being said, Sean Mannion historically has performed very well versus below average defenses, and this CO defense is up and down but overall not very good. Now, I have not watched a single snap of Buff football, so this is based on last year and the stats, but I think OSU wins this game just due to Mannion playing well versus bad defenses.
The Beavs are 4-2 in this series, but most of that was pre-1990. Just one game (last year’s 44-17 win) after 1988. They are 1-2 in Boulder, but again all old data sets.
OSU’s offense is a pass happy disaster, but I think CO is one team that can work against.
